In an interview with the Sunday Daily Star in England, the 41-year-old billionaire stated, “I love Newcastle. Those guys like to party as hard as any city I have been to anywhere in the world. I met some of the players last year and they are good guys. I am always open to new business opportunities and I love all sports, but I invest with my head not my heart.”
However, Mayweather is cautious about the move and would only be convinced to go through with it if it’s a smart business opportunity. “Investing with your heart is the quickest way to lose money,” Mayweather said. “But if somebody put together a business plan and my people looked over it and went ‘Floyd, that can make money,’ then I would invest. Soccer might not be my game but I’ve got connections everywhere.” He added with confidence, “Cristiano Ronaldo has been a long-time supporter and buddy of mine, so I might even be able to get him to finish his career off at Newcastle.”
