In the meantime the boxing legend threw himself a 44th birthday party in Flordia, and discussed his postponed exhibition upon his arrival.

Mayweather said: “Well, I’m not in training but I always try and maintain my weight and keep my body in some type of good condition.

“I’m not in the best shape of my life but I’m in good shape. I can take my shirt off at the beach.”

Mayweather recently revealed his bout with Paul was cancelled as they want a live crowd to be in attendance.

The American icon named the Las Vegas Raiders new NFL stadium as a potential host, as it can hold up to 80,000 fight fans.

Mayweather was quick to assure the exhibition will go ahead despite having no renewed time frame.

He said: “I know it’s going to happen. We’re just going to make sure everything’s right, everything’s where it should be.”
