Like we expected anything less.
After announcing on social media that he would be making his way to the country, retired boxing star Floyd 'Money' Mayweather touched down in Manila, early Tuesday morning, like only Money Mayweather can.

Aboard a personalized private jet, Mayweather and his crew landed at 2:45 am, and was greeted by a few fans and took time to answer a few questions from the media.
"I'm happy to be here. The Philippines is such a great place, so many great people, so many beautiful people. This is not my last time coming to the Philippines, actually this is my first time, but this will not be my last time." Mayweather said.
When asked what he was in the country for, the former multi-division world champion said it was all about the fans.
"The fans, I came over here because my fans have been showing me so much love throughout the years. I'm very appreciative of all my Filipino fans, I wanna say thank you."
Known for his lavish lifestyle and his propensity to flaunt his riches, of course, there was no way that Money Mayweather wasn't going to roll around Manila in style.
Waiting for Mayweather and his team in Manila were two custom The Money Team stretch Hummers, a custom Rolls Royce Phantom with the TMT logo on the side, and a couple of Lamborghinis as well.
Money ultimately chose to hop in the Lambo for his first time to traverse the streets of Manila.
Talk about a luxurious welcome.
