All hell broke loose Sunday upon the conclusion of an exhibition match between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and the grandson of an infamous New York mobster, John Gotti III, in Sunrise, Fla.
Midway through Round 6 of 8, Gotti was disqualified by referee Kenny Bayless for repeatedly grabbing Mayweather. The decision fired up Gotti, who shoved the referee aside and charged Mayweather as he through punches.
Both Mayweather and Gotti roll deep with entourages, who rushed the ring and created a chaotic scene as each combatant was shoved seemingly every which way.
Prior to the stoppage at FLA Live Arena, Floyd Mayweather played to the crowd as he taunted and showboated his way through the first five rounds. Despite the unfortunate ending, Floyd Mayweather pockets another exhibition win.
Floyd Mayweather, 46, has not competed in a professional bout since August 2017. However, the bout vs. Gotti marked his seventh exhibition match. Other exhibition opponents have included Logan Paul, Deji Olatunji, and Aaron Chalmers.
Gotti, 30, is a 2-0 professional boxer, who also compiled a 5-1 pro MMA record from 2017 to 2020.
