“I stand with Israel against the Hamas terrorists,” says the undefeated boxing champion, who visited Israel last November. Floyd Mayweather is putting his money where his mouth and heart is in the rapidly escalating war in Israel.

Hours after the undefeated boxing champion expressed support for Israel on social media Monday, Los Angeles exclusively learned that Mayweather is sending his private jet, Air Mayweather, to the Middle Eastern country to deliver food and other supplies, including bullet-proof vests, for Israeli Defense Force soldiers.

A rep for the professional fighter tells Los Angeles that the jet is being loaded for the flight this week, and is expected to arrive this weekend with “equipment that will be handed out personally by his pilots,” A.J.Ramey, Chris Javier, Sam Kniskern and Freeman Blakney — a roster featuring U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force veterans.

Mayweather, who visited Israel last November, wrote in an Instagram post Monday that he supports the embattled nation, and shared photos from the 2022 trip.

“I stand with Israel against the Hamas terrorists,” Mayweather wrote. “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. God Bless America. God Bless Israel. God Bless Human Kind!”

Mayweather is far from the only American celebrity to express support for Israel in the deadly conflict with the Hamas-led government of the Gaza Strip.

Pop icon Madonna posted horrific footage on her social media accounts of Israelis taken hostage in the surprise attack Saturday. “What is happening in Israel is devastating,” she wrote. “Watching all these families and especially children being herded, assaulted and murdered in the streets is Heartbreaking (sic).”

“My heart goes out to Israel,” she continued. “This Tragic (sic) attack will only cause more suffering for everyone.”

Natalie Portman, Andy Cohen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Debra Messing, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, Kris Jenner and Mark Hamill are also among the celebrities taking a public stand in support of Israel, as is California Governor Gavin Newsom.
