Floyd Mayweather Receives Champion for Israel Award

In a ceremony on the roof of the Dan Family Aish World Center in Jerusalem on Monday night, March 11, renowned boxer Floyd Mayweather was presented with the Champion For Israel Award for his advocacy against hate and antisemitism and his support for Israel.

The ceremony was one of Mayweather’s first stops on his itinerary during his current trip to Israel which is aimed at further strengthening his connection with the country and its people.

During the visit, Mayweather, who was dressed wearing a hat and necklace each with a Star of David, met with students currently studying at Aish and joined them in celebrating the Jewish month of Adar, and even sang some songs in Hebrew, surprising the crowd who responded with exuberant cheers.

Mayweather expressed his excitement during the visit, stating, “Aish has welcomed me and my team in Jerusalem before, and it is very exciting to be back. This place is amazing. Everyone should come and visit here.” The boxing champion had previously visited Aish in November 2022.

Mayweather’s visit to Israel comes at a time when antisemitism is on the rise, particularly in the United States. When asked about his thoughts on this concerning trend, the boxing champion shared a powerful message of positivity and proactivity.

“Everybody needs to stay positive and think positive and be proactive in a respectful manner, no matter what. Use your voice, and all means available to stand up for what’s right and stand up against hate,” Mayweather responded. (INN / VFI News)
