Who are Floyd Mayweather Jr. parents?
Floyd Mayweather Sr. (father)
Date of birth: October 19, 1952
It’s not a secret, that Floyd Mayweather Sr. played a serious part in his son’s super successful career. He was Floyd Jr’s manager and trainer. In addition, he was the person, who introduced Mayweather Jr to box. He made his son successful and popular in spite of the fact that Mayweather Sr’s career wasn’t so enviable.
Floyd Mayweather Sr was born in 1952 in Amory, MS. His parents Theartha and Bernice Mayweather had never gone to college. But they gave a birth to 9 kids and three of them (Floyd, Roger and Jeff) became boxers.
Floyd Sr lived in poverty. His father left the family, when Floyd was still a kid. In fact, he didn’t know Theartha properly as they met very rarely. But Floyd remembers the time, when his dad came to his kids with $100 in his pocket and spent it for his sons. Then they supposed their father was rich as Croesus. Theartha died in 2009, and his popular grandson Floyd Jr gave money for his funeral, although they had never been close.
Floyd Sr left his mother’s home at the age of 19. He moved to Las Vegas and decided to become a successful boxer there. Mayweather Sr achieved some titles in this area – he had become the U.S. Champion in 1977. In general, he won 28 fights from 35.
Box was an important part of Floyd Sr’s life. But he understood that it was hard to provide his kids for everything, being just a pro boxer. In fact, Floyd Mayweather Sr was a good athlete, but not s superstar, so his payments for boxing had never been high. To make the ends meet, he started to sell cocaine. In 1992 Floyd Sr was arrested and sentenced to 5 years in jail for drug trafficking. Thus, he had to leave the post of his son’s manager and trainer.
By the way, Floyd Sr liked to spend time with his son. As Bernice Mayweather, Floyd Jr’s grandmother, recalled in her interview, her son Floyd gave Mayweather Jr boxing gloves, when the boy was still a toddler. After that he coached his son regularly – took him to gym, trained him at home and made him run several miles per day.
It was Floyd Sr, who helped his son build his body. Nevertheless, Floyd Jr opened up, that his childhood was awful. His dad had never taken him for a walk to the park or to watch the new film in the cinema. The only thing they did, when they were together – they were boxing.
When Floyd Sr was arrested, his son turned 15. That time the boy became completely independent. He lived with his grandmother Bernice, who was a cleaning woman. She was busy at work. Floyd Jr missed his lessons at school and went to gym. He trained for hours and had a serious intention to become a professional boxer. Around that time his uncle Roger, who was a famous boxer himself, started to supervise him.
When Floyd Sr returned from jail, he started to train his son Floyd and manage his career. For that work he got 10% of son’s income. In late 1990s Floyd Jr has already become a rising star in box. His father helped his son to sign the right deals and to communicate with press. In 1998 the popular sports magazine “Ring” named Floyd Mayweather “the best manager of the year”. But in early 2000s a father and a son parted their ways.
Around that time Mayweather Jr met James Prince. James arranged rap concerts and dreamed to start career of a boxing manager. He convinced Floyd Jr to sign the deal with him. Thus, Floyd Sr lost his position of the son’s manager. The loud scandal between two Floyds ended with a disaster. Floyd Jr threw his father out of his Las Vegas house and even took his father’s minibus.
They reconciled just in 2009. Then Floyd Mayweather Sr started to see his son again. Mayweather Sr lost about 20 pounds because of sarcoidosis – a lung illness. His son felt pity for him. They swam in the pool together, talked a lot and soon Floyd Sr became his son’s coach again.
Nowadays Floyd Sr stays in touch with his famous son. They are friends in spite all contradictions between them.
Deborah Sinclair (mother)
Deborah Sinclair stays out of limelight, that’s why not a lot is known about her.
She met Floyd Mayweather Sr at a very young age. It’s not proved, but probably, they were not even married officially, because their son Floyd was registered under his mother’s name at first. The future boxing legend born name was Floyd Joy Sinclair, but at the age of 10 he changed it for Mayweather.
Deborah Sinclair was incredibly poor. She did numerous odd jobs to feed her son and daughters (Floyd has three sisters), but that was not enough and Floyd’s childhood was really poor. In addition, Deborah used drugs, and very often she couldn’t care about her kids, been all drugged up.
In spite of the fact that the future sports star Floyd lived in a small room together with his sisters and very often they had to stay in the darkness, because electricity was disconnected for non-payment, he loved his mother. From time to time Deborah tried to provide her kids for happy childhood. When she was lack of money, she stole toys in the shops to present them to her son and daughters for Christmas.
Nowadays Deborah doesn’t need to work. She lives in the huge mansion in Las Vegas, registered on her son’s name. “I care about her”, Floyd Mayweather tells.
