I wasnt aware of that, but he never fought there once he became a star. Maybe in his early years - and all fighters SHOULD do that early on - to help build their brand. Later on it's pretty much Vegas or nothing

Let's list a few permanent tourist attractions in the world (there are thousands). The Eiffel Tower. The Pyramids of Giza. Big Ben. Buckingham Palace. The Tower of London. The Brandenburg Gate. Niagara Falls. Angel Falls. Victoria Falls. Uluru. The Sydney Opera House. The Golden Gate Bridge. The Empire State Building. Rockefeller Center. Stonehenge. Red Square. The Sistine Chapel. The Trevi Fountain. The Alhambra. The Sargarda Familie. Disneyland. Disneyworld. The Great Wall of China. Times Square. Picadilly Circus. The Taj Mahal. Central Park. The Louvre. The Statue of Liberty. Machu Pichu. Versailles.Angkor Wat. The Acropolis. The Christ the Redeemer statue. The Forbidden City. The Colosseum.

I think what you mean is: Vegas has lots of hotels and little to do of interest that is free.
The people that fly to Vegas to watch a fight are not there to see landscape monuments or Disneyworld.

They're there to drink, see strippers, and probably gamble.

And yes you need LOTS of hotels for that

BTW Floyd has already fought all over the world in the Olympics just fought an exhibition in Japan and plans on fighting in more exhibitions in other Countries...

Personally I think the energy of the UK fans is cool but fights that take place in any other country generally the energy is dull and boring and the quality of the video is less than stellar.
Did you even read my post? Read and comprehend it first...

Again read my post and comprehend. Most of you guys are triggered over nothing. Maybe I should dumb it down a bit for you to grasp the “he is PPV king” bit... Which means he doesn’t have to or need to.

That's why Floyd never fought in Texas or UK or anywhere else. They might have better STADIUMS, but the city themselves arent built for thousands of luxury tourist suites.

He was the PPV king, he didnít need to go anywhere else... Simple as. Which was highlighted in my original post.

Read fight the best possible opponent as 'the easiest opponent for the most amount of money'. Still, he is an excellent fighter.

Let me put it in more simpler terms for your simple mind. There's nothing a shame about that.

Again read and comprehend. Am a Mayweather fan, not sure why you are triggered.

Again go back and re-read my post. If you havenít grasp it by then, then I feel sorry for your life and education.

Spoken like a person with a true low self esteem. Just look at your avatar. Get a life. You wish you were where Floyd is at in life. It's not his fault your some 40+ year old loser.
