An up-and-coming boxer has tragically died from his injuries after a shooting that left two others wounded.
In a press release, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office said Daniel Gonzalez, who was signed by Mayweather Promotions in 2016, was shot in Moreno County Monday night.
Deputies from the Moreno Valley Sheriff Station reacted to “a report of an assault with a lethal weapon,” and after arriving minutes later, “located three male victims with gunshot injuries.”
Mr Gonzalez, 22, “gave up to his wounds at the scene,” while the two other victims, who were minors, were “transported to a local hospital with lifeless threatening wounds.”
Since Gonzalez’s death, Floyd Mayweather revealed to fans about his loss, posting a photo of the two of them holding up Gonzalez’s contract on Instagram.
Mayweather, 43, wrote of Gonzalez in the caption of the photo, “R.I.P champ gone but never forgotten,” which shows Gonzalez wearing a Mayweather Boxing Club hat.
The investigation is recently ongoing, and it is uncertain at this time if any arrests have been in connection to the shooting.
