Mayweather’s Remarkable Contributions

Amidst the aftermath of the terror attacks carried out by Hamas on October 7th, Mayweather demonstrated remarkable compassion and support for the people of Israel. He dispatched his Air Mayweather private jet, laden with over 5,000 lbs. of essential supplies, to Tel Aviv to aid both civilians and the military.
