Plus he still wants to open a restaurant with him.

Back in January, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he wanted to open a restaurant with shouty chef Gordon Ramsay. Now he wants Ramsay to cook his meal personally after his bout with Manny Pacquiao on May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and offered him ringside seats to do it.

"All I want in return, after I win the fight, is to go a little way down the Strip to his grill at Caesar’s Palace and have the best chef in the world cook me up chicken wings, a burger and cheesecake," Mayweather Jr. tells the Malaysian Digest. "And I don’t mean one of his employees, I want the best chef in the world cooking my post-fight dinner — that's not much to ask for ringside tickets."

Mayweather Jr. is still kicking around the idea of opening a restaurant with Ramsay, but apparently they still haven’t had a conversation about it. "If I open a restaurant I want it to be the best and to have that I got to have the best chef. I am going to be speaking with Gordon Ramsay about becoming my business partner and us opening a restaurant. It would make sense for both of us."
