Winner of the bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics, Mayweather later made his debut that year. The man once dubbed the “Pretty Boy” has won titles in the super-featherweight, lightweight, welterweight, and light-middleweight categories. After retiring with a 50-0 record (27 KOs), Mayweather met some of the biggest fighters in the world, including Arturo Gatti, Zab Judah, Jose Luis Castillo, Ricky Hatton and Shane Mosley. He first retired in 2015 after beating Manny Pacquiao and Andre Berto.

The Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel helipad, 689 feet from the ground, has been occupied by Rory McIlroy, Anthony Joshua, and Roger Federer. It has also been used as a platform for “The Today Show,” a tennis game featuring Andre Agassi and Federer, a track car race and boxing.
