Throughout his illustrious boxing career, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has never been dropped as a pro or an amateur. And that’s saying something, as “Money” has faced some of the best in the business, including Canelo Alvarez, Manny Pacquiao, Marcos Maidana and yes, Conor McGregor.
But he’s never faced no one quite like Larry Williams, a famous streetball basketball player known for his slick dribbling moves and ankle-breaking crossovers which have earned him the “Bone Collector” moniker.
During a recent charity basketball game featuring several prominent celebrities and athletes from all walks of life, Mayweather found himself guarding Williams immediately after tipoff. In fact, Floyd was “Money” with his defense at first, preventing Larry from executing his infamous moves that have dropped several foes before.
Though that solid defense didn’t last long.
Indeed, after analyzing his defender — at one point dribbling the ball through Floyd’s legs — “Bone Collector” executed his infamous crossover on “Money,” causing the pugilist — who was warned by the PA announcer not to guard him — to go crashing down on the hardwood.
And the crowd went wild!
“If you don’t respect it, you will get collected,’ said Williams. “Floyd Maywather is the richest ankle I have ever collected.”
To top it off, “Bone Collector” nailed the three in another defender’s face. That said, Floyd took the drop well, laughing it off before getting back on offense, though he remembered to give Williams a bit more space the next time around on defense.
