Floyd Mayweather Jr. is either supremely confident, needs to scratch that competitive itch in retirement or flat-out delusional.
Or perhaps, he just has so much money to burn that he doesn't give a f**k.
The retired undefeated boxing legend, as spotted by The Shade Room, recently slid into one of Kobe Bryant's Instagram posts and challenged the retired five-time NBA champion to a game of 1-on-1 hoops for a cool $1 million.
"@KobeBryant I'm ready to play you one on one for $1,000,000," Mayweather commented on Bryant's IG post.
Take a look below.
Now, if this was boxing, we'd have to roll with Money May all day over Kobe. But since Mayweather is talking basketball, facing the Black Mamba 1-on-1 would be the quickest way that Floyd could lose $1 million ... aside from betting in Vegas. Kobe played with a killer instinct similar to Michael Jordan over the course of his 20 years in the NBA and he's a future lock Hall of Famer.
Maybe Floyd just wants to test his skills against one of the best ballers who ever did it.
Bryant, who had both of his numbers — No. 8 and 24 — retired by the Los Angeles Lakers last week, hasn't responded to Mayweather's challenge just yet. But, hey, if it's for charity, we'd be down to see this.
