Who knew Floyd Mayweather was a Manchester United fan?

With Floyd Mayweather rounding up his boxing career this summer at 50-0, there’s no better way to celebrate than looking back at one of his classic moments: when he revealed he was a Manchester United fan.

Famous for his mind games before fights, Mayweather took it to a new level with British boxer and die-hard Man City fan Ricky Hatton during a pre-fight press conference.

Mayweather turned up to his press conference in the 2007-2008 Nike-made Manchester United home shirt to the disgust of Hatton.

Mayweather went on to win the fight against Hatton in the 10th round.

Floyd’s form must have also rubbed off on Manchester United as they went on to win the league and the champion’s league that season, turning this shirt into a Manchester United classic.
