FLOYD MAYWEATHER Jr.- FACT OR FICTION?

LAS VEGAS HAS A REPUTATION FOR BEING A PLACE WHERE IT IS NOT UNKNOWN FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE TO HAPPEN AND THERE IS EVIDENCE ON OCCASIONS A PUNTER WILL GET LUCKY AND BEAT A CASINO. IT IS ALSO THE PLACE WHERE THE WORLD’S FINEST ILLUSIONISTS PERFORM IN CABARET AND LEAVE AUDIENCES AGHAST AND TOTALLY MESMERISED.

iNTO WHICH CATEGORY SHOULD THE FOLLOWING NEWS STORY FIT  WE LEAVE TO YOUR IMAGINATION?

It began with Floyd Mayweather Jr. walking through the eye-catching retail shops in Bellagio, which are owned by the MGM Grand International property Company, when a Rolex watch with green emeralds priced at US$400,000 caught the boxing champ’s roving eye.

With his next fight against Manny Pacquiao, which is due to take place in the MGM Grand casino facility on May 5 and is estimated to gross US$200-$300 million, the boxer who added to his Christian name, the word ‘MONEY’ could afford to make every day the true day for gifts, 26th of December - Boxing Day - but  at US$400,000 even when ‘Mr. Money’ saw the fab watch, he had to make a ‘double take.’

No doubt a watch gleaming with green saphires and has only six brothers and sisters in the whole wide World, and with a price tag of US$400,000, would cause even a whirlwind to pause.

Nevertheless, the ever watchful Bellagio shop Executive, Aladdin’s caves don’t have managers, saw the pause and faster than a throw of the dice , the Exec decided so much was owed by so many Las Vegas businesses and people to the ‘Money Man’ they just had to show their appreciation. and make it a freebie.

It is true the loyalty between Team Floyd Mayweather Jr. and the Las Vegas community has resisted all attempts by others major sports venues to entice Team Mayweather away from the high rolling Nevada State facilities.

In commerce such devotion is without parallel.

However, the cynics scorn such devotion as being a Hollywood make-believe illusion. Their belief is much more practical.

Why have the major problems of filling a costly 80,000 stadium, with all the attendant costs and aggravations, when for a near similar return the far easier to manage MGM Grand in La Vegas is ready, willing and able to give full satisfaction.

Good sense does not always mean less ticket sales will not aggregate better financial returns. 

In Team Floyd Mayweather Jr. there is no shortage of good commercial sense.

Is the Bellagio story true?

In the surrounding world of Floyd Mayweather Jr. truth and fantasy are often inseparable but on this occasion without a major publicity presentation event nd the presentation by a major politician, accompanied by a brass band,  the odds are heavily in favour of it being another folk lore fantasy in the City that thrives on extravagant make-believe. ~
