Floyd Mayweather relaxes from training by feeding animals in Dubai as talks continue over MMA debut

The boxing legend released a training video at the weekend showing him working out in a Las Vegas gym, with plans for his first fight scheduled before the year is out.

There is not believed to be a deal in place just yet, but Mayweather, who retired undefeated from boxing, looks all set for a sporting crossover.

In Dubai, it was his caring side and not his fighting side that he decided to show off.

The 41-year-old uploaded a video to his Instagram account showing him feeding a giraffe some leaves.

But it was Mayweather carefully feeding a baby bear that will tug at the heart strings.

The American crouches down as the animal puts his paws up and takes a swig of milk from a bottle.

Someone in the background asks what the bear is called – without originality comes the response "Teddy".

TIP TOP David Haye is looking like THIS ahead of his boxing rematch

In his training video posted at the weekend, the former pound-for-pound king was working out and looking as sharp as ever – despite not fighting since his win over Conor McGregor last August.

Mayweather recently confirmed he had started MMA training and will fight at the end of the year at featherweight – the same weight at which McGregor won his first title.

He said he is embarking on a six to eight-month training camp to get him prepared for his Mixed Martial Arts bow.
