Upscale Entertainment, organizers of Floyd Mayweather's cancelled trip to Ghana, confirmed to the media that the tour had been cancelled until further notice, and later tweeted it on their Twitter page.

Mayweather's trip to Africa was supposed to be part of the boxing champion's social responsibility to people of African decent by way of health initiative dubbed: "Boxing Meningitis away from Africa".

Floyd "Money" Mayweather and the Money Team had been scheduled to touch down in Accra on June 15th-16th after having visited Nigeria.

Though reasons for the cancellation have been scanty, it could be because the much anticipated bout between Floyd Mayweather and mixed martial arts UFC champion, Conor McGregor, may just be on the horizon. Furthermore, Mayweather has also booked the MGM Grand in Las Vegas - the venue for his last twelve fights - for August 26th this year.

The UFC champion cryptically tweeted to his fans that "something big" is coming on his Twitter page, further fueling suspicions that a fight with Mayweather could be just beyond the horizon.

Though a new for Mayweather's visit is yet to be set, Mayweather fans could take solace in the fact that after the potential McGregor vs Mayweather fight, the boxing world champ may still make his trip to Africa.
