Floyd Mayweather now owns a baby tiger

How deeply unoriginal.

WHAT DO YOU get the man who has everything for Christmas?

Well, if you’re one of Floyd Mayweather’s friends, there’s not much point in getting him a nice watch or a flash car or a semi-decent opponent.

Safest bet is to get him a baby tiger, which is exactly what his Russian entourage appear to have done.

Mayweather posted this picture of himself and this female cub on Instagram last night.

“I want to thank my family @themoneyteamrussia here in Moscow, Russia for the hospitality & my early Christmas present, a rare & exotic tiger from India,” he wrote.

“Any suggestions for a name for this two-month old, female tiger?”

Hate to break it to you, Floyd, but Mike Tyson has already done the whole tiger-as-pet thing. How deeply unoriginal.
