A rather bizarre moment from a Floyd Mayweather media scrum has seemingly set the combat sports community abuzz, albeit lightheartedly. While speaking to a group of journalists at his fighter face-off ceremony ahead of the Logan Paul fight, Mayweather had trouble opening a water bottle.

Fans can watch Floyd Mayweather struggling to open the water bottle at around the 0:50-minute mark of the video embedded below (Video courtesy: MMA Weekly):


Floyd Mayweather expounded upon the size advantage that his opponent, Logan Paul, possesses, noting that he’s faced fighters of Paul’s stature before in his boxing career. Mayweather suggested that Paul would bring nothing new to the table. And midway through the conversation, the 44-year-old boxing legend turned around to grab a bottle of water.

A member of his entourage handed him the bottle, as Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe stood by alongside Mayweather’s security team and the rest of his entourage.

Floyd Mayweather then shifted his focus back to the conversation and continued talking. However, Mayweather ended up being distracted from the conversation yet again. ‘The Best Ever’ seemed to be struggling to get the cap off the bottle.

A couple of failed attempts later, Floyd Mayweather handed over the bottle to one of his bodyguards beside him. The bodyguard instantly opened the bottle and handed it over to Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather continued the interview with his signature effortlessness and confidence that he’s been known for throughout his combat sports career. Nevertheless, the footage of Mayweather struggling to get the cap off a water bottle didn’t escape the eagle eye of the combat sports community.

While most fans have been lightheartedly jesting about the legendary pugilist’s war with the water bottle, another possible explanation for Floyd Mayweather’s apparent struggle could be his long history of hand injuries.

Nevertheless, the consensus is that ‘Money’ Mayweather is in great shape heading into this weekend’s ‘super exhibition’ boxing match against Logan ‘The Maverick’ Paul.
