The undefeated boxing star Floyd Mayweather finished his legendary career after retiring with a 50-0 record and remains one of the most successful boxers of all time. He has often been witnessed interacting with his fans. However, that was not the case on one occasion. In a bizarre incident, Mayweather had once allegedly refused to click a selfie with a teen fan for a strange reason.
Floyd Mayweather turned down a fan for a selfie
It was following Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition fight that broke the internet against the YouTube sensation, Logan Paul, the former world champion, attended an NBA game between Ja Morant’s Grizzlies vs Kawhi Leonard’s Clippers in October 24, 2021. A teenage fan approached the American boxer courtside at the Staples Center to click a selfie with him.
However, things didn’t go as the fan would have hoped for, as Mayweather refused to click a selfie because the young boy had painted nails.
In the video, Mayweather said that he doesn’t take pictures with people who have nail paints on. He said, “You got painted nails, I don’t take pictures with guys with no painted nails.”
Mayweather was recently inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame at an event. At the end of the event, Mayweather was taking photos and signing memorabilia for fans from the stage. One child approached ‘Money’ with a red boxing glove and a pen, but the boxer refused to sign the glove which he didn’t believe to belong to the boy in front of him.
Whose glove? Go get, whose gloves that is. Tell them to come here,” he said.
“It’s mine, this is my son,” a voice shouted from further back in the crowd, though Mayweather laughed and walked away to attend to other fans
