Former boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr has revealed he loves to visit London pizza restaurant Dough Central whenever he is in the capital.

Posting two Instagram stories, Floyd showed his love for the Colliers Wood based restaurant to his 24.9m followers, revealing it is his favourite pizza joint to visit whenever he is in London.

Businessman and owner Amjad Khalid welcomed Floyd to Dough Central before lockdown.

He said thanks to Floyd’s support and posts, many Londoners have now discovered the restaurant and have expressed their interest in the stand-alone store.

"Support like this is so important for small businesses during lockdown," he said.

"Floyd’s stories have highlighted our fantastic pizza restaurant to many Londoners and we have had many enquires regarding deliveries and when we are reopening after the lockdown eases."

Mayweather, who is also known as "Money Man", retired from boxing in 2015 but made a sensational return to the ring in 2017 to take on UFC star Conor McGregor.

He claimed victory via TKO in the 10th round to take his career record to 50-0.

He earned a reported $350million for the bout which was dubbed the "Money Fight."

The undefeated star had been expected to take on YouTuber Logan Paul in an exhibition showdown last month, only for the fight to be postponed.

The pair will now clash later in 2021.

The 44-year-old is estimated to have a net worth of $450million.

Dough Central is currently closed due to the national UK lockdown but is available to order on Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Just Eat.
