Floyd Mayweather fan Edder Angel Hernandez is a longtime fan of the champion and was suppose to meet the champ at the fight last Saturday night. Angel is a singer in the spanish singing group '2H' and has become terminally ill, with cancer, which has spreaded to his lungs. Sam Watson who works side by side with advisor Al Haymon, was contacted by the wife of Hernandez at the Mares/Gonzales fight and was asked if he could meet his idol, Floyd Maweather. "We were suppose to all meet up at the fight and everything we had tickets for the family an everything, said Watson to BoxingSocialist, but in the last 48hrs the kid took a turn for the worst and he couldn't make it out there, so she called me and said they couldn't make it can Floyd call them, and I said yeah no problem."
