7 Jan

There is good and bad news for boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. won’t have to turn himself in to a Las Vegas jail until June 1, 2012 … so he can fight in Las Vegas on May 5th … the judge just ruled.

Floyd was supposed to turn himself in today to begin his 90-day sentence for beating up his baby mama, Josie Harrisafter pleading guilty to two counts of harrassment and one count of domestic violence — but his attorney had asked the judge to postpone the boxer’s turn-in date to June 1 … to give Floyd time to train for a massive fight on May 5th against an undetermined opponent at the MGM Grand.

His attorney’s justification … Floyd’s a pro who brings in hundreds of millions in profits for the city of Las Vegas — and hey, thing’s get rescheduled all the time … no bigs.

Several of Floyd’s famous friends came to court to support the boxer — including Ray J and Lil Kim who told media on their way out of court, they showed up for Floyd as an act of solidarity.

20 Aug

Its gonna be an ugly fight… but this one isn’t in the boxing ring; its in the courthouse.

Superstar boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr is being sued by Quincy Williams and Damien Bland for close to $200,000. The allegations are over a shooting that occurred in 2009 outside of a Las Vegas skating rink.

According to CityStarMusic, Williams had a falling out with the champ when he sent Mayweather a text message stating that he hoped he lost his next match. The undefeated champion took it very personal due to the fact that they were friends and worked together. They saw each other at a skating rink called Crystal Palace where Mayweather threatened William’s life. Mayweather ordered his bodyguard to shoot at William’s car and he hit defendant’s car 6 times.

 

Mayweather is being accused of battery and assault. The lawsuit also states that associates of Mayweather have been making threats to victims since the incident.  Quincy Williams and Damien Bland filed the lawsuit in the District Clark County Court in Nevada August 16, 2011.

Mayweather is scheduled to fight Victor Ortiz September 17, 2011
