Floyd Mayweather's charitable blitz continues. And it's a good bet little Austin York of Gardnerville, Nevada, an 11 month old baby who was born with a severe heart defect, and his family, are mighty glad the skilled boxer has been for the last few months very active in the giving arena.
Mayweather Promotions' David Levi alerted us to the good deed Mayweather did. I give him the floor for a spell.
Levi tells us that both the ventricles of little Austin's heart didn't function when he was born, on May 23, 2011. He had surgery in the first week of his life, and then another six months later. He had another surgery, to total three, not long after that.
Quite a bit of fighting that little guy has had to do. I can only imagine the worry his family has to deal with. Compound that with the panic that can come with crushing medical bills, well, you can bet that the York family, including parents Scott York and Meghan Adams, will be rooting hard for Floyd on May 5, when he meets Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas.
Yeah, that's a big fight, but can we all agree not nearly as big as the fight Austin York and family have been in this last year?
