Floyd Mayweather had a boxing match last night, which was news to a whole lot of people. Even if you follow sports news religiously, it was easy to miss this one. However, it turns out that the legend was doing an exhibition match against John Gotti III. Overall, it was not a fantastic matchup, and the fanfare surrounding it was pretty minimal. That said, this turned out to be one of the most entertaining things that Floyd has been part of in a long time. Albeit, for all of the wrong reasons.
As you can see in the clip below, the fight was stopped in the middle of the sixth round. This was all due to the fact that Gotti had placed Mayweather in an illegal hold. Moreover, there were reports of some heavy trash talk, as well as some antics from Gotti's side of the ring. Subsequently, after being told the fight was over, Gotti rushed at Floyd Mayweather and kept trying to box. This led to both camps entering the ring and fighting with one another. The Money Team was not about to let their guy get jumped, and Gotti paid the price.
