Floyd Mayweather is originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, yet he appears to have a “Empire State of Mind.”
Floyd Mayweather spoke with Earn Your Leisure podcast not just about the $2 billion bid he claims to have made to acquire an NBA team, but also about the business efforts he’s making in New York.
“Just in New York alone, I got nine skyscrapers. I got a casino coming to New York City in Times Square,” Mayweather explained on the Earn Your Leisure podcast.
Why Mayweather Has Become An Investor In Casino
Mayweather’s involvement in the casino seems to be a natural fit as he has been heavily involved with one of the partners on the bid — SL Green.
Jay-Z’s Involvement With Caesars Palace Times Square
Caesars Palace Times Square has the potential to make Mayweather and his partners a lot of money while also helping the local economy and the state of New York.
According to a press release, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation will serve as the official entertainment partner of SL Green and Caesars Entertainment in their bid for Caesars Palace Times Square.
In addition, Caesars Palace Times Square intends to generate billions of dollars in tax revenue for the city of New York.
