Our condolences are with Floyd Mayweather and his family at this time. According to sources, his uncle Roger Mayweather – one of the famous boxing trainers ever passed away at the age of 58.
Roger was one of the key players who shaped and molded Floyd making him the legend that he is. TMZ reports:
“He was also a 2-weight world champion — holding the WBA and lineal super featherweight titles back in the day, along with the WBC light welterweight title (from ’87 to ’89).
Roger had been in declining health for years. In fact, Floyd opened up about Roger’s health back in 2015 and blamed boxing for damaging his brain.” He says:
“My uncle Roger Mayweather has lost a lot of memory from the sport of boxing,” Floyd said … “He’s only in his 50s, but it seems like he’s an old man in his 80s.”
Rest in peace, Roger Mayweather.
