Roger Mayweather, a former world champion boxer and trainer for his nephew Floyd Mayweather Jr., died at the age of 58.
Roger meant the world to me, my father Floyd Sr., my uncle Jeff, everyone in and around the Mayweather Boxing Gym and the entire boxing world.
TMZ Sports noted "Roger had been in declining health for years," something that Mayweather Jr. attributed to his long boxing career.
According to Cassandra Negley of Yahoo Sports, Roger Mayweather won 59 of his 72 fights and won the WBA and lineal super featherweight titles in 1983, as well as the WBC light welterweight title in 1987.
