Floyd Mayweather has told TMZ that he plans on being in Washington on January 20 to watch Donald Trump be inaugurated as the 45th American President. Trump is set to take over at the White House from Barack Obama after beating Democrat nominee Hilary Clinton last November in a stunning upset. Many of Trump's detractors protested following the result of the 2016 US Presidential election, with Trump being heavily criticized throughout his campaign for his views on immigration and Muslims, as well as his behavior toward women.

Several celebrities have also been vocal about their disdain for the business tycoon, with fears for what his presidency may mean for the United States moving forward.

Mayweather and Trump

One celebrity who doesn't have an issue with Trump, however, is Floyd Mayweather. Mayweather is widely regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers of all-time, retiring with a perfect professional record of 49-0 in the autumn of 2015, and claims that he plans on attending Trump's inauguration on January 20.

Mayweather told TMZ "Y'all going to see me in D.C looking good, I got my tux and everything ready, all black (tie) affair." Mayweather's comments come as good news to the Trump camp, who have reportedly struggled to find celebrities willing to appear at the event, with some as much as stating they were boycotting it. However, Mayweather seems to have a decent relationship with the President-elect. The two were pictured together following Trump's campaign victory last November. Despite the continuous criticism of Trump as he gets set to take his seat in the White House, recent information has revealed that the billionaire turned down a $2 billion business deal in Dubai, as he felt it may be a "conflict of interest," as well as inviting a working class family who had lost their son in Afghanistan to attend his inauguration.

Mayweather continues to keep his name in the spotlight

Despite being retired for well over a year now, Mayweather has managed to keep his name very much in the spotlight as he continues to tease a potential return to the ring against UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
