Floyd Mayweather stopped by ESPN Chicago on Wednesday to promote his Sept. 14 fight against Canelo Alvarez, and he took an opportunity to pay homage to Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose.

"You guys got one of the best athletes, and one of the best basketball players in the world," Mayweather said on "The Waddle & Silvy Show." "Derrick Rose is truly amazing. He's a great athlete. I keep my fingers crossed and hope he can bounce back from this (ACL) injury."

Mayweather said there was a time he would communicate frequently with Rose.

"We haven't spoke in a while, but we used to speak almost every day," he said. "At one particular time when he got to the playoffs, we would speak every day."
