Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. has plenty to be thankful for, and now he’s giving back to the less fortunate. Mayweather hosted the 8th annual celebrity basketball game and toy drive in Los Angeles. The event was put on by Professional Athletes LLC in conjunction with Team Watson and Mayweather Promotions. The event raised over $10,0000 in funds and collected over $6,000 worth of toys.
“I am in a comfortable position to give back and support positive events such as the Watson Family Celebrity Basketball Classic, I just ask that you all continue to support boxing and positive events such as these”, said Floyd Mayweather.
Some of the celebrities in attendance included: Adrian Broner, Sugar Shane Mosley, Comedian D’Ray Davis, Lance Gross, R&B singer Tank, Ray-Jay, Guy Torre, Brandi Garcia, and many more.
The Watson Christmas Classic is a charity event which raises funds and awareness for organizations that serve the less fortunate in South Central Los Angeles. This year’s Watson Classic benefited Fight for a Cause Foundation and D Best Limousine service.
