Undefeated superstar enjoyed some downtime ahead of his blockbuster bout against UFC ace on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena
FLOYD MAYWEATHER is maintaining his party lifestyle just weeks before his mega-fight against Conor McGregor.
The undefeated boxer showed off his physique in swimming shorts at a DJ set hosted by NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal.
Mayweather was not the only boxing superstar at the Rehab Beach Club event in Las Vegas, with Mike Tyson also being pictured at the former basketballer’s show.
O’Neal was performing under the name of DJ Diesel – while wearing a vest with ‘Diesel Mafia’ written on it.
The 45-year-old was animated during his set and was pictured fist pumping the air while performing.
Mayweather was pictured in the swimming pool wearing tri-colour shorts, dazzling necklaces and a blue hat as he shook hands with O’Neal.
While Tyson posed for a photo with the former LA Lakers star as the countdown to Mayweather’s fight with McGregor is underway.
O’Neal entered the world of music while he played for Orlando Magic in 1993, when he released the first of four albums.

- Shaq Diesel – 1993 (Platinum)
- Shaq Fu: Da Return – 1994 (Gold)
- You Can’t Stop the Reign – 1996
- Respect – 1998
Ahead of the fight, Mayweather made a strong statement by saying he must knock out McGregor.
The 40-year-old said: “It is a victory for him. If he goes the distance, it’s a victory for him. In my eyes, also.”
McGregor insists he will become the first man to stop Mayweather and has predicted to win bout in the fourth round.

And Mayweather added: “He believes it’s not gonna go past four, and I believe that it’s not going to go the distance at all.
“He feels one way, I feel another way. We’re both confident in our skills. We’ll just have to see.”
The pair have traded verbal blows ahead of their hotly-anticipated encounter, with Mayweather risking a homophobic storm after calling the Irishman a “f****t”.

McGregor also found himself in hot water when he was accused by his opponent of referring to black people as “monkeys”.
Money apologised for his comments, but insists McGregor was out of order for his own words.
He said: “There are certain boundaries you just don’t cross.
“In the press tour when I said something toward lesbians or gays when I said something toward him. I apologised.
“But him calling us monkeys, you have to realise, we went through years and years of up and down. Black Americans went through a lot.
“But I’m a strong individual. We live and we learn and hopefully after August 26, he won’t be speaking that same language.”
