On May 2nd 2015, what was called the Fight of the Century was set to take place. The whole world was eager to watch the battle between Pacman and Mayweather. They were both boxing champions and were to finally show the world who was the better fighter among them both. Unsurprisingly, Floyd was the winning man in this battle and he remains undefeated even after about 50 fights.
Date of Birth: February 24, 1977
Zodiac Sign: Pisces
Little Floyd at the age of 7 was fitted for his first pair of boxing gloves. “Pretty Boy” Floyd was soon known in the neighbourhood as a gym staple. He was unarguably made for the rings as he won a number of awards even before the start of a professional career. Mayweather Jr. was raised in a highly dysfunctional family but had succeeded in making a name for himself. Family wise, he never got married but is a father to four kids from two women. You’ll be interested in reading all we found out about his parents, siblings, relationships and kids. Read on to find out…
Floyd Mayweather Sr. (father)
Date of Birth: October 19, 1952
Zodiac Sign: Libra
The Mayweather family is a complicated one however with his father having a violent temper and drifting in and out of drugs. In 1978, Floyd Sr. was shot while holding up his celebrity son as a “gun shield”; years later he ran prison term for cocaine trafficking. For five years, Big Floyd was separated from his son only to return and become his amateur son’s trainer. The welterweight Mayweather is credited for teaching his son the defensive skills that have made him a champion today.
Big Floyd is a boxer who eventually became a trainer and because of him, his son developed a big interest in the sports. Mayweather Sr. tells how he made his famous son get involved in throwing punches even before he started walking or talking. This is quite an impressive move as a father but Papa Floyd can take no glory for who his son has become today. His father would be happy if his other siblings would be as successful as the undefeated champion just that they are not ready to put in half as much work as it takes.
Deborah Sinclair (mother)
She is the mother of the pound for pound boxing king. Like her husband, she also had her own share of substance abuse leaving their family all the more wild. They never had Christmas but Deborah who was a crack addict always tried to steal presents for her son. Money May now calls his mum his wife and is very committed to looking after her. Because he has a mother whom he loves so much, Mayweather sees no reason to get married. He certainly does not need another woman in his life.
Justin Mayweather Jones (half-brother)
Date of Birth: April 21, 1987
Zodiac Sign: Taurus
Since he was a child, he was drawn to boxing. Mike Tyson was his ultimate god in the sports and he had no idea who his birth father was. People always told him he looked like a Mayweather and he finally decided to find out the truth with a DNA analysis. The test was positive and that was how a 16 year old boxing amateur was reunited with his birth family. Since the discovery, Big Floyd has taken over the training of his son. Who knows if he would be another Mayweather champion?
Mayweather also has three sisters; Fannie Orr, Deltricia Tawanna Howard and Fatimah Mayweather. All three girls live a private life and there’s not much to know about them. They share a close bond with their famous brother however and this adds to the reason why he chooses to remain unmarried; so many women in his life already.
Deltricia Tawanna Howard
Josie Harris (ex-girlfriend)
Duration of Relationship: 1993 – 2007
Date of Birth: January 17, 1980
Zodiac Sign: Capricorn
As was mentioned earlier, Mayweather never made it down the aisle but has been engaged to a couple of women. Harris stands out as she started as his high school sweetheart. They have been together the longest and … wait for it, they have three kids together. They got engaged at some point in 2005 but never made it to a wedding. The retired professional boxer is known to be a woman beater and was once jailed for this. Their on and off relationship finally came to an end after 14 years as Josie could not take any more domestic abuse.
Melissa Brim (ex-girlfriend)
Duration of Relationship: 1998 – 2012
As Floyd was switching back and forth from break ups to make ups with Harris, he was also shacking up with Melissa. They have a daughter together but as expected never made t down the aisle. Mayweather is an avid example of the leopard that doesn’t change his spots as he also was abusive with Brim both verbally and physically.
Koraun Mayweather (son with Josie Harris)
Date of Birth: January 29, 2000
Zodiac Sign: Aquarius
He is the oldest child to the undefeated champion and while the whole world sees his dad as a boxing phenomenon, Koraun sees Floyd as a “coward”. This is because Mayweather refused to come clean after his son was an eye witness while Josie was once pummelled by Money May in 2010. He also claims to find boxing boring!
Iyanna Mayweather (daughter with Melissa Brim)
Date of Birth: May 20, 2000

She has spent time training with her dad and has been on the receiving end of her father’s highly generous gifts.
