5 famous boxers who have fought inside a pro wrestling ring
#2 Floyd Mayweather
The biggest star in boxing today, Floyd “Money” Mayweather, is a born showman and a great talker. It would always garner interest for him to feature in the WWE and he did so several times to build up to WrestleMania XXIV in 2008.
Billed as "The Biggest vs. The Best", these two men squared off at the Florida Citrus Bowl. The 5’8″, 160lb Mayweather would take on The Big Show in a No Disqualification matchup. With The Big Show at 7′ and 425lbs, it was a true spectacle.
Mayweather was almost choke slammed, but one of Mayweather’s crew saved the day with a steel chair. In the ensuing mess, Mayweather was able to put on brass knuckles and KO Big Show to take the win.
In the almost eleven years since that show, Mayweather has won ten more fights and has been a part of a fight that generated the biggest buy rate to date, against Manny Pacquiao.
