ESPN broke the news that FanDuel will have a presence on Mayweather’s trunks for the upcoming megafight:

Daily fantasy sports company FanDuel said Thursday afternoon it bought the rights to have its name on the belt line of Mayweather’s trunks.

The deal includes branding on Mayweather’s team throughout the fight weekend and during the fight and comes with six tickets, with a face value of $10,000 each, that the company will award to the winners of three fantasy contests on its site over the next three days. FanDuel spokeswoman Justine Sacco said those winners will also get free hotel and airfare and a meet-and-greet with Mayweather.

The contests can be found here. To win the tickets, you need to enter one of the three special one-day fantasy baseball leagues, which feature a $2 buy-in.
