People were forced to wait at Resorts World for more than 8 hours on Tuesday only to find out that Floyd Mayweather Jr. won't be coming.

The former pound-for-pound king was supposed to face the media in a press conference scheduled at 3 p.m., but he did not show up, without any reason given.

Mayweather hopped off his private jet on Tuesday afternoon and went for a short vacation in Boracay.

He returned to Manila for a press conference with Belo Medical Group.

Mayweather had one final commitment at Resorts World.
 
This is the second time that Mayweather visited the country; he also went to the Philippines in May 2018.

ABS-CBN's Gretchen Ho was among those who patiently waited for Mayweather to show up.

They had to wait for 8 hours before the Resorts World PR informed them that Mayweather won't be around.
