The death of the Minnesotan at the hands of Minneapolis police officers has sparked police brutality and Black Lives Matter protests in more than 40 American cities across the country.

AceShowbiz - Boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has offered to pay for George Floyd's funeral services.

The tragic Minnesotan was killed during a police arrest a week ago (May 25) and now the fighter has pledged to cover the costs of memorial services in Houston, Minneapolis, and Charlotte.

A fourth location is to be named at a later date, according to TMZ Sports.

Mayweather has a link to the deceased - Anzel Jennings, the CEO of his TMT music label, grew up with Floyd.

Police brutality and Black Lives Matter protests hit more than 40 American cities over the weekend in light of Floyd's death at the hands of four white Minneapolis cops, and some turned violent with mayors of Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, and Miami issuing extensive curfews to keep people off the streets.

Several curfews are still in effect for Monday evening.
