Larry “Bone Collector” Williams did what no boxer could do: Put Floyd Mayweather on the deck.

You hate to see it

Larry “Bone Collector” Williams did what no boxer could do: Put Floyd Mayweather on the deck.

Mayweather participated in a charity basketball game on Monday night at UCLA, captaining a team of celebs against a team led by Rob Gronkowski. Bone Collector was on Team Gronk and added the tibias and fibulas of the former boxing champ to his collection with a nasty crossover and a three over Mayweather’s lifeless body. 

Because Mayweather is a terrible person and it’s fun to watch bad things happen to him, let’s enjoy a few more angles of that vicious cross. 

This is the second year in a row that Mayweather has been humiliated in this charity event. Last year he had a shot swatted away by model and actress Brittney Elena (who was once rumored to be dating Kevin Durant). 

He needs to come back next year and get put on a poster to complete the trifecta of humiliation. 

Pete Alonso became a star

Vlad Guerrero Jr. had the most prodigious display of power but it was Mets rookie Pete Alonso who got the better of him in the final round of the Home Run Derby. Alonso didn’t just win it, he was quite possibly more fired up than anybody else in the field. 

And Alonso had a good reason to be so amped. The $1 million prize he earned is nearly double the $555,000 salary he’ll make this year, though he’s donating 10% to charity
