Asian Express speaks to burger boss Tausif Malik of Mr T’s eatery in Bradford following a once in a lifetime midnight visit from international boxing megastar, Floyd Mayweather


International boxing champion and sporting superstar Floyd Mayweather may have a busy schedule, but that didn’t stop him from taking time out to enjoy pizzas, milkshakes and burgers at Mr T’s gourmet burger joint.

Floyd Mayweather made the shocking, unexpected stop in Great Horton Road to not only meet fans but also to stock up on food in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Still buzzing from the excitement Tausif AKA Mr T, tells Asian Express of how this incredible visit on 11th March came about, and most importantly, to know what Mayweather’s munch of choice is.

“It’s amazing how it all happened,” stated a stunned Mr T.

“My friend knows Mayweather and would always talk about Mr T’s with him, and the great food we have on offer here.

“Mayweather started noticing our posts on Instagram and social media, and he decided he just had to try some of what we’ve got.

“We were told late on Friday night that Mayweather would be coming after an event in Liverpool, so we reopened the shop at 3.30am to serve him.

“There were well over 100 people on the street, the police had to close the roads, and things were crazy busy!”

He added: “Mayweather noticed our wall of sporting greats, and he signed a photo we have of him there, as well as taking a painting home with him to hang on his wall in Los Angeles.”

“He’s never been to Yorkshire before, and when he finished he said this was the best food he’s ever had in England, so that’s a massive honour for Mr T’s and a huge testament to the quality of our food,” he adds.

“He spent well over an hour with us, commenting on how much he loved the restaurant and the décor and even invented his own milkshake which we’ve added to the menu. The ‘Mayweather Milkshake’ comes with a red velvet cupcake on top and then when he was leaving, he took ten chicken fillets and five pizzas with him for his team to enjoy.”

“We had the great pleasure of providing him with a birthday cake too, as it was his 40th birthday only a few weeks ago. It’s a massive honour to have been host to someone we admire so much – but even more amazing is how down to earth and keen to spend time in Mr T’s he was!”



Superstar Floyd Mayweather Jnr chants to boxing fans worldwide ‘YOU DECIDE!”

Pound-for-pound, the greatest boxer of our modern day era, USA’s Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jnr surprised everybody by announcing he would fight either the ‘Argentinian Puncher’ Marcos Maidana or Britain’s Amir ‘King’ Khan in a fight which is expected to be in Las Vegas in May.

Mayweather has always been known for his flamboyant stunts and his crazy rich living lifestyle being the world’s richest sportsman and now he has taken to the social media networks to get a feel of what the fans really want.

With a perfect record of 45 victories and no defeats, alongside the fact that no one has even come close to beating him, everybody is expecting him to fight the best opposition possible.

In all honesty, the fight the fans really crave is a fight with the Filipino punching sensation, Manny ‘Pac Man’ Pacquiao.  The only problem is that this super-fight may never happen due to the politics of boxing and also a number of specific factors.

Firstly, the Filipino’s promoter, Bob Arum, and their desired 50/50 split of the multi-million dollar fight purse, which would be the highest grossing purse of all time for a prize fight, is one factor which is likely to put off the unbeaten American.

That, alongside the Olympic style drug testing ,which would be carried out over the period before the fight, including random and mandatory blood testing after previous allegations of doping issues.

Mayweather Jnr’s negotiators, the money team, want full control of the super fight so it is not surprising that both teams are nowhere close to meeting in the middle.  This super-fight may just pass us all by, I live in hope.

Coming back to Khan Vs Maidana, Floyd Mayweather Jnr wrote on his Twitter account: ‘I am going to let all the fans vote’.  ‘Tell me who I should fight next?  Khan or Maidana?’

Everybody thought the Bolton boxer was in pole position and the fight was 100 per cent on, as he had already signed in December for this fight.

But due to a massive outcry from the fans, many thinking Khan was the most undeserving opponent to fight Mayweather, as opposed to Maidana, who was recently crowned WBA champ, beating top golden boy prospect Adrian ‘The Problem’ Broner, the question of who should face Mayweather arose once again.

Maidana, in fact, battered the loud and foul mouthed Broner braggart over 12 furious rounds.

Meanwhile, Amir Khan struggled with the limited Mexican, Julio Diaz, who, on paper, was judged an easy opponent.  Khan got knocked down in the process but got up to win on points over 12 dubious rounds.

So I can really relate to the fan’s displeasure and point of view.  But Amir Khan always brings his trademark excitement to the table and I want to see it.

So get Tweeting and vote, because I have.  And yes I have voted for Amir ‘King’ Khan because a fight between him and Floyd Mayweather Jnr serves the British interest best.
