Infamous bad boy boxing champion Floyd Mayweather finally did something nice in his life when he sent a young child a pair of signed boxing gloves she can use to “fight” cancer.

NFL player Devon Still’s fiver-year-old daughter Leah garnered national attention when she was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma. But the little girl got a surprise in the mail from Mayweather, and both she and her dad are thrilled with the gift.

“When she was diagnosed with cancer I told her she had to win every round (like boxers- mayweather to be exact) of chemo/treatment and she would win the fight against cancer,” Still wrote on Instagram on Wednesday.

Mayweather, notably known for beating men inside the boxing ring and beating women in his private life, got word of Leah’s struggle and sent her the signed pair of his boxing gloves.

“He surprised Leah with an autographed glove for winning her fight and he threw in another glove for me to auction off at my first annual Still Strong Foundation Gala!,” Her father Devon wrote on the Instagram picture.

There you have it folks, Floyd Mayweather has officially done something nice.
