American boxing legend, Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr, along with several other boxing legends, has been elected into the 2021 boxing hall of fame. The undefeated retired boxing legend who goes by the nickname of ‘Money’ was elected alongside fellow undefeated retired American boxer Andre ‘SOG’ Ward.
Floyd Mayweather retired in 2015 after a final fight with Andre Berto which he won over 12 rounds. He had earlier bagged a massive 12 round decision win over long time rival and fellow legend Manny Pacquaio, in a fight of the century bout. Floyd Mayweather however made a comeback in 2017 to take on UFC champion Connor McGregor who he knocked out in 10 rounds.
Andre Ward retired in 2017 after back to back wins against then undefeated light heavyweight champion Sergey ‘Krusher’ Kovalev. The second fight ended in a KO win for Ward. He has also starred in movies such as Creed.
Former Ukranian heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, was also part of the inductees. He ruled the heavyweight division as champion for over 10 years below losing his titles to British boxer Tyson Fury. He then retired after a failed attempt to regain his heavyweight titles in a highly popularized fight against current British heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
The inductees also included former female boxers Ann Wolfe and Laila Ali, daughter of the late boxing legend Mohammad Ali.
