According to information from TMZ Sports, billionaire investor Warren Buffett backed out of his pledge to walk Floyd Mayweather Jr. down to the ring on Saturday night, after the Buffett team came to the decision that his association with Mayweather on Showtime All Access didn’t exactly look that good for him, because of the joint rolling scene that took place after Buffett’s appearance on the show.
“Sources connected to both Mayweather and Buffett tell TMZ … the mogul had agreed to walk Floyd into the ring … accompanied by Justin Bieber and Wiz Khalifa. In fact, we’re told Buffett was excited to be part of Team Money.
But our sources say Buffett’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, had problems with the spectacle, primarily because of a Mayweather documentary — “All Access.” Buffett is featured in the flick with Floyd … and the very next scene shows Money carousing with women while his posse rolls joints.
The documentary didn’t sit well with Buffett’s people — they felt it reflected badly on their boss. We’re told at around 10 A.M. Saturday … Warren agreed and 86’d his plan to walk Floyd into the ring.”
Buffett still went and watched the fight, and was even shown backstage in the locker room with Mayweather, so it doesn’t appear that Buffett is giving up on palling around with Mayweather anytime soon, or whatever he happens to be doing with the boxing phenom at any given moment. So that’s a good thing, or is it? Does anybody even care?
