Floyd Mayweather fight descends into carnage as dozens of fans storm into ring

Floyd Mayweather's exhibition fight against the grandson of mafia boss John Gotti ended in absolute chaos.

Although Mayweather, 46, retired back in 2017, he's continued to make a lot of money from boxing in non-competitive fights against the likes of Logan Paul and Deji.

Speaking at the first press conference before the fight, the TMT founder said: "I will continue to have fun and entertain until I am ready to say 'enough is enough'.

"And that's his [Gotti's] job to go out there, step on the gas and say 'get away from sport'."

MMA fighter John Gotti III, 30, added: "I have some experience under my belt with two fights against some tough opponents, and here we are.

"I am focused and we will just see where this takes me.

"But I am definitely going to go back to MMA because my last fight was a loss against somebody I had no business losing to, and that doesn't sit well with me."

Well, on Sunday (June 11) all the talking was done as the 50-0 fighter took on Gotti III in a what happened to be a boring exhibition bout at the FLA Live Arena in Florida - up until the end, that is.

All hell broke loose after referee Kenny Bayliss controversially decided to stop the fight in the sixth round.

However, after the decision, it seems the grandson of the infamous New York mobster was not happy one bit as he lashed out at Mayweather, by continuing to box.

Within seconds Mayweather's team swarmed Gotti and a massive brawl broke out in the middle of the ring between both camps.

On one side of the ring Gotti was cornered by both camps while an amused Mayweather sat back and watched the chaos unfold.

The arena was said to have been cleared by police, as they reportedly threatened charges against fans who were refusing to leave immediately.

To be fair, you can't blame then when the post-match antics were more entertaining that the fight itself.

In a video posted on social media, the former boxing world champion was filmed after the fight saying: "That's why they pay the big bucks, because I put on a show."

Taking to socials after the fight, Gotti said he and Mayweather are now 'enemies for life'.

"Punk b****," Gotti wrote while tagging Mayweather in footage.

"You my enemy for life. [ Conor McGregor ], we need back up.

"Bum never put me down or stopped me it was a DQ for no reason."
