This is a class act from Floyd Mayweather. Right now, America is fractured and in a ton of pain over the death of George Floyd and the subsequent fallout.
Just turn on your TV if you don’t believe me. Cities across America are being torn apart. There are peaceful protests, but there is also violence at a high level across this great nation.
We need to stop the fighting and start coming together.

It’s a small gesture from Mayweather, but hopefully, it’ll help make things a bit easier for George Floyd’s family.
Every little bit helps. Props to Mayweather for getting involved.
