Former pound for pound number one boxer Floyd Mayweather and current lineal heavyweight lineal champion Tyson Fury have met at the venue where Fury will challenge Deontay Wilder for the WBC title on December 1st.
Fury will take on Wilder at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on December 1st and took in a basketball game at the venue between the LA Lakers and the Atlanta Hawks.
LeBron James earned the Lakers a dramatic win in the end but both Mayweather and Fury stole the show afterwards with the following:

Between them the two are 77-0 in combined professional boxing records.
No doubt Mayweather will be in attendance at the fight ahead of what promises to be the biggest heavyweight title fight since Joshua vs Klitschko and before that, Klitschko vs Fury.
Fury moved his training camp from Big Bear down to Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym in LA recently for the final couple of weeks preparation ahead of December 1st.
The next two weeks will be the hardest of his training camp and arguably of his life to date, with one week usually left before fight night for recovery and to get energy back then.
Wilder similarly is in freakish shape which makes this fight all the more interesting.
Expect the unexpected come December 1st.
