Roger Mayweather no longer missing, gym trainer states
Floyd Mayweather Jr’s uncle, Roger Mayweather has been found safe and well following an alert by police in Las Vegas, a trainer at his Nevada gym has stated.
According to KTNV, Mayweather is okay following after a missing persons report was filed due to the trainer not being seen since Saturday morning in an area close to Spring Mountain Road and Valley View Boulevard.
The 55 year-old, who is a prominent member of the Mayweather Boxing Club Gym in Nevada, has been suffering ill health for the past few years and has not trained his nephew full-time since 2013.
Police raised the alarm on Sunday stating Mayweather was last seen wearing white t-shirt, blue sweatpants and white trainers and more worryingly had none of his prescription medication to hand.
Retiring from fighting in 1999, Mayweather has shared the ring with the likes of former world champions Julio Cesar Chavez, Pernell Whitaker, Vinny Pazienza and Kostya Tszyu.
‘The Black Mamba’ boasted a 59-13 C.V in the sport having made his debut back in 1981 and enjoyed a lengthy career.
Once his punching days were over, Mayweather helped Floyd Jr. become one of the most gifted fighters of his generation but was forced to stand down as coach due to his ongoing health problems.
