Floyd Mayweather is a boxing icon who knows a thing or two about defending titles, and he's also a big fan of the Miami Heat.  If you recall he partied with LeBron James in Las Vegas for a celebration following the Heat's back-to-back championship.  This of course came after Pretty Boy Floyd reportedly put down a whopping $5.9 million on Miami to defeat the Pacers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.  

Looking to impart some of his championship-defending knowledge on the NBA champs, Mayweather attended a recent Heat practice.  He told the team how proud he was of their accomplishment, and spoke a little about avoiding complacency and continuing to strive for improvement.  

 

“With him being 17 years-and-0 — we’re trying to defend two titles — he’s been defending for a long time,” James said. “He definitely knows where we’re coming from. It’s definitely exciting to have someone, one of the greatest of all time, to be in your presence. It’s something you can talk about years from now when you look back on the history of sports. That guy was at our practice.”

“From one champion to another, he just talked about being proud of us and how we handled ourselves,” Wade said. “He knows, as a champion, how hard it is to go out there and compete when people try to take you down, take what you work for. He kept telling us how proud he is of us. If you got up today and you were a little tired, you walk in and see the champ, you work a little harder.”
