The 44-year-old retired boxer won 15 major titles throughout his career, which ended with an undefeated record of 50-0.
During a confrontation with Conor McGregor in 2017, Mayweather used a homophobic slur after accusing McGregor of racism.
“You punk. You faggot. You ho,” he said, to which he subsequently apologised. “I spoke on disrespect,” he said.
“Like I said before, it’s certain boundaries we just don’t cross. It’s OK if he wants to say certain things. Even in the press tour when I said something, I didn’t want to be negative towards lesbians or gays when I said something to him. So, I apologise.”
