The 9th Watson Celebrity Basketball Game will be held Sunday at Cal State Northridge and the host will be none other than world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The game is played to benefit local charities and this year a portion of the proceeds will go to Lifedriven Foundation, an organization that works with children with cancer.
“It’s great to give back,” Mayweather said in a statement. “The Watson family has always been good to me. If it’s for a great cause, I am here to support it.”
Several boxers are among the celebrities expected to attend. Advance tickets can be purchased by calling 818-677-2488. They are priced at $10 for general admission and $25 for reserved seating.
