FLOYD MAYWEATHER WILL PAY FOR GEORGE FLOYD’S FUNERAL SERVICES

Floyd Mayweather will pay for the funeral services for George Floyd, according to a Mayweather representative.

Floyd, who was black, died last week in Minneapolis after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes. Chauvin, who was fired on Tuesday, was charged Friday with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

“He’ll probably get mad at me for saying that, but yes, [Mayweather] is definitely paying for the funeral,” Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, told ESPN on Monday.
