It seems like boxing champion Floyd Mayweather just got a Christmas gift that best suits his personality.

Revealing his Christmas present to his fans, the 38 year-old American retired boxer took to his Instagram page to write, "I want to thank my family @themoneyteamrussia here in Moscow, Russia for the hospitality & my early Christmas present, a rare & exotic tiger from India. Any suggestions for a name for this two-month old, female tiger? #Moscow #Russia," Sports24 reported.

In the picture, the boxer was seen sitting with a tiger.

Notably, Mayweather isn't the only athlete to have an unusual pet, earlier American football wide receiver Dez Bryant adopted a baby monkey in October and named it Dallas.

Mayweather's post was condemned, with social networking site users criticising him for apparently planning to keep a tiger in captivity.
