According to a report by TMZ, current world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. was allegedly involved in a savage beating on two former employees whom he suspected of stealing jewellery from him.
The 37 year-old, who is set to face Argentine WBA welterweight title holder Marcos Maidana on May 3 in Las Vegas, is said to have pointed the finger at the men, who worked at his home, after noticing some of his possessions were missing.
Both were ordered to a secret location to meet Mayweather, who confronted the pair with a number of his ‘people’ who then set about beating the duo badly with clubs and other instruments, says the story released today.
Although Mayweather was named as playing any part in the assualt, broken legs and arms were said to have been suffered by the men, who have since pleaded their innocence of any wrong-doing and drafted in lawyers to advise on what course of action to take next.
P4P king Mayweather was jailed for three months for assaulting his ex-partner in 2012 and could conceivably be looking at a far greater sentence should any charges be brought against him from these latest accusations.
Mayweather is yet to comment on the situation as it stands on what was described by one source TMZ as a ‘Breaking Bad’ style attack.
