'I Ended Up At A Party At Mayweather's House'

A former Premier League and England star has revealed how he once ended up at a party at the house of legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather.

Ex-Newcastle United midfielder Kieron Dyer officially retired from football in 2013, but suffered from many injuries in the final stages of his career, which allowed him time to do other things.

A year before hanging up his boots, the 33-time England international was in the US to watch Mayweather take on Miguel Cotto in the ring, a night that ended with Dyer at the boxing superstar's mansion.

"In the Cotto (vs Mayweather) fight, there was this guy we knew who is really close to Carlton Cole, he used to be a DJ for (US rapper) 50 Cent," he told the Golf Life podcast.

"Obviously, 50 Cent and Floyd used to be best mates. After the fight, he rings me up and asks what I'm doing.

"I say I'm probably going to go to one of the big clubs in Vegas, but he wants me to meet him, everyone is going back to the champs, everyone is going back to Floyd's.

"I met him, and turned up at Floyd's house. Must have been about 200 people in the house.

"He had all his belts on the table, there was hardly any sight of him.

"There were women everywhere. I was walking around Floyd's house, it was very surreal."

Dyer spent the bulk of his professional career at Newcastle, where he famously got into a punch-up of his own with teammate Lee Bowyer following an argument on the field.
