Floyd Mayweather gets his ankles brutally 'broken' in charity basketball match

He's known for being one of the most arrogant athletes in all of sport - and after a 50-0 win streak in the boxing ring, it's hard to question why Floyd Mayweather wouldn't be so brash about his success.

However, the world champion professional boxer now has something to be a little embarrassed and humble about, after having his angles "broken" at a charity basketball match.

The incident took place in Los Angeles at the "50k charity challenge match", which saw the 42-year-old dropped by Larry 'Bone Collector' Williams - named for his ability to "break" other players' ankles, a term used in basketball to describe an evasive move that causes an opponent to lose balance and/or stumble.

Prior to retiring in 2017, when Mayweather engaged in a sensational fight with UFC champion Conor McGregor, he had a 50-0 unbeaten record, which saw him become the highest-earning athlete of 2018, according to Forbes.

However, while this incident might have been embarrassing for "Money", fans were quick to jump to the boxer's defense, proclaiming that unlike Williams, basketball is not Mayweather's forte:

Others couldn't help but express their shock at seeing the champion so easily defeated:

The retired champion's '0' was understandably the butt of jokes on social media:

(That being said, boxing was hardly Conor McGregor's forte...)

And because Mayweather could have pulled some boxing moves on Williams, some were surprised that he didn't in a fit of rage:

While this incident was embarrassing in and of itself for Mayweather, things got even worse when William scored a three-pointer.

Prior to this charity match, Mayweather recently made waves on social media for showing off his money: 

After being floored by Williams, there was nothing Mayweather could do but look bemused. Finally, after reigning undefeated, he'd suffered some of the pain he'd inflicted on others - albeit in a ring and instead of a basketball court.
