Floyd Mayweather’s uncle, Roger Mayweather who was said to be one of the most famous boxing trainers of all time has sadly passed away. He was 58.
Roger was a KEY member of Floyd’s training team as he trained and molded him into becoming the global phenom he is today. Many consider Roger to be the best trainer in the world.
He too was a boxer and duked it out with some pretty big stars, including Julio César Chávez and Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini.
He was also a 2-weight world champion — holding the WBA and lineal super featherweight titles back in the day, along with the WBC light welterweight title (from ’87 to ’89).
However, Roger’s health has been declining for years. Floyd actually opened up about Roger’s health back in 2015 and blamed boxing for the damage to his brain.
“My uncle Roger Mayweather has lost a lot of memory from the sport of boxing… He’s only in his 50s, but it seems like he’s an old man in his 80s.”
A few years ago, Roger even went missing but fortunately, he was located by law enforcement officials.
Sources close to Floyd say he is deeply emotional about his passing.
