It was gathered that the property is the iconic Crystal Palace skating rink which went on sale at the end of last year to the tune of $4.5 million (R66 million).
It is said to be a piece of land that is known for first-dates, birthday parties and bringing back nostalgic memories of many Las Vegan childhoods.
So while News 3 may not have the transaction records to back it up, perhaps seeing is believing.
Meanwhile, Mayweather will finally come out of retirement to take on YouTuber Logan Paul in a bout which is slated for February 20, 2021.
The 43-year-old confirmed the bout on Social Media to announce his return to action having fought last in August 2017 against Conor McGregor to take his record to 50-0.
Mayweather was involved in an exhibition match in December 2018 against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa where he made $9million for just 139 seconds of work.
According to him, tickets for his fight with 25-year-old Logan Paul are already selling as both are set to make millions.
Mayweather wrote on Instagram:
"Super Exhibition Feb. 20, 2021 !!!! Early Bird Special On Sale NOW!!!! More Details Soon."
It was gathered that the early pricing is at $24.99 (£18.62) for the first million tickets sold before it rises to $39.99 (£29.80), and then to $59.99 (£44.71) starting December 29.
Briefly.co.za also reported that the superstar is reportedly planning to have a child with the lead dancer from his Las Vegas club.
The 43-year-old American already fathers five children from three different baby mamas in time past.
Having enjoyed a number of casual dates, it seems the unbeaten retired fighter appears to have changed after meeting Briton-American Anna Monroe.
And he has decided to make the relationship official at the turn of the new year after being involved with her for several months.
