Boxing Superstar Floyd Mayweather has offered to pay all funeral expenses of George Floyd the black man who was killed due to police brutality. The boxing star revealed this during a chat with Hollywood Unlocked CEO Jason Lee.
The retired boxer reportedly shared that he was distraught after learning the minimal charge former officer Chauvin Derek received for killing George Floyd last week Monday. Mayweather added that Anzel Jennings, CEO of his TMT music label, grew up with Floyd in Houston and that Jennings reached out to the Floyd family on his behalf. The family plans to hold three services in different locations, including Houston, Floyd’s hometown, Charlotte, and Minneapolis.
According to Jason, the family is also looking for a fourth location to have a celebration of life. Mayweather also offered to take care of those expenses as well. While the original conversation with Mayweather was in private, HU’s Jason Lee explained that “I felt it was important to share this because his voice has a global impact that needs to be heard, especially during these times,” he said.
