After the match, pay-per-view boxing superstar joined the Juventus team with the celebrations in their dressing room.

Mayweather posed for photos with a host of Juventus stars, including Ronaldo, Miralem Pjanic, Paulo Dybala and Giorgio Chiellini.

And the boxing star also got his hands on the Supercoppa Italia trophy itself as he was welcomed into the Juventus dressing room like an old friend.


Mayweather's last sporting appearance came on New Year's Eve, when he stopped Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition bout at Rizin 14 in Saitama, Japan.
