As per reports, after his uncle Roger Mayweather’s unfortunate demise, the former WBC world champion has decided to carry forward his legacy by stepping up as a boxing trainer. Roger Mayweather was in Floyd Mayweather's corner as he went undefeated throughout his career and played a key role in Floyd Mayweather’s boxing journey. Roger Mayweather is also regarded as a true pioneer in the sport of boxing and Floyd Mayweather is keen on carrying forward his legacy by stepping in his uncle’s boots.

While interacting with Boxing Scene, the CEO of Mayweather promotions Leonard Ellerbe said, “Boxing is his (Floyd Mayweather’s) first love. It’s the first thing he knew how to do. When you have setbacks or are going through things, that’s what you turn to. It’s your safe haven. He likes being around the gym. He’s really passionate about becoming a great trainer. When he makes up his mind to do something, he does it. He’s in the gym, putting in the work and perfecting his craft as a trainer.”
