Let's start from the beginning.

Floyd Mayweather is the son of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Sr.

And predictably, Floyd went on to follow in his father's footsteps and take on the boxing world.

The forty-three-year-old is now a legend in the world of professional boxing.

During his career, he won fifteen major world titles including The Ring in 5 weight classes, the lineal championship in 4 weight classes (twice at welterweight), and retired with an undefeated record.

He is often referred to as the best defensive boxer in history...

As well as being the most accurate puncher since the existence of CompuBox, having the highest plus-minus ratio in recorded boxing history.

He is one of the highest-paid athletes in the world...

So it's safe to say that he has a lot going for him.

People with as much power as this should be using their voices to make a difference...

And right now, we need unity more than ever.

The death of George Floyd last week has shaken the world...

And millions are now protesting for the rights of black people in not only America, but also throughout the world.

George was only forty-six years old...

And he was an innocent man who did not deserve to die - especially at the hands of police officers.

America is living in complete disgrace right now...

And even though the police officer who knelt on George's neck has now been arrested on charges for murder, our country is angrier than ever.

Protests have turned violent...

And the issue of police brutality in our country is now more apparent than ever.

The scenes have been truly apocalyptical...

And even though the protests are to demand justice for George and the black community, so many people have been left fearful for their own lives.

People are grieving and are feeling so much pain...

And, of course, George's family will be going through total and utter hell right now.

Demanding justice for his brother, Terrence Floyd took to the streets of Minneapolis to tell crowds that "rioting won't bring my brother back."

His family has spoken of how George was a "gentle giant" and how he was a peace activist. He would have hated all of this violence.

Life will be extremely overwhelming for them right now...

And this is when we go back to Floyd Mayweather.

It has emerged that the boxer has offered to pay for George's funeral service.

TMZ has reported that Floyd has vowed to help the family grieve their loss as respectfully as possible.

There won't just be one service, however...

He is offering to finance all 4 services for Floyd in Houston, Minnesota, Charlotte, and another location that is to be named at a later date. Floyd is giving a total of $88,000 towards these services.

Floyd said that he felt it was the right thing to do...

Especially after learning that Anzel Jennings - CEO of the TMT music label - grew up with George.

George's family have not yet spoken out on the generous offer, though TMZ report that a rep confirmed to them that they have accepted it...

We're sure that they'll be overwhelmed with Floyd's kind gesture.

Rest in Peace, George.
