Mayweather, Mosley Team Up For May 3 Fundraiser Event

Las Vegas - The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation (TFMJF) and Sugar Shane Mosley's Diamond's Love Foundation are proud to present "Spring of Style," a unique fundraising event in conjunction with the "Ring Kings: Mayweather vs. Cotto" mega-fight. "Spring of Style" will take place on Thursday, May 3 at 7:00 p.m. PT at the Talent Pool at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev., just two days before the biggest fight of 2012. The benefit will support the charitable work of both Mayweather and Mosley and the two future Hall of Famers' respective organizations and a local Las Vegas based charity.

"Spring of Style" will be a high-profile event offering a branded fashion preview along with entertainment. Tickets are on sale now and are priced at $75.00 (includes entry & hors d'oevres service) and $100.00 (includes entry, hors d'overes service, souvenir program book & open bar with pre-set menu). Tickets are available online at www.tfmjf.org . Event sponsors include Mayweather Promotions, Philthy Rich Records, Regal Management, Shane Mosley Promotions and Mr. & Ms. "T-shirt Lifestyle Brand."

"I am committed to giving back to the community and this fundraiser will assist my foundation's continued efforts to do so," said Mayweather. "Shane and I are both fighting for our careers in the ring, but we are blessed to be in a position to help those less fortunate and support causes outside the ring too. I know the entire boxing world will be in town for my fight and I expect a great turnout for the event."

Mayweather founded the TFMJF in 2007 and has ensured that the organization is dedicated to empowering and promoting the social development and advancement of struggling adults and adolescents. TFMJF's focuses on community health and wellness, economic growth and development and youth education.

Founded by the Mosley Family in 2010, Diamond's Love Foundation was formed to honor Diamond J. Johnson, Mosley's nephew. The organization is focused on implementing a child car seat safety program, establishing programs that assist single fathers raising their children, hold youth summer boxing camps nationwide and establish centers for at risk children.

"I am thrilled to be a part of this fight and have the opportunity to work with Floyd outside of the ring to support our charities," said Mosley. "We both feel strongly about helping at-risk youth so the two of us coming together to better the community is a great opportunity."

"Everyone who is in town for the weekend can buy a ticket to attend the event," said Mayweather. "Working together works and through the support of each and every one of us, something really positive can happen."
