- Floyd Mayweather has vowed to continue giving his wealth during the lockdown
- The boxing legend has had a pretty rough start to 2020
- Mayweather lost the mother of 3 of his children as well as his uncle Roger
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has stated that he would continue to give his wealth to assist people affected by the coronavirus crisis, after series of family tragedies, Daily Star reports.
Mayweather has had a rough start to the year 2020 having lost his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris who gave birth to three of his children.
Harris was found dead at her home in Valencia, California on the night of Monday, March 9, and according to TMZ, the mother of Floyd's three kids was pronounced dead after police found her unresponsive inside her car at around 9.30pm.
The 40-year-old's death did not appear to be a ho**icide case and police treated it as a death investigation as opposed to her being killed.
And just days after, he also lost his uncle Floyd Mayweather's uncle Roger who has passed away at the age of 58.
Roger was heavily involved in the legend’s training team following his own successful boxing career.
Floyd attributed his discipline to his uncle who is regarded as the finest trainer of his generation.
Speaking on his Instagram channel, Mayweather said: “With everything going on I'm going to continue to do my part and I don't have to show the world what I'm doing. I can do something behind closed doors, it's not about the money."
Mayweather went on to talk about the family tragedies.
“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 and a great person.
“And dealing with (the death of) a great trainer, an uncle, a father figure, Roger Mayweather. I've been dealing with a lot and haven't had chance to come out and speak to the world.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Mike Tyson was known for his brutal and merciless punches against opponents during his active boxing days which made him as one of the greatest boxers ever.
The American made so much money during his career in boxing and was the youngest boxer to win an heavyweight title when he was just 20 years.
Going by all his achievements and the money he made, one will find it difficult to believe that Mike Tyson was declared bankrupt in the year 2003.
And according to the report on UK Sun, things were very difficult for the American that time that he had no choice than to sell his 50-room mansion.
