Floyd Mayweather Jr. may have served two months in a detention center stemming from a domestic dispute recently, but it seems the 35-year-old undefeated boxer may have come close to landing himself into more trouble stemming from an altercation with his child's mother.
The Las Vegas Review Journal revealed that Las Vegas police responded to a 911 call after a woman claimed to have engaged in a "verbal altercation" with Mayweather. The publication reported that the police records indicated that the incident happened at 2 a.m. on Sept. 9 in the home of Melissa Brim, the mother of Mayweather's daughter who was reportedly engaged in previous domestic disputes with the boxer.
While the publication reported that Mayweather fled the scene after the verbal altercation, he also allegedly took an unidentified person's items from the home. However, the boxer reportedly had an associate return the items and charges were not pressed against the boxer. Mayweather is currently on probation following a previous domestic dispute with the mother of his other three children, Josie Harris.
In December, the boxer pleaded guilty to domestic battery and no contest to two counts of harassment which were misdemeanors that resulted in him serving two months in a Clark County detention center. Although his recent stint in a detention facility was not due to any encounters with Brim, she has allegedly been involved in disputes with the 35-year-old boxer.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Mayweather allegedly punched Brim in her face in 2001, which resulted in her calling the police. That same year, Mayweather reportedly struck his daughter's mother on the back of her neck in a mall prompting mall security to call authorities.
Mayweather reportedly pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery charges in 2002 and struck a plea agreement with prosecutors which led to a suspended jail sentence, community service, two days on house arrest and a $3,000 fine. His daughter's mother reportedly dropped the lawsuit against Mayweather in 2003.
While Mayweather was released from the Clark County correctional facility on good behavior recently, he seemed apprehensive before going to jail last June. The boxer admitted that his life was anything but easy in a New York Times report.
"My life has always been a roller-coaster ride," Mayweather said. "Seven in one bedroom. Mother on drugs. Father being shot. Dad going to prison. Never having a stable home."
Still, the boxer told the publication that he was thankful for his life.
"No one has a perfect life," Mayweather said. "I'm thankful."
