Floyd Mayweather Jr. came out in support of NBA star Kyrie Irving who was banned from all games after refusing the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

The semi-retired boxing legend says he hopes Irving will inspire others to join him.

Kyrie, what's up? I know you're going through a lot," Mayweather said in a video shared on Twitter on Monday. Mayweather captioned the video:

"Choice is defined as an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities. America gave us the choice to take the vaccine or not take the vaccine. As time moves on, that choice is gradually being stripped from us."
