As seen through various Instagram updates on Wednesday, Jan. 15, boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather and his team have officially arrived in Johannesburg, South Africa during their latest trek.

“AFRICA -- here we come. My team will travel the world these.. are just a few familiar faces,” Mayweather stated.

It’s been reported by the AP that Mayweather was paid no fee to travel to South Africa and the 36-year old five-division champion is expected to tour four cities in an effort to help “resuscitate” the sport in South Africa.

Floyd is also expected to do an exhibition workout at a gym in the Johannesburg township of Soweto as well as the possibility of visiting the late South African President Nelson Mandela’s apartheid-era jail on Robben Island while in Cape Town.

Stay tuned for more updates.
