A new report reveals that a warrant has been issued for Floyd Mayweather Sr. after an alleged fight with an unknown woman in September. The TMZ report says that following the Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennaday Golovkin boxing match in Las Vegas this past fall, Mayweather Sr. got into an altercation with a woman outside the T-Mobile arena. The woman is alleged to have tried to force her way into Mayweather Sr.’s car, but he was not having it.
An argument ensued and the 65-year-old boxing trainer and father of the recently retired Floyd Mayweather Jr. allegedly pulled the woman out of his car, and punched her in the leg before speeding off leaving her stranded. The report does not say whether or not the woman came to the event that night with Mayweather Sr.
The victim is said to have been hospitalized from the incident with minor injuries and on January 11. She filed a complaint against the legendary trainer. Following her report, on January 16 the warrant was issued for Mayweather Sr. on misdemeanor charges.
Mayweather is denying any and all claims against him in this case. TMZ got in touch with a representative of Mayweather Sr. who said the woman 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.”
There is no word on whether the former welterweight boxer will turn himself in to authorities any time soon, but with the charges seeming to be minor, at least for now, it is fully expected that Mayweather Sr. will fully cooperate with police in solving this matter.
