Floyd Mayweather might be preparing for a £330m bout billed as the 'Fight of the Century', however he can't resist a few treats during the build-up to his meeting with Manny Pacquiao.

His personal chef, Quiana Jeffries, has given an interview in which she reveals the American fighter's choice dishes.

"Twizzlers are his favourite," said the person entrusted to prepare Mayweather's food since his fight with Pacquiao was announced.

In the interview with New York Magazine, Jefferies, who goes by the name of 'Chef Q', revealed Mayweather's most unhealthy demands are for "fried hot dogs... with barbecue sauce".

She explained: "I cut them longways, and fry them up in a little coconut oil. I spice that up the barbeque sauce, too.

"I add a oranges, orange zest, and other spices. He loves barbecue sauce. Everything with barbecue sauce. But that's life. You like what you know."

Mayweather's eccentricities are famous and it seems his demanding nature extends to his eating habits.

"If Champ wants a meal at three, four, five, six in the morning, I have to be ready for that," Chef Q said.

"He's called me at four and says, 'I want that oxtail."
