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.

But Mayweather also left his mark as a trainer, most notably due to his work with his nephew, five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather. Anyone who has seen Roger and Floyd work the mitts knows all too well just how harmonious they were when they really went to work.

Roger’s legacy is one that will live on many years, from his willingness to work with so many young pupils, to his extraordinary fighting career, and everything that he gave as a trainer. Many trainers today have even mentioned just how much Roger influenced their style over the years.

We were fortunate enough to be around Roger for several years in Las Vegas and pulled up some of our most memorable images.
