Ex-champ Mayweather To Pay For Floyd Funeral: Report
Los Angeles, June 2 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 2nd Jun, 2020 ) :Retired ring great Floyd Mayweather will pay for the funeral services for George Floyd, Mayweather Promotions chief executive Leonard Ellerbe told ESPN on Monday.
Ellerbe confirmed to ESPN that Floyd's family had accepted Mayweather's offer to pay for funeral services.
"He'll probably get mad at me for saying that, but yes, (Mayweather) is definitely paying for the funeral," Ellerbe said.
Mayweather "has done these kind of things over the last 20 years," added Ellerbe, who said that the former five-division world champion -- who retired in 2017 with a 50-0 record -- didn't want to talk about his gesture himself.
An official autopsy released Monday found that Floyd died in a homicide involving "neck compression."Police officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with third degree murder and one count of negligent manslaughter in Floyd's death.
