🥊⚽ Floyd Mayweather hints at possibility of buying Newcastle United

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is reportedly expressed his interest in buying English Premier League club Newcastle United, according to Sky Sports.

According to Forbes, Mayweather was the highest-paid athlete of the last decade where he earned $915m (£686m) during that time span.

The five-weight former world champion was seen at Newcastle's O2 City Hall over the weekend as part of his ongoing Evening with Floyd Mayweather tour.

In a video posted by TMZ, event host Steve Wraith reminded Mayweather that the last time he made an appearance at Tyneside it was being reported that he was very much interested in buying Newcastle.

In response, Mayweather said: "In the US we call it soccer, but the Newcastle football team is an unbelievable team…..a hell of a team."

Mayweather further added: "If the people want me to buy the Newcastle team, let me know!"
