New, comments

Floyd Mayweather was a guest last night on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, following his win this past weekend over Robert Guerrero.

Jimmy Fallon

Congratulations, you beat Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero over the weekend. 44th win for you. 0 losses.

Floyd Mayweather

It's been a long career, what else can I say? It's been a long career.

Jimmy Fallon

You've been boxing ever since you were a little kid, right?

Floyd Mayweather

Basically my whole life. I actually had my first fight where it counted in 1987.

Jimmy Fallon

You just turned 36, right? You look so young. Is it easier now because you know more?

Floyd Mayweather

It's like fine wine. You get better with age.

Jimmy Fallon

I gotta say, it's fascinating to watch you fight. It's so fun, but it's so dangerous. I get worried about you.

Floyd Mayweather

The less you get hit, they say the longer you last. I approach it kinda like chess. Not checkers, chess.

Jimmy Fallon

I was also doing some research, you live in Vegas.

Floyd Mayweather

Love Las Vegas.

Jimmy Fallon

Yeah, Las Vegas is fun. I do a lot of stand-up out there. But there's a lot of gambling out there, and I'm not good at gambling. This guy is one of the--

Floyd Mayweather

Professional. Professional.

Jimmy Fallon

You love to gamble.

Floyd Mayweather

I do a little bit. I do a little bit. Just a little bit.

Jimmy Fallon

I just wanna show everyone this. This is a "little bit." This is a ticket, this is a million dollar bet.

Floyd Mayweather

No, I bet $1.1 million to win a million.

Jimmy Fallon

Did you watch the game?

Floyd Mayweather

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Jimmy Fallon

I wouldn't be able to watch the game!

It was a cool game!

Jimmy Fallon

I wouldn't be able to watch it, I wouldn't be able to do anything. I don't know what I'd do. I'd leave the country.

Floyd Mayweather

No! No!

Jimmy Fallon

I'd get a new life. I'd hide somewhere.

Floyd Mayweather

Well, we know that you got the best show on late night TV of course.

Jimmy Fallon

That's why I love this guy. I follow you on Twitter. He's at @FloydMayweather, and I gotta say, he's an exciting guy to follow, if you don't follow him already. He's the best living boxer we got out there right now, I think he's amazing. But the one fun thing, that you also see, is he brings celebrities and cool, fun people with him to the fights. Great people like Lil Wayne and Justin Bieber. I love that you do it! You put on a show for everybody.

Floyd Mayweather

I feel like if you're the best, why not hang with the best?

Jimmy Fallon

Your next fight is September 14th, we don't know who you're fighting yet, gosh, you're gonna kill him, whoever it is. I just want you to know that I'm available if you need me to be by your side in the ring.

Floyd Mayweather

Please! Please! I need you! Please!

Jimmy Fallon

I'm gonna bet, like, $2 million that you win.

Floyd Mayweather

I need you right by my side!

Jimmy Fallon

We love you. Floyd Mayweather, you guys!
