LAS VEGAS (AP) — Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is due for trial on misdemeanor charges accusing him of threatening two homeowner association security guards in October 2010 outside his Las Vegas home.

A prosecutor and an attorney for the 34-year-old Mayweather said Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Diana Sullivan was due to hear the case beginning at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Mayweather could face up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine if the judge finds him guilty of both harassment charges.

He’s accused of threatening to summon friends he called “homies” with guns to handle a dispute with the two guards who ticketed several of his vehicles parked near his house in violation of association rules.

Mayweather is 42-0 in his professional boxing career, with 26 knockouts.
