American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr has found a girlfriend, Doralie Medina, ahead of his battle with Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas on Saturday

As unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr gears up to take on Manny Pacquiao in what is touted to be the battle of his life, the American boxer has big reason to smile as he has got a new girlfriend — his former masseuse Doralie Medina.

He has been dating Medina for the last few months after they met when he gave her a job as a masseuse two years ago. Not for nothing that Mayweather is nicknamed "money". The 30-year-old Medina has moved into his mansion in Las Vegas. The 38-year-old boxer has given her innumerable gifts.

He has even nicknamed her Bad Medina. "Floyd has a huge heart, he is very loving and very caring.

He is very outgoing but the thing that people don't see is the very sweet, generous man that he is," she was quoted as saying by mirror.co.uk.

Pampered with gifts
For her birthday, Mayweather gifted her a Rolls Royce Ghost. In one post she shares a photo of herself with her Yorkshire terrier puppy, Louis, aboard her boyfriend's 30 million pound jet which he calls "Air Mayweather" and captioned the picture: "Try not to become a woman of success, but rather try to become a woman of value #BadMedina."

The former beautician regularly posts pictures of the mansion, which welterweight champion Mayweather moved into last year. The sprawling house even has its own Instagram page named Bad Boy Mansion.

She is by his side as he prepares to take on Pacquiao ( 37) at the MGM Hotel in Las Vegas on May 2, along with popstar Justin Bieber, who is a close friend of the boxing star. He was sentenced to 90 days in prison in 2011 for battering Josie Harris, his ex-girlfriend and mother of three of his four children.
