When a teenage schoolboy got his ass handed to him during a game of Fight Night against an anonymous online opponent, his response was to send a message simply asking: “Who do you think you are, Ricky Hatton?”. Close, but no cigar! The reply came back: “Actually, I’m Floyd Mayweather” – the only man to have knocked out Ricky Hatton, funnily enough.
Being knocked down three times in the first round by former world champ Mayweather wouldn’t be such a big deal, but George Guest, 15, surely wouldn’t have expect this to be happening over the PlayStation Network.
George, from Kent said: “I can’t believe it. I went a round with one of the best boxers in the world — and he knocked the granny out of me. He was taunting me like Muhammad Ali.”
The pair then went on to have a casual chat.
“I didn’t believe him at first but he started talking about his family and his fights and everything.”
Retired six-time World Boxing Champion Floyd also sent George personal pictures and messages and claimed that he was currently training for a comeback in Las Vegas. His agent Kevin Lueshing said: “Floyd is mad on these computer games and plays them all the time.”
