    LAS VEGAS (August 19, 2014) - Mayweather Promotions, The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation and the rising stars fighting under the Mayweather Promotions banner held a "Back To School Giveaway" on Saturday, giving away hundreds of school supplies for children in the Las Vegas area as the summer comes to a close and families prepare for the school season.





    The event, held at the Mayweather Boxing Club, was hosted by several fighters, Mayweather Promotions staff and volunteers who gave away 500 backpacks filled with grade appropriate school supplies. They also raffled off other supplies including five laptops, plus a donation of five desktop computers to the Clark County School District's after school program.
    Boxers in attendance included former world champion Ishe Smith and lightweight contender Mickey Bey, who fights Miguel Vazquez for his IBF Lightweight World Title on the undercard of "MAYHEM: Mayweather vs. Maidana 2."
    Also in attendance were J'Leon Love, Badou Jack,Ladarius Miller, Andrew Tabiti, Ashley Theophane, Lanell Bellows and Luis Arias, all of whom will be fighting on August 30 in Las Vegas at the Pearl at the Palms Resort and Casino.
    "We relish this opportunity to give back to children and families in the Las Vegas community," said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. "This is our community and putting on these kind of events is what Mayweather Promotions is all about."
    "I'm really blessed to be in a position to help these kids. It's great that Mayweather Promotions is a company that stays so dedicated to improving the community," said the undefeated super middleweight contender Love.
    Children were also treated to fighter autographs, a live-DJ and free haircuts amongst other prizes and entertainment.

    With JayZ's forray into the boxing promoters business I expect all aspiring and practicing promoters to step up and be counted over the next 12months.

    But still, its a Good promotional gimmick by Mayweather Promotions regardless of the underlying motives...whether if its for publicity, a tax write off.....or if he's doing it from the goodness of his heart , ..... People are still being helped.

    This give away is coming from the heart of Money May. He has been doing it for near 20 years. Boxing news is apparently having some slow times. Money May's businesses are doing the same in his home state and other areas. Holla.

    We should be proud of $$$May for doing this. I don't see many other high-profile, big name athletes stepping up and doing this kind of thing.

    It's stories like this that truly make me proud to be involved in the sport of boxing.

    There are many "high-profile, big name athletes" doing this throughout the USA mainland and the world. Mad props go to Money May regardless though. Holla!

    Well done, keep it up and make it known this is what is EXPECTED out of a multimillionaire athlete. We all need to do our part whether you are making 40g a year or 40 million a fight. A little here and there can help more than most people realize.
