When Floyd Mayweather Got His 'Ankles Snapped' After Being Dropped On The Basketball Court

When Floyd Mayweather Got His 'Ankles Snapped' After Being Dropped On The Basketball Court

Floyd Mayweather went through his entire boxing career without tasting defeat, but he suffered a big 'L' when he stepped on to the basketball court.

The former pound-for-pound king walked away from boxing with a perfect 50-0 record after beating the likes of Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor, among others.

He swapped the ring for the court after enjoying a glittering career in the squared circle as he took part in a charity basketball match.

Mayweather flashed his 'b-ball' skills in Monster Energy 50K Charity Challenge in Los Angeles, but it didn't end well as Larry Williams performed a savage crossover that dropped the boxer.

Williams then completed his move with a three-pointer whilst Mayweather was still lying on the floor. They don't call Williams the 'Bone Collector' for nothing.

Talking of the court, that's where Mayweather struck a deal with Dana White.

The 42-year-old announced his return to combat sport in a social media post after agreeing a deal with the UFC president.

"It's true," White said. "We sat at the Clipper's game, we started talking. And we literally got a deal done right there on the court.

"We shook hands. We have a deal, and if things play out the way that Floyd. I think they will. I'll probably sit down with Al Haymon in March and get a deal on paper.

"Let's see how the next few months play out. We could be doing something fun. I think if everything goes our way, Floyd and I would be doing something in October or November."
