Undefeated boxer Mayweather, who took his professional boxing record to 48-0 when he beat Manny Pacquiao in their Fight of the Century bout on May 2 in Las Vegas, has finally been silenced and that too by an unlikely contender. 

It all took place at the BET Awards in LA on Sunday, where Rihanna, who was wearing a roll of silver duct tape as a bracelet, was made to sit next to the best pound-for-pound boxer.

Rihanna didn't win in her category for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist but she certainly entertained herself at the expense of Mayweather.

The R&B star resorted to drastic measures to stop the pound-for-pound king from eating her ear out as she stuck a piece of duct tape across his face.


Artists being honoured at the Awards included Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown, while Janet Jackson made a long-awaited comeback to received the Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual Award.
