Floyd Mayweather has been videoed walking a large tiger around a hotel room on a leash in the latest leg of his 'Undefeated Tour' of the United Kingdom.
The champion boxer has been travelling up and down the country taking questions in a series of venues on his illustrious career.
Mayweather, who is reportedly close to agreeing a multi-million dollar cross-discipline fight with Conor McGregor, had previously been criticised by animal rights group, PETA, after he was alleged to have had a caged albino tiger at his 40th birthday party.
In an Instagram video posted online by one of Mayweather's entourage, 'Pretty Boy' struggles to keep the collared tiger under control in a busy hotel room.
The tiger appears keen to explore the room forcing Mayweather to pull hard on the lead to keep the big cat in close proximity.
At one point the undefeated fighter bends down to pet the animal before another, smaller tiger is introduced to the room.
The American boxer sparked controversy at the end of 2015 when he revealed he had received a baby tiger from India as a 'one-of-a-kind Christmas present.'
Senior Vice-President of Communications at PETA said: "Tigers do poorly as 'pets.' They belong in their native habitats, not in a cage in a celebrity's home as a show-off prop, 100 percent certain to be discarded to a roadside zoo or a cheap circus or to meet some other tawdry end after they become too strong to handle and show a will of their own.
"Wild animals kept as amusements never have a fighting chance of a natural life.
"Having been torn away from their mothers, many end up violently beaten by trainers and all are deprived of what's natural, normal and important to them.
"PETA appeals to Floyd Mayweather to be a real champ for animals and allow his "Christmas present" to be moved to a wildlife sanctuary."
A week ago, the 40-year-old gave the clearest indication yet that he was ready to fight Conor McGregor when he announced he was 'officially out of retirement.'
"If he's really real, like he's says he is, if you really want to fight, just sign the paper. Conor McGregor, stop blowing smoke up everyone's a**e, if you want to fight, let's make the fight happen."
