082614_floyd_mayweather_launch_v2Floyd Mayweather came to the rescue this weekend -- consoling a 6-year-old boxing phenom after the kid suffered a devastating defeat in a game of musical chairs ... and we've got the footage. 

Floyd was sitting courtside at the 4th annual Ball Up Streetball Championship in Vegas on Saturday where a couple of kids participated in some musical chairs in between quarters. 

The kid lost -- Floyd jumped out of his seat and gave the kid a hug. It was a very nice moment. 

But get this ... the kid is a serious boxing prodigy!!! His name is Famous J and he trains with Floyd's uncle Roger Mayweather ... and he's QUICK!!! 

Check out the clip -- the kid's got some serious potential (not in musical chairs tho).
