In a video shared by Floyd Mayweather, the Ray actor shook hands with the boxer before impersonating him. The actor’s impression was strikingly accurate and left the boxer laughing in surprise.

This is not the first time that the actor has impersonated a boxer. Back in 2015, it was announced that Jamie Foxx would be starring as Mike Tyson in his biopic. However, the project suffered several delays due to the film’s changes in producers and directors. As of 2021, the biopic will no longer be a film but rather a feature series and will be directed by Antoine Fuqua. Martin Scorcese will be the executive producer. The recent video of the actor proves that he is fit for the role.
