Undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., along with Airman First Class Sharif Omar, Senior Airman Christopher Latson and Airman First Class Alysa Hill, posed for a photo outside of his Las Vegas Boxing Gym Thursday (Jun 11) in honor of Flag Day.
“I represented this country in the 1996 Olympic games. When I received a bronze medal, there was nothing like standing up there and holding the American flag,” said Mayweather Jr., whose acrylic American flag sticker on the windows to his gym read: “Mayweather’s America.”
“Flag Day means so much to so many people, it just represents so much. Everybody’s got a flag. Maybe one day I’ll have a Floyd Mayweather flag (covering the gym),” Mayweather joked before turning back to a serious note.
“I’m just proud to be an American. It’s truly a blessing.”
Mayweather, who currently holds a 39-zip record (with 25 KOs) will come out of retirement on July 18th when he fights Juan Manuel Marquez.
