Floyd Mayweather's private jet has landed in Tel Aviv carrying more then two tonnes of supplies for Israeli citizens and soldiers following Hamas's deadly terror attack.

The former professional boxing champion sent dozens of boxes to the Jewish state carrying food, water and bullet-proof vests, taking off from Los Angeles and stopping over in New York and London before arriving in Israel.

According to US entertainment site TMZ, the plane landed early on Sunday evening, bringing with it over 100 boxes full of necessities. The plane was reportedly loaded in LA by volunteers including Mayweather’s security team and friends.  

The same day his plane landed, Mayweather participated in a march for solidarity with Israel in LA, walking half a mile from Orthodox synagogue Young Israel of Century City to the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance alongside religious leaders, activists, and officials.  

The delivery came after Mayweather posted on Instagram to express his solidarity with Israel.

Last Monday, he said: “I stand with Israel against the Hamas terrorists. Hamas do not represent the people of Palestine but are a terrorist group that are attacking innocent lives!

“I stand for all humans and wish for the safe return of all Americans and Israelis and any human that were kidnapped as hostages during these horrific war crimes.

“This is not a time for politics. This is a time for safety first and foremost.”

A follow up message read: "I stand with Israel and Jews all around the world. I condemn antisemitism at all costs.

“I stand for Peace. I stand for Human Rights! Terrorism Is Never The Answer!"

Mayweather previously visited Israel in November 2022 for a match with British YouTuber Deji.
