According to a report by Dailymail, Floyd Mayweather, the former heavyweight boxing champion, has made a claim that he witnessed the death of the American rapper Tupac Shakur.
The report suggests that new footage has emerged showing moments before Tupac’s death in 1996.
The footage, allegedly from 2014, features Mayweather explaining that he was staying across the road from where the rapper was fatally shot.
Tupac was killed in Las Vegas when his car was ambushed, and he succumbed to his injuries six days later after being struck by four bullets.
Dailymail reports that in the clip, Mayweather says: ‘The car pulled right here and shot Tupac at this light. The car went that way.
‘I was living right here [gesturing across the intersection] in 1996 when Tupac got killed, I ain’t ever told nobody. Only the closest people with me know.’
The death of Tupac has remained a mystery for many years, and investigations have been ongoing for decades without any resolution.
Footage has also recently been released by The Walter J. Brown Media Archives showing Shakur conversing with a crowd on a sidewalk shortly before he was shot.
