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.

Maidana displayed the pendant on his social media handle to his fans but Mayweather has denied losing his tooth in the post-match interview.

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

"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."

Since Maidana's consecutive defeats to Mayweather, the boxer has retired from the sport but it is understood that there could be a potential trilogy with the American.
