This Year’s Floyd Mayweather Fight-Day Tradition Marks
6th Installment of the Semi-Annual Celebration
Las Vegas (September 8) – Mayweather Promotions will bring together professionals from across the sports and entertainment industry on Saturday, September 12 for another installment of the Titans of the Trade: Breakfast of Champions. A Floyd Mayweather fight-day tradition, the semi-annual breakfast aims to create a strong rapport among diverse professionals in the industry and honor those who have contributed to positively to advancing women in the field. Titans of the Trade: Breakfast of Champions will take place at MGM Grand Convention Center and tickets are available for purchase at here.
The event kicks off an exciting day of boxing as Floyd Mayweather will step into the ring for the final time that evening as he takes on Andre Berto at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The Titans of the Trade: Breakfast of Champions supports a strong community of professionals who aspire to positively impact the sports and entertainment industry. In bringing together a large group of highly influential individuals on one of the biggest days in boxing, peers and colleagues are able to share stories, network and celebrate each other’s successes.
This year, the Titans of the Trade Committee is thrilled to present awards to honor the following recipients:
Dr. Jen Welter will be honored with the Titans of the Trade award, as she has made history by becoming the first female coach in the National Football League (NFL). She is currently a camp/preseason inside linebacker coach for the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals.
Deborah Sinclair will be presented with the Golden Glove Award. She is the proud mother of 12-time world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather and two daughters Deltricia and Fannie. From the often-difficult circumstances surrounding her family in their native Grand Rapids, MI, to living a fulfilling life in Las Vegas, Ms. Sinclair encouraged all of her children to rise above their circumstances and strive for the best life possible. Mayweather often attributes his extraordinarily successful career to his mother and her message.
Patrica Jarman will receive the Meritorious Award for her contributions to the boxing industry as a judge, amongst many other accomplishments. She is currently an International Boxing Judge, having presided over 130 title bouts around the world including UFC, Muay Thai, Big Knockout Boxing and Glory Kick Boxing fights. On Saturday, September 12, Jarman will judge the highly anticipated rematch between Orlando Salido and Roman “Rocky” Martinez, which will appear on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Andre Berto undercard.
A portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated to The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation’s Advancement of Women in Sports and Entertainment Scholarship. Visit: www.tfmjf.org/scholarships for more information.
