Now that’s dedication! Pound-for-pound boxing king Floyd Mayweather may have his hardcore fans, but big man Martin Villarreal caught Pretty Boy’s attention with this full-back tattoo immortalizing the undefeated champ.
The tattoo includes various portraits of Mayweather, the facade of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas (where Floyd has fought his last 11 bouts), and Floyd’s mantra of “Hard Work & Dedication.”
“I love my loyal fans,” Floyd, 38, captioned his Instagram of Villarreal’s ink. “Thanks for 20+ years of support. Fans like you are the reason why I win in and out of the ring.”
Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs), who is coming off one of his most anticipated matchups, decisively beating Filipino icon and Fighter of The Decade Manny Pacquiao last May 2, will be looking to secure a place in boxing history by earning his 49th win on Saturday, September 12 when he takes on former IBF and WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto.
Berto (30-3, 23 KOs), was last in the ring with back-to-back victories over Josesito Lopez and Steve Chambers– those two wins coming on the heels of consecutive losses for the 31-year-old Florida native, to Jesus Soto Karass and Robert Guerrero.
The Mayweather-Berto fight will be broadcast live on Showtime Pay Per View starting at 8 P.M. ET/ 5 P.M. PT.
