Floyd Mayweather’s Boxing Prodigy Danny Gonzalez Has Died At The Age Of 22
Another young and upcoming star gone too soon. A 22-year-old boxing prodigy named Danny Gonzalez was shot and killed in Moreno Valley, California, just after 9 pm on Labor Day.
He died at the scene, while two minors that were with him suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds. They were taken to a local hospital.
Deputies secured the area as a crime scene and investigators from Moreno Valley Sheriff Station responded. The Central Homicide Unit also responded and assumed the investigation.
So yeah, the investigation is underway. No one knows what the motive was at this time, but hopefully more information is released.
Floyd Mayweather signed Gonzalez to Mayweather Promotions back in 2016 when Gonzalez was just 18-years-old.

Mayweather was still big on Gonzalez. He paid tribute to the late boxer on Instagram by posting a photo of himself and Gonzalez.
“R.I.P. champ. Gone but never forgotten,” he captioned the post.
Sad stuff. These shootings have to stop. It ain’t worth it. For everyone involved. You know the shooters feel like sh*t. On the run. It’s just not worth it.
You got beef? Settle it with your hands. Of course, they would have gotten their a** kicked if they tried that with Gonzalez.
