Assault: Floyd Mayweather’s Dad Charged To Court For Punching A Woman
Floyd Mayweather Sr., father of retired boxer Floyd Mayweather, has been charged with misdemeanor battery and a warrant was issued for his arrest on January 16.
Mayweather Sr. was accused of attacking a woman after Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin fight in Las Vegas last September. The alleged incident reportedly took place in the early hours of September 17th, after an argument broke out between Mayweather Sr. and the alleged victim in his car.
According to TMZ Sports, Mayweather Sr. asked the woman who was heading towards his car to get out when the argument occurred and when she refused, he dragged her out by the leg.
65-year-old Floyd allegedly made things worse by punching her in the leg once she was out of the car. The accuser claims Floyd then got in the driver’s seat and sped off without her.
The woman was hospitalized for minor injuries. Floyd Sr.’s rep however says the alleged victim is “trying to extort money and she’s angry because she’s not getting the money from Floyd. It’s not going the way she wants it to go.”
