LAS VEGAS (AP) — Superstar boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is facing a civil lawsuit from two men who say he orchestrated a shooting attack on them two years ago outside a Las Vegas skating rink.

The lawsuit obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press accuses the undefeated fighter, Ocie Harris and others of making threats since the attack.

Quincey Williams and Damien Bland say in the lawsuit that they want Mayweather and his associates to stop contacting them, plus money for damages.

Lawyers for Mayweather and Harris were not immediately available for comment.

Harris, accused of firing shots at the plaintiffs, has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges in the shooting. His trial is scheduled for February.

Mayweather (41-0) is currently training for a Sept. 17 fight against Victor Ortiz.
