Undefeated boxing legend is less than impressed at British fighter’s remarks in build-up to clash with Gervonta Davis
FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR provided a hilarious response as the undefeated boxing legend was told: “No man is unbeatable.”
With less than four weeks to go before his protege Gervonta Davis takes on Liam Walsh, the American star was in London to help promote the fight.

Rochdale-born Walsh, who will challenge Davis for the IBF World Super-Featherweight Title, said: “Gervonta has been touted as the future of boxing and the next superstar, but no man is unbeatable.”
Mayweather’s attention was quickly captured, and he instantly turned to give the 30-year-old the eyeballs.
