Floyd Mayweather Jr. (born as Floyd Sinclair; Grand Rapids, February 24, 1977) is an American professional boxer. He won three times the national Golden Gloves and Bronze at the 1996 Olympic Games. Mayweather has won his fifty performances as a professional player and has been world champion in five different weight classes.
After a break of sixteen months he made a successful comeback. The controversial American was in charge of landlord Victor Ortiz on September 18, 2011 in Las Vegas with a knockout in the fourth round. That gave him the world title (WBC) in the welterweight.
The knockout against Ortiz led to quite a stir in the boxing world, because he followed shortly after Ortiz had handed a headstroke to his challenger. The arbiter ordered a break in which both boxers had to reconcile. Ortiz hugged Mayweather, kissed him on the cheek and both boxers pushed the gloves against each other. Immediately after that, Ortiz had his hands down, Mayweather shared a left-hand corner followed by a right-handed Ortiz against the canvas.
In 2017, UFC Champion Connor McGregor challenged him for a fight won by Mayweather in the 10th round on TKO.
