Despite being 70 years old, Floyd Mayweather Sr. has still got the moves. Mayweather Sr., who played a crucial role in establishing his son Floyd Mayweather Jr. as one of the most skillful boxers to compete, recently revealed his dance skills inside the gym. On a regular day at the gym, while everyone remained busy training, Mayweather Sr. grooved on his feet.

Mayweather Sr. is quite fond of dancing and has offered glimpses of his moves on various occasions. A few years ago, at the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame, he took part in a dance-off with Natia Corrales, daughter of Diego Corrales, former WBO and WBC world lightweight champion. On another occasion, running into model Erica Mena, he displayed his dance moves impressing those who watched.

Along with everyone else, Fabulous was surprised to see that Mayweather Sr. still looked forward to grooving on his feet. It was in 1975 that Floyd Mayweather Sr. made his debut in the pro ring. He fought in the welterweight division. Despite having an impressive career, he never held a title in pro boxing. In 1985, Mayweather Sr. faced Marlon Starling with the IBF USBA welterweight title on the line. However, Starling defeated Mayweather via UD. Following the loss against Starling, Mayweather squared off against Roger Turner. Unfortunately, he suffered the same fate against Turner and retired from pro boxing.
