According to a report from TMZ, a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Floyd Mayweather Sr., after an alleged altercation with a woman that took place September 17, 2017 following the huge boxing bout between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin.
Law enforcement sources state that Mayweather allegedly attacked a woman that night. According to the report, the alleged victim was heading toward Floyd’s car when an argument broke out between the two. Floyd allegedly told the woman to get out of the car, but she refused so he reached in and 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. Officials eventually charged Floyd with misdemeanor battery and on January 16, a warrant was issued for his arrest, according to court records.
TMZ says they spoke with Floyd Sr.’s rep who tells us 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.”
