The company said they hoped the move brought a touch of Tokyo Gold to inner-city Dublin.
Meanwhile, Dublin City Council says there can be no formal civic reception for the boxer, due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The hometown hero is expected back in Ireland tomorrow and councillors have already suggested honouring Kellie Harrington with the Freedom of the City.
