Sporting News is reporting that court officials in Las Vegas say an evidence hearing will be postponed again for boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a felony domestic violence case. Court spokeswoman Mary Ann Price said that Mayweather isn't expected to appear Thursday while a Las Vegas judge sets a new date.
Mayweather is accused of hitting and threatening his ex-girlfriend, stealing her cell phone and threatening two of their children last September. He could face 34 years in state prison if convicted.
The case is separate from a misdemeanor battery case alleging the 34-year-old Mayweather poked a homeowner-association security guard in the face during a November argument outside his home. On Monday, a judge set that case for trial Sept. 1.
Mayweather Jr. is in a heap of trouble. Perhaps he should start anger-management classes now as opposed to later? Hitting someone outside the ring with his hands, which are lethal weapons, is not a good idea. Allegedly bullying and battering loved ones is unconscionable.
