The undefeated former champ fed the bear — named TMT Floyd Mayweather — an apple and took several selfies. His panda was previously called Maodou [soy bean] and was born in the summer of 2016. Mayweather, 40, paid half of the £11,100 adoption fee which will go to the research centre looking after the cuddly bamboo-muncher. Floyd Mayweather feeding his panda an apple on the end of a pole.

After beating Conor McGregor in boxing’s all-time richest fight before retiring for a second time, Money has been enjoying some down time. He has been on a tour of China which will take him to Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Macau. Mayweather receives a stuffed panda toy during the adoption ceremony.

Former world champion Gervonta Davis is perhaps his biggest star but the youngster has struggled with issues out of the ring.
