The American boxer and retired world welterweight champion would not be coming to Nigeria anytime soon until some issues are sorted out.

The 40 year-old undefeated champion was expected to arrive Lagos on Monday for his first ever trip to West Africa, but new reports reveal that the trip has been postponed indefinitely.

The reason for this long delay is because Mayweather chose to fly to Nigeria only in his private jet, but he has not secured the necessary flight and route permits in time to make the trip.

He was scheduled to have an exhibition match for charity against former Big Brother Naija Housemate, Thin Tall Tony.

Zinni media Group who solely organized the tour for the retired boxer are yet to make an official statement.

Mayweather, who quit boxing in 2015, was scheduled to tour 3 states in Nigeria between June 12, 2017 and June 15, 2017 before going to Ghana and Liberia.
