Now, footage has emerged of a young fan approaching Mayweather as he was being escorted out by his security.

The young fan asked for a photo, but was allegedly denied because Mayweather said he had 'painted nails', according to TMZ.

"You got painted nails, I don't take pictures with guys with no painted nails," Mayweather appeared to say.

The young fan who took the photo then filmed his reaction.

“Floyd doesn’t want to take a photo with me because my nails are painted. Bruh, really?!” the unnamed fan in the video said.

Some fans took to social media questioning Mayweather over the alleged incident.

TMZ reports a representative from the Mayweather camp said the boxer denied the photo because he was in a rush to leave the game.

Floyd Mayweather apologies for past comment

Mayweather apologised for a 'homophobic' comment back in 2017 when he called Conor McGregor a 'f*ggot' during a press conference ahead of their boxing bout.

He later apologised and said he 'didn't want to be negative towards lesbians or gays'.
