Floyd Mayweather Jr. touched on many things Tuesday night at the downtown Los Angeles news conference promoting his Sept. 14 junior middleweight title fight against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez at MGM Grand in Las Vegas (on Showtime pay-per-view). One subject broached was the tragedy that saw 19 firefighters lose their lives fighting a wildfire near Prescott, Ariz. on Sunday.
Mayweather said his company, Mayweather Promotions, will make a donation to the surviving families.
“Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the people who lost their lives in those fires,” he said. “This was a terrible tragedy and everyone needs to support them. Never take anything for granted.”
