Roger Mayweather, former world champion, uncle and ex-trainer of ex-pound-for-pound leader Floyd Mayweather, has died at 59. The team of the latter confirmed the fact of death, writes TMZ.
The cause of death and location were not disclosed.
According to the source, Roger’s health deteriorated over the past decade, and eventually became so bad that Floyd had to make the difficult decision to find a new coach. In return, Roger was coached by his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., in the final years of his “handsome” career.
“My uncle lost a lot of memory because of Boxing,” Floyd said in an interview. — He’s only in his fifties, but he looks like an 80-year-old grandfather.”
During his time as a boxer, Roger competed in the 2nd Featherweight, lightweight, super lightweight, 1st Middleweight and Middleweight divisions, and held the WBA and WBA titles in different divisions. He boxed from 1981 to 1999.
Known for the winged expression, which he used often and with pleasure: ” Boxing – you don’t know shit about it”.
Usyk about quarantine measures: all nonsense- go to the temple and everything will be fine
For the former absolute heavyweight champion Olexandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KO), there is no worse virus than “sin”. This is how the boxer commented on the temporary ban on certain Church rites during the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic, the video is posted on the Luckypunchnet Facebook page.
“All nonsense, friends —” he said ironically. — Go to the temple, take communion, and confess. And then everything will be fine.”
The heavyweight debutant is convinced that if ” the Almighty allows us some things that he holds in his hands, then something will happen to us.” And if this happens — some kind of attack or a deadly infection, then Usyk believes that it is necessary, because God ” gives us all this in order that we humble ourselves and follow his path, along which he leads us.”
“I want to say such a thing that nothing happens, because we all take communion from the same Cup, and with us all thank God,” summed up the anti — quarantine match Usyk.
Previously, he said that “all you can do is just live your life and use (antiseptic) hand spray.”
