And prior to Mayweather’s outing inside the squared circle, the 1996 Olympic bronze medallist bumped into British icon Khan.

Khan long campaigned for a fight against the 50-0 boxer, but a dust-up between the two never materialised.

The pair showed there is no animosity between them as they were all smiles in their get together.

Taking to social media, Khan shared a clip of him and Mayweather having a friendly chat.
