FLOYD MAYWEATHER was spotted giving Anthony Joshua some pearls of wisdom as the Brit trained for his massive rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
AJ, 32, is working in Dubai as he prepares to go toe-to-toe with the Ukrainian again after surrendering his titles in September.
Earlier this week, Joshua was seen giving some advice to Chris Eubank Jr ahead of his now-delayed clash with fierce rival Liam Williams.
And now it was the Brit's turn to be on the receiving end of some wisdom.
As Joshua trained on the bag, Mayweather was seen slumped on the floor alongside him.
At one stage, 50-0 veteran Money, 44, pulled AJ to one side for a quick chat, before the heavyweight got back down to business on the aqua bag.
The Watford icon has been training in the Middle East alongside friends and fellow fighters Lawrence Okolie and Eubank Jr.
And after meeting up with Mayweather, Joshua later shared a picture of the two on Instagram.

AJ captioned the snap: “The best to do it and always helping the next generation. Big respect champ.”
Joshua has been training with a variety of coaches across America – including Virgil Hunter, Eddy Reynoso and Ronnie Shields, since his September loss to Usyk.
And SunSport understands his time with Team GB mastermind Rob McCracken, at the English Institute for Sport in Sheffield, has come to an end after over a decade of incredible success.
And, while getting some warm-weather work in the UAE, he has been hitting the pads with Anthony ‘Chill’ Wilson at the exclusive Binous gym.
But he had an extra special guest in Mayweather – who has been in the region promoting a number of business ventures across his social media channels – for his latest training session.
SunSport understands Joshua's rematch with Usyk is tentatively slated for late March.
