There’s a warrant out for Floyd Mayweather Sr.’s arrest, according to police.

The world famous boxer’s father reportedly attended the Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin fight in September where things got heated with an unidentified woman. Mayweather Sr. began fighting with the woman in a Las Vegas parking lot outside the T Mobile Arena. When things escalated, Mayweather Sr. allegedly grabbed her by the leg and dragged her out of his car and began punching her in the leg before he drove off. The woman was later taken to a local hospital and treated for her injuries.

Mayweather Sr. has categorically denied all allegations leveled against him, even though he was charged for misdemeanor and battery and there’s now a warrant out for his arrest – according to TMZ Sports.

Although it’s unclear what the alleged fight was about, Mayweather Sr.’s representatives have said the woman was “trying to extort money and she’s angry because she’s not getting the money from Floyd. It’s not going the way she wants it to go.”

Sounds slightly different than Mayweather Sr.’s total denial of the incident, but we’ll let that one lie.

Whether or not it’s true, Floyd Mayweather Sr. is not the kind of guy I’d want to get into a fight with. He was a pro boxer until 1990 and has trained Oscar De La Hoya and his own son, Floyd Mayweather Jr.
