Boxing Legend Attending Trump Inauguration: ‘Hopefully He’ll Be A Good President’

Floyd Mayweather will attend President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration next week.

“Am I going to D.C.? Y’all [will] see me in D.C.,” he told TMZ Sports in a video released Friday. “Y’all [will] see me looking good.”

The former boxing champion said he already had his tuxedo picked out for the celebration.

Mayweather, a longtime friend of Trump’s, encouraged people who are concerned about Trump’s presidency to keep an open mind.

“We don’t know what can happen in life,” he said. “Only thing we can do is keep our fingers crossed, pray and hope for the best.”

Refrained from revealing whether he is a Republican or Democrat, Mayweather praised President Obama for being optimistic, but said he also looks forward to Trump’s administration.

“[Obama’s] a very positive person. He’s very, very positive, which is a great thing,” Mayweather said. “Barack Obama was a good president and hopefully Donald Trump is a good president.”

“[Trump’s] never been mean to me,” Mayweather said. “Donald Trump came out to support me for the Manny Pacquiao fight and I was appreciative for that.”

A world champion in five divisions, Mayweather is widely considered one of the greatest boxers of all time. He was undefeated with 49 victories (26 by knockout) before retiring in 2015.
