Floyd is known for his tough demeanor and character, but the recent death of two of his closest relatives has brought out a vulnerable side of him.

The father of three took to his Instagram to upload a video during which he revealed that he is still dealing with the death of his ex-girlfriend and his uncle.

He said great things about them and explained that his lack of an earlier response to the current global crisis was due to his recent loss.

Mayweather is planning help people who do not have much amid the devastating pandemic, but he will be doing it behind closed doors as he believes only God has to know about his good deeds. He talked about how the situation is impacting him:

"I'm affected by this. It hurts to see what the world is going through. But I want us to stick together and keep believing..."

The boxer is still willing to help other families even though his family is going through a tough time. His uncle and ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, died just days apart.

Josie was found dead in her car at her home in Valencia in March. Her case is not being treated as a murder investigation.

His uncle, Roger Mayweather, was his trainer who Floyd saw as a father figure.

Although they share three kids, their relationship was a rocky one, during which Josie claimed that Floyd physically harassed her on different occasions.

He was jailed for two months after being convicted back in 2010, which was the year their 15-year relationship came to an end. Although they had problems the 43-year-old boxer had good things to say about her:

"...she was a significant other, a great woman, a great person."

His uncle, Roger Mayweather, was his trainer who Floyd saw as a father figure. Roger died at 58, after battling health issues for a while.

Roger Mayweather was a successful boxer himself, and he became the world champion for two weights before he started training Floyd.

He has a record of 59-13 and 35 knockouts in the ring. His boxing career took off in 1981 and continued for 18 glorious years. He won titles under the 130 and 140 pounds weight categories.
