Mayweather lost his uncle Roger Mayweather and Josie Harris (the mother of three of his children) in March 2020. Both of them died within days of each other.

58-year-old Roger had been battling health issues while Josie’s death came as a shock to everyone. She was 40.

As for dealing with the loss of the mother of my children, she was a significant other. A great woman, a great person“, Mayweather said.

Speaking on his late uncle, he added, “Great trainer, my uncle. A father figure.

According to TMZ, Mayweather didn’t have a great relationship with Josie. He served time for attacking her in 2010 and she later sued him for over $20 million, claiming he wrongly portrayed her as an unstable drug user.

Now, the American professional boxing promoter says he is turning his attention to COVID-19, promising to help those in need, even if he doesn’t show it publicly.

He said:

“I’m here to help this world become a better place… 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.

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 because of this situation.

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’s what is important to me.

He added:

“To everyone in the world, from Floyd Mayweather and The Money Team, we love you all and we’lol always be there do this country as well as this world.”
