Floyd Mayweather looking to sue The Wine Bistro in New Orleans for false advertising

While Floyd Mayweather might technically call Las Vegas his home, you will be hard-pressed to find any superstar athlete who travels as much as the multi-division world champion prizefighter does.

Mayweather has had just five fights in the past five years, meaning he has a lot of down time, and he loves to spend his time on private jets while hitting up various hot spots and nightclubs across the nation.

However, one place Mayweather is adamant that he wasn’t inside of The Wine Bistro in New Orleans for a Super Bowl pre-game bash.

According to a report from TMZ.com on Friday, Feb. 8, Mayweather is suing the wine bar, claiming that it was falsely advertised that he and his “Money Team” posse were going to be present inside of the building for the Feb. 1 party.

In the lawsuit, Mayweather claimed he typically can make upwards of $100,000 for one club appearance alone. However, Floyd claims he never agreed to appear at The Wine Bistro, who heavily advertised his involvement on Facebook, YouTube, and with other forms of communication.

One of Mayweather’s concerns is that fans will be upset that he wasn’t present for a party in which he actually had no intention of hosting.

Mayweather is set for a May 4 return to the ring at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
