This is the moment Floyd Mayweather Sr. sparred in his eponymous boxing club – and got floored.

Mayweather, 66, got into an impromptu sparring match with former boxer and boxing coach Ross Thompson, 45, at Mayweather Boxing Club, in Las Vegas.

But Floyd Mayweather Jr’s dad did not emerge victorious on Monday Feb 4, 2019 and – ended up on the deck.

“They were having a bit of a trash talk outside of the ring,” said an onlooker, who filmed the video but did not wish to be named.

“Ross told Floyd Senior that his brother Roger Mayweather was a better trainer than him, so Floyd Senior got mad at that and so he threw a few shots about Ross’s career,” claimed the onlooker.

“Then Floyd told Ross that he wouldn’t be able to touch him, because he’s too big… like ‘you won’t be able to touch me, I hope I don’t hurt you’ then they got in the ring and went for it,” he said.

“It was really macho, it was great.

“They dodged each other in the ring for a bit, next thing you know Ross put a combination together and Floyd goes down, that’s a sequence of punches, almost like when you’re dancing and you have a sequence of steps, they were pretty fast and it got Floyd Senior laid out on the ground.

“He wasn’t quite unconscious, he was just went down hard, I’d say he was lying dazed on the floor for about 30 seconds after he hit the ground.

“Then he got up, we were all laughing and talking cra*p…they wound up shaking hands in the end.”

Ross Thompson, who threw the winning punch said: “We were getting into it at the club, we have a history, he likes to trash talk at me.

“He likes to trash talk, he’s just like his son.”
