Floyd Mayweather Sr gets knocked down in sparring session

It's rare that you see anyone from the Mayweather family get into trouble in the boxing ring but that is exactly what happened this week at his son’s TMT gym in Las Vegas this week.

The 66-year-old veteran, former fighter and famous trainer, donned the gloves and challenged one of the men in the gym to a round in the ring.

Unfortunately for him, it did not go well, and his embarrassment was caught on camera for the world to see.

At first, things were looking good for Floyd Sr. He eyed up his opponent and threw a good first shot before coming unstuck against the younger man.

His opponent threw what only appeared to be a few relatively innocuous shots, but this was enough to send the great trainer flying backwards onto the canvas.

Thankfully no damage was done and as you can see below, he didn't waste anytime before jumping back to his feet and try to continue the session.

This incident came in the same week that Floyd Jr revealed he has been offered a one-billion-dollar deal to fight in the UFC.

He revealed in a chat with Kevin Hart this week on the latest episode of ‘Cold as Balls’ that he had discussions with UFC supremo Dana White back in 2017 about making it happen.

"I can go get a deal right now from the UFC. Probably 3-fight, 4-fight, billion-dollar deal if that's what I wanted."

After his recent exhibition fight with Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, people have been speculating about his next move.


However, it appears that he does not need the cash or the potential damage that he might suffer in the Octagon.

"I'll be honest. My life is great. Smart investments. I can buy whatever I want to buy, every month."

Sadly then for fans, a rematch with either Conor McGregor or Manny Pacquiao looks unlikely at this stage.
