Maria Sharapova and Floyd Mayweather’s viral moment

This worked in her favor well when she shared the same stage with ‘The Pretty Boy’, who stands 5 feet 8 inches.
Both walked to the stage to present the award for ‘The Money Team’ event, and the huge height difference was quite visible. While Sharapova was speaking, Mayweather was standing behind her. He got fade out for a moment. When his turn came, he came in front. Meanwhile, Sharapova leaned on him jokingly to remind the boxing legend of her lanky presence. This made the audience laugh.
Even Mayweather took it in a good zest and enjoyed the funny moment with Sharapova.
