Friday at the Mayweather Gym in Las Vegas, Louis Raposo, a boxing gym owner from Calgary, Canada presented trainer/former world champ Roger Mayweather with a painting of Floyd “Money” Mayweather. One of Raposo’s students known as A.J. painted it. Roger loved the painting and is going to have it framed to hang in his home but he quickly confessed (laughing) that when his nephew Floyd sees it he will take it.

Raposo’s gym, Impact Boxing & Fitness (www.impactboxingandfitness.com) located in Calgary sustained over $100,000 in damage from the last flood., he said that he is trying to rebuild the gym where he trains many unprivileged & troubled youths.
