“Obi, I’m not going to buy them 458s, I want to buy that Enzo and I want to buy it now. Lets go.”
That was a 3am order from super rich Boxer, Floyd Mayweather to Nigerian born US citizen, Obi Okeke who runs Fusion Luxury Motors.
The £1.5million valued super-car was delivered just 11 hours later, and was added to his collection of impressive motors.
Obi Okeke, who owns Fusion Luxury Motors, was interviewed on the video on Mayweather’s Facebook page and spoke about the very late phone call he received.
Obi Okeke and Floy Mayweather
He said: ‘The most challenging thing I’ve ever done for Floyd is when he called me at three o’clock in the morning and said, Obi, I want a Bugatti and I want one in my driveway in 12 hours.
‘I then showered, went into my office, did some work and hopped on a plane and got the car, in his driveway, in 11 hours and that makes me a better person, it makes me work harder, it makes me not limit myself, so those are the things that rub off on me from him.’
It’s not the only request that Okele has had to deal with from Mayweather’s extravagant demands, as the fighter once turned up at the dealership at 2am – walking out with a Ferrari Enzo.
‘I got a call from overseas in the Middle East that there was a US-spec Enzo for sale, so I hopped on a plane and flew to Abu Dhabi. I then transacted the car and put it in a Boeing 777 passenger plane and flew it out of Abu Dhabi.
‘So Floyd came to the dealership and he kept coming and looking at the car. Then he came in one night around two in the morning and said, “Obi, I wanna buy two Ferrari 458s,” and that’s what he said.
‘Then I said OK, then he pauses for a minute and goes, “Obi, I’m not going to buy them 458s, I want to buy that Enzo and I want to buy it now. Lets go.”‘
