Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is getting more time to prepare for his misdemeanor battery trial stemming from an alleged scuffle with a homeowners association security guard. Yesterday a Nevada judge granted the 34-year-old boxing champion a continuance in the case.
The security guard claims Mayweather poked him in the face during a November 2010 argument about cars parking outside the boxer’s Las Vegas home. The boxer could get a one-thousand-dollar fine and six months in jail if convicted.
The trial is now set to begin September 1st.
Meanwhile, Mayweather will be back in court this Thursday to face charges in a separate domestic violence case involving the mother of his children. He is accused of assaulting Josie Harris, stealing her cell phone, and threatening her and two of their kids. He could face up to 34 years in prison if convicted on all charges in the case.
Mayweather’s rap sheet already includes battery and assault convictions stemming from bar fights in 2002 and 2005.
