Floyd Mayweather to pay for George Floyd funeral services

Floyd Mayweather has offered to pay for all four funeral services planned for George Floyd, whose death in Minnesota has inspired protests and demonstrations across many cities in the United States and elsewhere around the world.

The 43-year-old Mayweather decided to offer after learning that Anzel Jennings, CEO of the TMT music label, grew up with George in Houston. Reports are that Mayweather has said he felt it was the right thing to do.

Itís not the first time that Mayweather has done something like this, as in 2011 he paid for the funeral of Genaro Hernandez, who died of cancer at 45. Hernandez was the fighter Mayweather defeated to win his first world title, the WBC 130-pound belt, back in 1998.

Mayweather has not fought since Aug. 2017, when he defeated UFC superstar Conor McGregor in a crossover boxing match. Prior to that, he hadnít fought since Sept. 2015, when he defeated Andre Berto in what was advertised as a retirement bout and has more or less stuck.
