Reports are circling this morning linking undefeated boxing great, Floyd Mayweather Jr., to a beating delivered to some contractors after jewelry from his house went missing.
TMZ broke the story saying:
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ Sports … the two men had been hired to work on Floyd’s Vegas homes … but when jewelry went missing, Floyd pointed the finger at them.
We’re told the men claim they were contacted several weeks ago and instructed to meet Floyd at an off-site location.
When the men arrived, they claim Floyd was waiting for them — along with a number of his “people” — who proceeded to beat the living crap out of them with various weapons, including clubs.
Our sources say the attack was so brutal the men could have easily died. Both men had broken arms and legs and were hospitalized for several days.
While this may be one of the stranger allegations thrown at Mayweather, the prize-fighter does have a history of violent crimes, including a stint in prison after beating his girlfriend.
Mayweather’s camp has not responded to media reaching out for questions.
We will have more information on this story as it unfolds.
