Las Vegas - Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has made good on a promise to a Nevada judge to donate $100 000 to a breast cancer support organization.

The undefeated fighter gave the money on Wednesday to officials from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure research and support foundation. The presentation was made during a news event at his gym in Las Vegas.
