Floyd Mayweather, along with the boxing world, mourns the death today of his uncle, former world champion and legendary trainer Roger Mayweather, after a long battle with diabetes.
Terribly sad news. My first true mentor in the sport. I was fortunate enough to
have known him well before he was famous. Got a chance to be his punching bag a few times in the ring and can personally vouch for his vaunted power.
He was wildly gregarious in social life while completely abstaining from any form of drugs or alcohol. He chased pussy incessantly. Wore his heart on his sleeve and spoke his mind without a shred of reluctance.
No man who ever lived loved boxing more.
