Floyd Mayweather has denied he lost a tooth during a fight with boxer Marcos Maidana.

The Argentine boxer recently posted his pendant on Instagram claiming Mayweather's tooth was wrapped around the golden necklace.

"The tooth of Floyd Mayweather that Marcos 'El Chino' Maidana will use in his chain."

But the Money Man has fired back at the 36-year-old denying he never lost a tooth in their rematch in 2014.

"In the third round, when he hit me with that shot after the bell, it was a real good shot. It got my attention," he said.

"It was nothing I never felt before, but it was a really good shot which got my attention.

"No, he didn't knock my teeth out. Not at all! He's a strong guy, he's a good puncher, but no, as far as my teeth missing, absolutely not."

Mayweather and Maidana fought twice and he won both bouts in a majority decision after a controversial win in the first.

The Pretty Boy posted a better performance and outboxed the Argentine who was one of the pound for pound hard-hitting welterweights.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Floyd Mayweather had many tough fights in his career and Marcos Maidana was one of them who claimed he still has the undefeated boxer's tooth after their second fight.

The Argentine who was a two-division weight champion lost on two occasions to Mayweather in 2014 via unanimous decision.

In the rematch, Maidana landed a right-hand on Mayweather's jaw and in third round and replay showed his tooth flying out.

And years after the fight the 36-year-old claimed he still has Mayweather's tooth and uses it as a pendant around his neck.

Legit.ng also reported that Mike Tyson is sure of coming out victorious if a fight was staged between both Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua in his prime.

Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champions at the age of 20 when he defeated Trevor Berbick in 1985.

Fury and Joshua currently hold the four belts in the heavyweight division and Tyson believes it would be his if he challenges both Brits at his peak.
