Floyd Mayweather is known as the best boxer in the world today, but it’s his violence outside of the ring that has him in the news lately. According to TMZ, Mayweather has been involved in a serious assault of his own employees over missing jewelry.
This is the except from TMZ Sports regarding sources close to the crime and the victims:
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ Sports … the two men had been hired to work on Floyd’s Vegas homes, but when jewelry went missing, Floyd pointed the finger at them.
We’re told the men claim they were contacted several weeks ago and instructed to meet Floyd at an off-site location.
When the men arrived, they claim Floyd was waiting for them — along with a number of his “people” – who proceeded to beat the living crap out of them with various weapons, including clubs.
Our sources say the attack was so brutal the men could have easily died. Both men had broken arms and legs and were hospitalized for several days.
Mayweather might be in some serious trouble if this allegation turns out to be true. One of the most successful boxers of our time, and easily the most famous since he had his first match in 1996, could be in jail after such an allegation.
It’s looking like these are purely accusations at this point, and the case is still very young. If proven to be true, more details of what happened could be released.
Floyd might be known for his copious amounts of money and 45-0 record in the ring, but he could soon be known for his mistreatment of his own employees.
