Floyd Mayweather Faces $3 Million Lawsuit Over Alleged Assault

Floyd Mayweather, the undefeated boxing champion, is facing a lawsuit in which he is accused of orchestrating an assault on a man by his security team. Eduardo Martinez, the plaintiff, has filed a lawsuit against Floyd Mayweather, seeking over $3 million in damages for the alleged incident.

According to the lawsuit, which was initially filed in January in Los Angeles Superior Court, Martinez accuses Mayweather’s security team of assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and general negligence.

Martinez is requesting $1.5 million in general damages, $500,000 for future medical expenses, $40,000 for past medical expenses, $300,000 for loss of future earnings, and $1 million in punitive damages.

The alleged incident took place on February 10, 2022, at a Yard House near Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. Martinez claims that Floyd Mayweather and his entourage, known as the “Mayweather Money Team,” entered the restaurant, attracting attention.

When Martinez began filming the group with his phone, he alleges that Mayweather saw him and instructed his security team to intervene.

The lawsuit states that a bodyguard approached Martinez and physically struck him, causing him to fall to the ground. The bodyguard then reportedly wrestled with Martinez in an attempt to take his cell phone, leaving Martinez fearful for his safety.

Martinez also claims that the staff at the restaurant did not intervene and allowed Mayweather’s security team to assault him. He alleges that the incident resulted in physical injuries and severe emotional distress.

Mayweather has not yet responded to the allegations in court. The legal battle continues to unfold, casting a shadow over Mayweather’s otherwise untarnished reputation.
