Floyd Mayweather Jr donated $100,000 to the Southern Nevada Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure on Wednesday, presenting the check at his gym in Las Vegas.
"I think the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization does a great job raising money for a cure for breast cancer," said Mayweather.
"I hope my donation allows them to continue to do this outstanding work."
Stephanie Kirby, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen for the Cure Southern Nevada Affiliate said of Mayweather's donation, "Yesterday, in a word, was overwhelming! The depth of that kind of generosity is not something people see all that often. Susan G. Komen for the Cure serves women and men in communities across the nation, and globally, who are uninsured and underinsured.
"For Floyd to recognize the need in our community and step forward to make a difference shows that he too believes in the vision of a world without breast cancer."
