Mayweather Hearing Delayed

courtfloyd Mayweather Hearing Delayed

Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s evidence hearing on a felony domestic violence case has  been moved. 

The 33-year-old professional fighter made a brief appearance in court with his lawyer, Karen Winckler.

Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa agreed to the postponement, which was requested because Mayweather’s lead defense attorney was not available.

Outside court, Mayweather declined comment about the case. He says he’d rather talk about feeding the homeless or something positive.

Mayweather’s accused of hitting and threatening his ex-girlfriend and threatening to beat two of their children during a pre-dawn argument at the woman’s home in September.

Mayweather’s lawyers have denied wrongdoing on his behalf. Mayweather could face up to 34 years in state prison if he’s convicted of all charges.

The boxer remains free on $31,000 bail in the case.
