The boxing world suffered a tremendous loss last month, as former two-division world champion Roger “The Black Mamba” Mayweather passed away.

Mayweather, 58, had a tremendous professional career that saw him compile a 59-13 record with 35 KO’s, while also winning titles at junior welterweight and junior lightweight. Along the way he faced the likes of Julio Cesar Chavez, Rocky Lockridge, Freddie Pendleton, Pernell Whitaker, Vinny Pazienza, Livingston Bramble, Kostya Tszyu, and others.
