While Neville interacted with his fans over Instagram in broad daylight, Floyd Mayweather out of nowhere “dumped” his car in the middle of the road and walked past Neville. In fact, a lady who accompanied ‘TBE’ also approached Neville and asked if he played football. Neville branded the incident as “surreal” and offered his fans a glimpse of ‘TBE’.
