Mayweather vows to help needy amid coronavirus pandemic
MANILA, Philippines — Floyd Mayweather Jr., still grieving from the death of his uncle and the mother of his children, vowed to help in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
In his latest Instagram post, Mayweather also opened up about coping with the loss of his uncle and former trainer Roger Mayweather and Josie Harris, the mother of three of his children, who both died in just a span of one week last month.
“I’ve been dealing with a lot as far as dealing with the loss of the mother of my children. She was a significant other, a great woman, a great person and dealing with a great trainer, uncle, a father figure Roger Mayweather,” he said.
“So I’ve been dealing with a lot and I haven’t really had the chance to come out and speak and talk to the world. I’m affected by this to see what the world is going through but I want us to stick together and keep believing.”
The 43-year-old Mayweather, who retired in 2017 with a 50-0 record, is one of the richest athletes in the world with his estimated net worth reportedly believed to be ranging from over $500 million to $1 billion.
And he certainly has no problems sharing it with those in need.
“I’m here to help this world become a better place so with everything going on I’m going to continue to do my part. I don’t have to show the world what I’m doing. I can do something behind closed doors,” Mayweather said.
“It’s not about the money, and the money that I will be giving up will be to feed the people and help the people that don’t have a lot as of right now in this situation,” he added. “I will continue to give back and I will never talk about it. As long as God knows that I’m doing a good deed, that what’s important to me.”
