Kiwi world champion Joseph Parker meets with Floyd Mayweather Jr in Las Vegas

  • 26/07/2017

Kiwi heavyweight world champion Joseph Parker made smart use of some downtime from training camp on Tuesday (NZT) to observe one of the greatest boxers in the world, Floyd Mayweather.

In Las Vegas preparing for his September title defence against Hughie Fury, Parker took the opportunity to go behind the scenes with the infamous American, sitting ringside as Mayweather endured another torrid sparring session.

The 41-year-old is fresh off his global press tour with UFC superstar Conor McGregor and now in the thick of his own preparations as he builds towards their super-fight on August 26.

Parker was fortunate enough to grab a few moments with 'Money' afterwards, which he shared on social media.

"Great watching Floyd Mayweather do his thing tonight," he wrote in an Instagram post.

The visit was made possible by Mayweather's personal assistant, David Levi.
