NBA YoungBoy’s son KJ has a very famous grandfather. One of Youngboy’s 11 kids, KJ was born to Yaya Mayweather. She, in turn, is the daughter of Floyd Mayweather, one of the greatest boxers to ever fight. Over a 21-year career, Mayweather went 50-0 in professional bouts. Furthermore, Mayweather won belts in six different weight classes. Mayweather is also 3-0 with one no-contest in scored exhibition bouts.
However, YoungBoy appears to share a contentious relationship with the Mayweather family. After the sister of MMA fighter John Gotti III threatened Yaya following the chaotic fighter between Gotti III and Floyd, YoungBoy appeared to side with the Gottis. “I hate that hoe,” YoungBoy said in a response video to the Gottis, encouraging them to go after Yaya. Furthermore, YoungBoy said he “idolized” Nicole Gotti’s father, John A. Gotti. Gotti ran the Gambino Crime Family between 1991 and 1999. However, YoungBoy might want to watch his back as Yaya might be raising another boxer.
