Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition fight with John Gotti III ends in massive brawl

Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition boxing match with John Gotti III ended in an all-out brawl between the two sides of fighters Sunday night at the FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Florida.

The fight descended into chaos when referee Kenny Bayless stopped the fight with less than a minute left in the sixth round.

Gotti, the grandson of New York mob boss John Gotti, apparently said “fuck you” to Mayweather as he was disqualified for detention.

That’s when all hell broke loose.

Gotti III, 30, passed Bayless towards Mayweather, 46, and landed a few punches before the fighters were pulled away from each other.

Members of Mayweather’s camp climbed inside the boxing ring within seconds to take on the scorching Gotti.

No injuries were reported in the melee as both fighters were escorted to their respective dressing rooms.

Tempers initially flared as Mayweather controlled the majority of the fight while Gotti was caught illegally holding the legendary boxer in addition to the frequent trash talk.

Mayweather apparently toyed with Gotti throughout the first five rounds of the fight.

In round four, Mayweather flashed a smile before landing a jab while Gotti was booked for holding.

“Enemy for life,” said Gotti III on Instagram. “Never put me down or stopped me. It was DQ for no reason.

Boxer Clareesa Shields sat ringside and captured the madness on social media.

“What is it, man!” The shields said as a massive crowd of people filled the ring.

Mayweather last fought in 2017, when he defeated UFC star Conor McGregor to improve on his undefeated record of 50-0.

He has since competed in seven exhibition bouts after retiring from boxing while Sunday’s fight was the first to end in a disqualification.

Gotti III was 5-1 in professional MMA but switched to boxing as he went 2-0 before facing Mayweather.
