Brawl breaks out after fight between grandson of Gambino Boss John Gotti and Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition boxing match with John Gotti III ended with an all-out brawl between both fighter’s camps Sunday night at FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Fla.

The fight descended into chaos when referee Kenny Bayless stopped the fight with less than a minute left in the sixth round.

Gotti, the grandson of New York mob boss John Gotti, seemingly said “f—k you” to Mayweather as he was disqualified for holding.

That’s when all hell broke loose.

Gotti III, 30, charged past Bayless toward Mayweather, 46, and landed a few punches before the fighters were pulled away from each other. 

Members of Mayweather’s camp climbed inside the boxing ring within seconds to confront the red-hot Gotti.

No injuries were reported in the melee as both fighters were escorted to their respective locker rooms.

Tempers first flared as Mayweather controlled the majority of the fight while Gotti was caught illegally holding the legendary boxer in addition to the frequent trash talk. 

Mayweather seemingly toyed with Gotti throughout the fight’s first five rounds. 

During the fourth round, Mayweather flashed a smile before landing a jab while Gotti was warned for holding.

“Enemy for life,” Gotti III said on Instagram. “Never put me down or stopped me. It was DQ for no reason.”

Boxer Clareesa Shields sat ringside and captured the madness on social media.

“What the f—k, man!” Shields said as a mass crowd of people filled the ring.

Brawls then also broke out elsewhere in the arena, as the entire scene devolved into chaos.

The bad blood continued out of the arena, with Gotti’s sister, Nicolette Gotti, posting a threatening and racially-charged message to Mayweather on Instagram.

“@floydmayweather your daughter was ran through by a animal with 12 different baby mamas – your little circus animal – your all a pack of zoo animals,” she wrote. “I swear on my kids I’m coming for your daughter it may be 2 years 3 years from now but I’m coming c–t.”

Mayweather last fought in 2017, when he defeated UFC star Conor McGregor to improve his undefeated 50-0 record. 

He has since competed in seven exhibition bouts following his retirement from boxing while Sunday’s fight was the first to end in a disqualification.

Gotti III was 5-1 in professional MMA but transitioned to boxing as he went 2-0 before facing Mayweather.
