Arriving in Tel Aviv, Mayweather not only brought with him thousands of pounds of supplies but also personally engaged with Israeli soldiers, rescue workers, and civilians.

During his visit, Mayweather toured various locations, including an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) base, where he organized a barbecue event for military personnel.

Known for his boxing prowess, Mayweather even sparred with some IDF members in a boxing ring set up at the base.

In addition to his visit to the IDF base, Mayweather also stopped by the headquarters of United Hatzalah, an ambulatory service, and the Magen David Adom blood bank in Jerusalem.

He also took time to visit the Western Wall, a significant holy site in Jerusalem, where he prayed for peace.

During his stay, Mayweather received several gifts, including a custom TMT (The Money Team) kippah from Rabbi Steven Burg and a Star of David necklace pendant from Diamond Club Miami.

He was also presented with a unique painting by Israeli musician Osher Cohen.

Despite the already impactful nature of his visit, Mayweather’s trip to Israel is not yet concluded, indicating further engagement and support from the boxing icon.
