According to IOL, the retired boxing legend is not a stranger to South Africa and had reportedly visited Mzansi in 2014. The World Wide Scholarships (WWS) were previously said to have announced that the former boxer would be returning to the country on 12 December 2022 to attend the Captains of Industry Knockout Dinner which he had been invited to attend as a guest of honour.

However, the event got cancelled and Mayweather was said to have pointed fingers at the promoters and claimed that they had breached their contract, TimesLIVE reported. The event promoters reportedly failed to pay Mayweather the agreed upon fee for his attendance. In addition to this, Mayweather’s lawyer reportedly said the promoters promoted the event by using photos that insinuated that his client would be getting into the ring which was also not accurate and not agreed upon in their contract.
