Floyd Mayweather - Will Family Drama Get In the Way of Manny Pacquiao Fight?


floyd mayweatherIt looks Floyd Mayweather is the only thing standing in the way of Manny Pacquiao’s domination of the boxing world. 

Within minutes of Manny Pacquiao defeating Antonio Margarito the boxing world starting buzzing with anticipation of a potential Pacquiao v. Mayweather matchup.  An earlier fight was in the works until Pacquiao balked at Mayweather’s request for random drug tests throughout their pre-fight training time. 

Another issue facing Mayweather is in ongoing difficulties with his former girlfriend Josie Harris.  Ms. Harris has alleged that Mayweather attacked her and their two sons in September.  Just last week Mayweather was ordered to stay away from both Ms. Harris and their sons pending his court case on the domestic violence incident. 

Mayweather is currently facing eight charges including felony coercion, grand larceny and robbery, and misdemeanor domestic battery and harassment.  He faces up to 34 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

It appears that any potential Pacquiao v. Mayweather matchup will have to wait until the boxer resolves his current legal situation.
