Legendary boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. received the Champion of Israel award at the American Friends of Magen David Adom Gala in Miami this week.

A 15-time world champion and boxing promoter, Mayweather generously supported Magen David Adom, Israel’s emergency medical service, following the October 7 Hamas attacks, including sending his personal airplane to Israel with supplies for those wounded and displaced, and emerging as a vocal advocate for the Jewish people during the recent rise in worldwide antisemitic incidents.
