Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has offered to pay for funeral expenses of late George Floyd who recently died in America following assault from the police who arrested him.

Floyd Mayweather's company confirmed this on social media in which the family of the deceased have also accepted the gesture from the retired boxer who has made so much money in boxing.

The 43-year-old Mayweather is said to have been so frustrated with the ways George Floyd lost his life in the hands of the police who refused to allow him stand on the ground.

Americans and many parts of the world are currently angry and sad with how police tortured George Floyd until he passed on.

In the video which has been circulating online, it can been seen that a policeman kneeled on George Floyd's neck where he was shouting for help.

The police out of their wickedness were nonchalant about George Floyd's pleas that he was unable to breath in which he later died on the spot.

Protesters have been demonstrating in America demanding for justice in which the police who kneeled on George's neck has been sacked and arrested.

Sports icons like Michael Jordan and Tiger Wood have also made their frustration known to the death of George Floyd.

Earlier, it was reported how Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram joined other stars to pay tribute to late George Floyd, an American man who died in the hands of the police.

The moving moment came after Thuran found the back of the net in the first half of his side's Bundesliga meeting against Union Berlin.

In his celebration, the French striker knelt down to his knees and blew his head in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter initiative.

His gesture came amid widespread protests across the US demanding for justice over the death of Floyd.

Floyd had a knee pressed on his neck by a police officer while being detained in Minneapolis last Monday, May 25.

In another report, Dorothy Jean Dandridge was the first black actress to rise to fame and earn an Oscar nomination but sadly, she lost all her wealth and worth by the time she passed.

A report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Face2FaceAfrica indicates that Dandridge earned the nomination for an Academy Award as best actress in the 1954 film Carmen Jones, becoming the first black woman to achieve the feat.

Prior to that, the renowned actress who grew up never meeting her father, was part of The Wonder Children, later The Dandridge Sisters, before finding fame and performing as a vocalist at the Cotton Club and the Apollo Theater.
