Floyd Mayweather Sr. was charged with battery last week for an incident that took place after the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight on Sept. 17, 2017, according to Clark County court records. An arrest warrant was issued on Jan. 16; he turned himself in today and pleaded not guilty.
Mayweather Sr. got into an argument with a woman after the fight; he then dragged her out of the car and punched her in the leg, according to TMZ. Mayweather Sr.’s lawyers accused the victim, who was apparently hospitalized, of “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.” A bench trial has been set for March 27.
Mayweather Sr.’s battery charge is not to be confused with the battery convictions his son Floyd Mayweather Jr. has for beating women.
