Floyd Mayweather comes under fire from UFC fighter following latest Israel trip

Floyd Mayweather, one of the greatest boxers of all time and easily the greatest to have graced the ring in the last three decades, has a boxing technique unlike anything the world has ever seen. His complete defensive style, known as ‘The Philly Shell’, allowed him to dominate all his opponents.

After seemingly finishing his professional career with an unbelievable 50-0 record, ‘Money’ Mayweather has participated in numerous exhibitions and states that he is not done, with rumors of a potential Pacquiao fight rumor lurking around as well.

Floyd Mayweather slammed over Israel visit

Amidst the war crisis going on in Israel, Floyd Mayweather decided to pay the country a visit. He toured throughout the country, paying visits to Tel Aviv, an Israel Defense Forces Base where he put on a barbeque party for the soldiers, and also to Jerusalem.

While the boxing icon was there, he decided to put on a boxing show for the distressed people there and lighten up their moods. He stepped in the ring himself against an Israeli boxer and showcased his skills for everyone to see.

However, Mayweather received criticism over his Israel visit, most notably from UFC fighter Muhammad Mokaev, who took to twitter and slammed Mayweather, citing all the things Muhammad Ali did for the world during his time and claiming that Floyd would never capture Ali’s place.

Throughout his career, Mayweather has often compared himself to Ali and received hate from fans every time. But regarding his visit to Israel, it is uncertain why both the fighter and fans decided to criticize Mayweather. Ali’s greatness, not only inside the ring but mainly outside of it, is valued so much that any fighter who even unintentionally imitates him gets slammed.

Floyd Mayweather known for his Israel sympathy

Ever since the brutal Hamas attack on October 7th, Floyd Mayweather has been one of the most active athletes in helping affected citizens of the war-torn country. He sent pounds of supplies to Israel in October before he chose to come to the country himself.

Mayweather recently put out a statement on the ongoing war in support of Israel, saying, “I stand with Israel against the Hamas terrorists. Hamas do not represent the people of Palestine but are a terrorist group that are attacking innocent lives! I stand for all humans and wish for the safe return of all Americans and Israelis and any human that were kidnapped as hostages during these horrific war crimes.”

Critics worldwide can choose to demean Mayweather any way they wish to, but it is certain that all his efforts have been appreciated to those who needed it the most and the country of Israel would happily welcome the boxing great grandly, any time he pays another visit.
