Floyd Mayweather has volunteered himself to cover all funeral costs of fellow Black-American George Floyd who died under the hands of Minneapolis cops.

Mayweather Promotions confirmed on Twitter that the undefeated boxer will shoulder all the expenses of the Floyd family.

“Undisputed champion @floydmayweather told @HollywoodUL in an exclusive interview, that he will commit to paying for the funeral costs of George Floyd.”

Derek Chauvin, the police officer who kneeled on Floyd’s neck for a long period of time, were relieved off their duties as well as the three officers involved in the said incident.

Floyd’s death paved the way for citizens across and outside of US to protest for #BlackLivesMatter.
