Floyd Mayweather is known for his wealth and extravagant lifestyle outside of the boxing ring, and his car dealer has shared a particularly brilliant story.

Obi Okeke, who owns Fusion Luxury Motors, was interviewed for Mayweather’s Facebook page and shared his tale of having to get the supercar to his client within 12 hours of the phone call.
Mayweather is expected to shatter all sorts of records in his upcoming bout with Manny Pacquiao on May 2, with suggestions that the fight will raise up to $400m in revenue.
With that much money flying around, it is no wonder that the unbeaten superstar is willing to spend big when it comes to his cars and other collections, and clearly he was very keen to add the Bugatti to his garage.
“The most challenging thing I’ve ever done for Floyd is when he called me at three o’clock in the morning and said, Obi, I want a Bugatti and I want one in my driveway in 12 hours,” he said in the video on Mayweather’s official Facebook page.
“I then showered, went into my office, did some work and hopped on a plane and got the car, in his driveway, in 11 hours and that makes me a better person, it makes me work harder, it makes me not limit myself, so those are the things that rub off on me from him.”
It isn’t the only time that Mayweather has made such a request, as Okeke revealed that he walked away with a Ferrari Enzo on another early morning trip to see him as his splurge on cars continues.
There is no denying that the 38-year-old is committed to his craft as with just three weeks remaining until his super-fight with Pacquiao, he continues to shares videos of his training camp workouts.
Both men will be in prime condition come May 2, and while some argue that the fight is happening years too late, they are still expected to put on a show in what will be the biggest fight in boxing history.
