A Floyd Mayweather super-fan refused to get off his knees and nearly died while paying tribute to the boxing legend.
The boxing superstar is currently preparing to headline an exhibition in Dubai on February 20, just four days before his 45th birthday.
And in the lead-up to that event, he took time out to visit some of his loyal supporters in the Middle East.
But one man was particularly overwhelmed upon meeting his idol, and fell on his knees in adoration.
And when some of Mayweather’s men attempted to pull him over so they could take a picture together, the fan declined, insisting that he had to stay on the floor.
He eventually got back on his feet and took a picture with the 50-0 man.
A gracious Mayweather hugged his loving fans before proceeding to congratulate them.
Meanwhile, the American boxer recently claimed that he plans to hold more exhibition events after next month.
He said: “One fight? We can have more than one fight.
“We want to give people some entertainment. So yeah, it’s going to be more than one fight.”
The event will be staged at the helipad of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.
Announcing the bout, Mayweather said: “February 20, we haven’t picked an opponent yet, but I look forward to it and hopefully we’ll give you guys something to watch.”
Mayweather officially retired in 2017 after defeating 33-year-old UFC superstar Conor McGregor in a fascinating crossover match.
But he has returned twice, starting with one-round demolition work on featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, in both appearances.

Most recently, in June he was trampled over eight rounds by 26-year-old YouTuber Logan Paul, who weighed TWO STONE more.
Mayweather insisted that his time in the boxing ring was over.
But it looks like the game’s richest fighter has had a change of heart once again, and is now planning to bring several shows to the Middle East.
