Former Newcastle and England midfielder Kieron Dyer has lifted the lid on his ‘surreal’ night at the ‘Mayweather mansion’.
Dyer’s career was blighted by a succession of injuries but it allowed the boxing fan to travel to Las Vegas to watch Floyd Mayweather beat Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto and Manny Pacquiao.
And it was after the Cotto fight in 2012 that Dyer bagged an invite to party with Mayweather at his $9.5million mansion and he had rapper 50 Cent to thank for it.

Speaking on the Golf Life podcast, the 41-year-old explained: ‘In the Cotto fight, there was this guy we knew who is really close to Carlton Cole, he used to be a DJ for 50 Cent.
‘Obviously 50 Cent and Floyd used to be best mates. After the fight, he rings me up and asks what I’m doing.
‘I say I’m probably going to go to one of the big clubs in Vegas but he wants me to meet him, everyone is going back to the champs, everyone is going back to Floyd’s.
‘I met him, and turned up at Floyd’s house. Must have been about 200 people in the house.

‘He had all his belts on the table, there was hardly any sight of him.
‘There were women everywhere. I was walking around Floyd’s house, it was very surreal.’
Mayweather has since purchased another mansion in Las Vegas for $10m. It has 11 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. There are indoor and outdoor pools, as well as two detached four-car garages.
He also has a $25m home in Los Angeles which includes a candy shop, a 12-seat cinema, and a wine rack with 225 bottles.
