Floyd Mayweather Jr. is proving to be a champion both inside and out of the ring.
Mayweather released a statement via Twitter saying that he would be paying for the funeral costs of boxing legend "Smokin" Joe Frazier.
Frazier, who famously fought three epic bouts against Muhammad Ali, died of liver cancer Monday (November 7).
Fox Sports is reporting that this is the second time this year Mayweather has assisted in helping cover the cost of a boxer. He paid for the funeral of former opponent Genaro Hernandez, who died from cancer at age 45 earlier this year as well.
