Among those touched by the execution-style slaying of NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia was boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, who took time off his promotion tour to honor the murdered mother.


The undefeated boxing champ paid a visit to the Bronx’s 46 Precinct, where he posed Saturday with a picture of the popular police officer.


The picture was posted on the Twitter account of a former FDNY paramedic, and retweeted by the precinct.

The gunman, Alexander Bonds, 32, was shot and killed by responding police officers.


Mayweather’s visit followed a zany four-city press tour with Ultimate Fighting Championship star Conor McGregor to promote their Aug. 26 fight in Las Vegas.
