Floyd Mayweather Jr. is speaking out for the first time since the passing of his kids’ mother and uncle/longtime coach. Find out what he said about how their deaths affected him, plus his pledge to help with the COVID-19 relief efforts inside…

Following the deaths of two important people in his life, boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. has kept a low profile…until now.

These last few months have been rough for the undefeated boxing champ. Last month, he first suffered the lost of his ex-girlfriend/mother of his children, Josie Harris. She was found dead outside of her California home. Weeks later, Floyd lost his uncle/former trainer Roger Mayweather. Weeks after that, his daughter Iyanna “YaYa” Mayweather was arrested for allegedly stabbing the mother of her boyfriend/rapper NBA Youngboy’s child’s mother.

It’s been a stressful time for Floyd, but he’s working on helping others even though he’s going through hell himself.

The 43-year-old opened up about the pain he felt when he learned both his uncle and kids’ mother passed away.

"I haven't had a chance to come out and really talk," Floyd said in a video posted to his Instagram account.

"I've been dealing with a lot. As far as dealing with the loss of the mother of my children, she was a significant other. A great woman, a great person. Dealing with [the loss of] a great trainer, my uncle, a father figure, Roger Mayweather."

With the recent deaths in his life and the global Coronavirus pandemic, it has seemingly taken a toll on the boxer, but he's using his pain for good this time. He wants to help people affected by the outbreak.

"I'm affected by this, it hurts to see what the world is going through," he continued. “No one is perfect... I make mistakes all the time. The only thing I can do is try to become better.

He vowed to help make the world a better place, whether it makes headlines or not.

"I'm here to help this world become a better place. With everything that's going on, I'm going to continue to do my part. I don't have to show the world what I'm doing, I can do something behind closed doors."

This definitely seems like a vast difference from the Floyd who loves to flash his millions on social media.
