Recently, legendary boxer Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr made a controversial comment which got him into the limelight. Amidst the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict, the undefeated boxer showed his support for Israel via his Instagram account.
On October 10th, 2023 Mayweather shared a picture of himself in Jerusalem, Israel & the caption of the post made his stance on the situation pretty clear. “I stand with Israel against the Hamas terrorists,” said the former boxing champion. According to Floyd, Hamas is just a terrorist group & does not represent the citizens of Palestine.

“This is not a time for politics, this is a time for safety first and foremost,” adds Floyd Mayweather in his latest Instagram post. The ongoing conflict was started through a surprise assault on Gaza by the Hamas militant group.
Floyd Mayweather feels that the safety & security of innocent civilians should be the only priority. Mayweather will be sending his private jet, Air Mayweather to deliver food supplies & bullet-proof vests for the Israeli soldiers.

Just like Floyd claimed in his post, he stands for the sake of all humans & humanity. Floyd Mayweather is one among many celebrities to aid the Maui wildfire victims. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson & Oprhah Winfrey offered a donation of $10 million to the People’s Fund of Maui.
They announced the Maui relief fund which led to a backlash because the two wealthy celebs were asking people for financial help. The backlash led to Dwayne Johnson issuing an apology for his actions.
The Maui wildfires led to a lot of destruction, making it one of the deadliest wildfires in history. These wildfires started on August 8, 2023, & had the most impact on the town of Lahaina. UFC fighter & Hawaiian native, Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway got quite emotional due to the impact of these wildfires.
Floyd Mayweather wants Hamas to release the civilians and most of the people are supportive of him. But there are a few who feel that Floyd’s stance is incorrect due to the way Palestine has been treated for years by Israel.
What is your stance on this situation? Do you feel that Floyd Mayweather is correct? Are the reasons for this attack justifiable? Do let us know in the comments.
