  • Floyd Mayweather Provides Generous Offer To George Floyd's Family

Floyd Mayweather will pay for the funeral services for George Floyd, according to a Mayweather representative.

Mayweather made the offer, according to a TMZ.com report Monday, because it's what he feels is right for Floyd's grieving family.

Unarmed black man Floyd was killed in Minneapolis last week after white police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes. The tragedy has sparked protests and riots around the country, including the Los Angeles area.

Leonard Ellerbe, the chief executive officer of Mayweather Promotions, told ESPN, "He'll probably get mad at me for saying that, but yes, [Mayweather] is definitely paying for the funeral".

Ellerbe also confirmed that Mayweather has been in touch with Floyd's family, which accepted Mayweather's offer.

Mayweather, who lives in Las Vegas, has not met the Floyd family. The two fought in 1998 for the WBC super featherweight title, with Mayweather prevailing by eighth-round technical knockout to win his first world title. Hernandez died 13 years later of cancer, and Mayweather handled funeral expenses.

Mayweather, 43, produced a 50-0 record, the all-time best record for a boxer.
