This is clearly not a good time for retired and undefeated boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather, as a few days after the shocking news of the death of his ex-girlfriend and mother to three of his children, his uncle and trainer, Roger Mayweather has been confirmed dead. 

Floyd Mayweather confirmed the sad news through his promotional body on Tueday 17th March 2020. He said he is mourning the loss of “one of the most important people in my life” he said of his uncle, Roger Mayweather.

Roger Mayweather died on Tuesday, aged 58, following years of ill health.

After being a world champion himself, he helped train his nephew to become one of the greatest boxers in history over an unbeaten 50-fight career.

“Roger was a great champion and one of the best trainers in boxing,” said Floyd Mayweather, 43.

“My uncle was one of the most important people in my life inside and outside of the ring,” added Mayweather, who was already grieving after the mother of his three children died on 11 March.

“Unfortunately, his health was failing him for several years and now he can finally rest in peace. Roger meant the world to me, my father Floyd Sr, my uncle Jeff, our whole family, everyone in and around the Mayweather Boxing Gym and the entire boxing world. It is a terrible loss for all of us.”

A statement from Mayweather Promotions added: “Roger’s spirit lives on with us forever.”

Roger Mayweather held world titles at featherweight and welterweight in the 1980s.

As a trainer, he guided his nephew to wins over Ricky Hatton and Oscar de la Hoya
