All eyes are on Sunrise, Florida tonight as Floyd Mayweather returns to the ring. Of course, Mayweather is an 11-time world boxing champion who went 50-0 in his professional career. Despite his out-of-ring controversies, he is inarguably one of the greatest fighters of all time. He is also 3-0 in scored exhibition matches since retiring from professional fighting.
His opponent tonight is not as well known. John Gotti III is a professional MMA fighter and boxer. Gotti III had a nice 5-0 start to his professional MMA career before being out-grappled at a CES main event in 2020. He shifted to professional boxing after a number of comeback fights fell. He is currently 2-0 in his boxing career and ranked as the #702 in the light heavyweight division by BoxRec. However, the main appeal of Gotti III as an opponent is his connection to the Gambino crime family, which was run by his grandfather and father. However, the fight has now announced a pretty fire musical set to accompany what many expect to be a very tame fight.
BlueFace And Chrisean Rock Headline Mayweather-Gotti III Bout
The announcement came via the Instagram page of The Zeus Network, the network that holds the Pay Per View rights to the fight. In the video, Mayweather introduces BlueFace “and his better half” as the headliners for the night’s non-fighting entertainment. Of course, this comes at a very messy time for the couple. There is a lot of drama going down between the two. However, most recently they were seen clubbing together.
Furthermore, the appearance is something of a surprise given that BlueFace was recently arrested for robbery. However, he’s out of jail so he can do what he wants. It will be interesting to see what sort of performance they put on given their history and current status. The Zeus Network also announced a number of supporting acts for the pair. These include Joseline, Lunay, Ozuna, and Jhayco. The Zeus Network-exclusive proceedings begin at 6pm Eastern Time on June 11. Are you looking forward to the fight? Let us know in the comments.
