They are both experts in punishing suspect defences - but in different sports.

But last night, Sunderland AFC hotshot Jermain Defoe and 15-times world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather made for a formidable sporting duo when they met up in the north east.

The pair posed for a photo in Livello, which was later tweeted by staff at the bar in Dean Street, Newcastle.

Mayweather was in the north east to meet fans at a question and answer session at the Lancastrian Suite in Gateshead.
