Floyd Mayweather will go down as one of—perhaps the—best boxer of all-time. However, there will always be a dark cloud hanging over his head regarding the domestic violence allegations made by his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris, which resulted in Mayweather serving two months in jail in 2012. Even though his son Koraun, who was 10 years old at the time, described what he saw in the early hours of Sept. 9, 2010 in a handwritten note to police, Floyd still contests that he did not stomp, kick, and/or beat Harris.
During his sit-down interview on SportsCenter, Floyd was asked about those domestic violence allegations by Cari Champion, and once again, the 39-year-old is maintaining that he did nothing wrong. “You know that was in my past," he said. "And of course, with any situation, when someone talks about domestic violence with a fighter like myself, when they say Floyd was involved with domestic violence, restraining someone? Yes I did that. I’m guilty of restraining."
Floyd believes that, if he did attack his ex-girlfriend, there would've been photos of her injuries. "As far as stomp, kick and beat a woman, the world would see photos," Mayweather said. "For so many years, they tried to defeat me in so many different ways as far as negative things but I couldn’t be defeated inside the ring so they tried to defeat me on the outside." Mayweather added, "I’m still waiting to see photos,” and claiming that he "beat all odds," which is a terrible choice of words.
As for getting back into the ring, Floyd doesn't see it happening, claiming that it's around 90 to 95 percent unlikely that he would put the gloves back on ever again. Still, longtime rumored opponent Conor McGregor is doing all he can to change his mind by talking about Mayweather's favorite topic: money. After McGregor demanded a $100 million purse for a boxing match against Mayweather, Floyd presented a counter offer on ESPN's First Take, saying, "We are willing to give him $15 million and then we can talk about splitting the percentage—the back end—on the pay-per-view."
Since that approach doesn't appear to be working, McGregor is going the mental warfare route with this post on Instagram.
For context: when Mayweather discovered the text messages being exchanged between Harris and C.J Watson, the boxer allegedly responded by grabbing Harris and pulling her by the hair.
