Floyd Mayweather watches Inter Miami streak with Lionel Messi end alongside Hall of Famer with new job


Two US sporting heavyweights were left disappointed at seeing Inter Miami’s nine-game winning streak with Lionel Messi end.

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather was joined by MLB royalty Ken Griffey Jr to see Messi in action in Florida.

Unfortunately, it was a night where Messi’s qualities were stifled by a resilient Nashville defence.

The contest ended 0-0, meaning it’s the first time Inter Miami have failed to score since Messi’s blockbuster arrival from Paris Saint-Germain.

As far as the club are concerned, it wasn’t for the want of trying as the Argentine superstar racked up no less than seven shots on goal, including a late right-footed effort that was saved by Nashville goalie Elliot Panicco.

But despite holding 70 per cent possession over the 90 minutes, Messi couldn’t inspire Inter Miami to victory on a frustrating night.

Mayweather Jr and Baseball hall-of-famer Griffey Jr weren’t the only A-listers in town to get a glimpse of Messi in action, with FIFA president Gianni Infantino also on hand to watch.

They weren’t the first celebrities to line up for Inter Miami tickets either, with Kim Kardashian, LeBron James, Serena Williams, Camilla Cabello and Diddy among those to turn out at Inter Miami matches since his arrival.

Griffey Jr, meanwhile, was working on the night.

The Hall of Famer, baseball player has pursued a passion in sports photography since retiring from playing where he spent 22 years in Major League Baseball.
