Actors, musicians, and most other famous people are avoiding Donald Trump's inauguration like the plague, but that's not dissuading Floyd Mayweather Jr.

During a recent chat with TMZ Sports, the retired star excitedly admitted that he will be making the trek over to Washington D.C. on January 20 to watch the coronation of the 45th President of the United States.

"Am I going to D.C.? Yeah, y’all see me in D.C!" Mayweather said. "Y’all see me in D.C. looking good. I got my tux and everything ready. All black affair. Bow tie or regular tie?"

Inauguration Day won't be the first that Mayweather will have lent his star power to the incoming president. He previously met with Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. in New York City shortly after the election.

Mayweather told TMZ Sports that his conversation with Trump revolved around his campaign promise to "Make America Great Again."

"All Donald Trump talked about was helping America become great again," Mayweather said. "That’s what he talked about."

Always a people person, the decorated pugilist doesn't have a grudge against Trump because "he's never been mean" to him.

"I like everybody. I don’t have nothing against nobody," Mayweather said. "He’s never been mean to me. Donald Trump came out to support me for the Manny Pacquiao fight, and I was appreciative for that. A lot of times what we do is we judge people that we really don’t know. We judge people that we really don’t know. So I’m not here to say nothing negative about nobody."

He added, "Barack Obama was a good president, and hopefully, Donald Trump is a good president."

Mayweather probably won't be the only combat sports personality to help usher in the Trump Administration. president Dana White spoke on behalf of Trump at the Republican National Convention and the president-elect recently chose former CEO Linda McMahon for a Cabinet position, so it wouldn't be a surprise if they stopped by the festivities later this month. Considering how bizarre this whole election has been, a Stone Cold stunner at the inauguration isn't out of the question either.
