Since arriving in the Philippines early Tuesday morning, retired boxing star Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. has already been able to go to Palawan, get some basketball in, do some shopping, and try out some Chicken Inasal.
That's already a lot in a span of just three days.
Early Friday morning, the 41-year old former five-division boxing world champion, accompanied by his staff and Ilocos Sur Governor Luis "Chavit" Singson, boarded his private jet and headed to Davao City, where he was welcomed by Special Assistant to the President Christopher "Bong" Go.

"I'm happy to be here, the hospitality, so many great people," Mayweather said, via a report from ABS-CBN's Berchan Angchay.
Much like what he did in El Nido, Money Mayweather is looking to get some more sun and sea in beautiful Davao.
"Namasyal lang po siya sa dagat dito sa Davao. Gusto niya kasi ang mga dagat, andito sila para mag-relax at mamasyal," said Go.
It was also reported that Mayweather and Go are discussing a possible meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte.
Of course, SAP Bong Go was able to get a selfie with Money Mayweather as well.
Mayweather and his entourage are expected to hit up the Pearl Farm Beach Resort in Samal Island.
