The deal between the two reportedly involved an amount worth US$1m in 2015, which allowed the company to include its mascot among Mayweather’s entourage in a fight that year. He was also spotted eating a BK burger in 2017, another possible link between him and the company during that period.

Floyd Mayweather’s Previous Endorsements / Sponsorship deals
Mayweather signed a deal with Reebok in 2009 for a period of one year. The two parties chose not to extend their agreement in 2010, which may have been a hit for the company given that it was evolving during said period.
Mayweather signed with FanDuel ahead of a fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015. He sported the company’s logo on his shorts. The deal was deemed to be a rare one for the fighter, given the fact that he does not enter into too many sponsorship deals of this nature. The reason for his small number of sponsors is not due to the fact that brands are unwilling to endorse the star, but rather because the entry-level bid for them is US$1 million.
