And Williams, seeing Mayweather on the floor, completed his move by scoring a three-pointer as the crowd went wild about the incident.

The 42-year-old was still lying on the ground in amazement of how he went to down so easily, also with a huge smile on his face.

Meanwhile, Mayweather announced his return to boxing in a social media post after agreeing to a deal with the UFC president Dana White.

"It's true," White said. "We sat at the Clippers' game, we started talking. And we literally got a deal done right there on the court.
"We shook hands. We have a deal, and if things play out the way that Floyd and I think they will, I'll probably sit down with Al Haymon in March and get a deal on paper.
"Let's see how the next few months play out. We could be doing something fun. I think if everything goes our way, Floyd and I would be doing something in October or November."

The 19-year-old showed off photos of his Mercedes SUV, which cost over $40k (R570k) on his Instagram page.
