Great grandfather Floyd Mayweather Sr. proves “still got it” at aged 69
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Sr. posted a video of himself hitting the bag this week, proving he’s still got the moves as he approaches his seventies.
The former contender and renowned trainer took to showing off a lightning-quick combination that anyone – aged 69 would be proud of at their time of life.
Mayweather Sr. is enjoying more time to himself these days as son Floyd Mayweather Jr. continues his career in exhibitions.

His only title bout was a defeat for the USBA welterweight strap against Starling in a 1985 rematch of their initial 1981 meeting.
Starling won both contests via unanimous decision.
