Caesars Palace Times Square

While the boxer boasted about owning nine skyscrapers in New York City, he says he is also involved in the opening of Caesars Palace Times Square.

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.

“SL Green is a company that I’ve been working with for so many years, and Andrew Mathias you know, great business guy,” Mayweather said.

“‘You see that building right there?’” Mayweather recalled while telling a story of a walk he went on with Mathias, who serves as president of SL Green Realty Corp. “He said, ‘Yeah, We own that. You see this building? We own it.’ So we was walking and walking. Then he said, ‘You know, a boxer makes money when he boxing. A football player makes money when he playing football. Basketball player makes money when he playing basketball.’ He said, but New York real estate, you make money when you sleep.’”

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.

“New York is a beacon, the epicenter of culture. We have the opportunity to create a destination at the heart of Times Square, the true crossroads of the world,” Jay-Z said in a press statement. “My partnership with SL Green and Caesars, this coalition, has all the promise and commitment to economic opportunity, growth and enrichment for the community, and everyone who visits the Empire State.”
