Mayweather Trial Delay In Guard Scuffle Case
Floyd Mayweather Jr. won’t face trial until at least April on a misdemeanor charge in a November scuffle with a security guard outside Mayweather’s home.
The 33-year-old boxer didn’t appear in court while a judge agreed to postpone trial until April 25. That’ll be after a March 10 evidence hearing on an unrelated felony domestic violence case that could get the undefeated prizefighter 34 years in prison.
The misdemeanor case stems from allegations that Mayweather poked a 21-year-old homeowner association guard in the face during an argument about parking tickets.
Mayweather’s attorneys deny wrongdoing on his behalf. Mayweather is one of boxing’s richest and most recognizable figures, but he has been dogged in recent years by allegations of violence at home and at Las Vegas clubs.
