Floyd Mayweather Sued for $20 Million

Floyd Mayweather was paid $100 million for his fight against Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2015, and he earned the most amount of money ever for a single fight in the history of boxing. Mayweather won the bout, but boxing fans were extremely disappointed with his performance. Floyd Mayweather danced around the ring for 12 rounds, and he did little damage to to his injured opponent.

Nonetheless, Mikal Watts tells us Floyd Mayweather won the fight, and he received the largest amount of money that a boxer has ever been paid. However, Floyd Mayweather was recently sued for $20 million by his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris. The lawsuit stems from an interview that Floyd Mayweather had with Katie Couric leading up to the mega-fight against Manny Pacquiao. Katie Couric asked Floyd Mayweather about his domestic abuse history, and Mayweather apparently lied about his criminal background. Floyd Mayweather said that Josie Harris was a drug addict, and he did nothing wrong by restraining her during the events that took place in 2010.

Josie Harris was angered by the lies that Floyd Mayweather spoke about her, and she filed a $20 million defamation of character lawsuit against him. No further details have been released about the lawsuit. For more information on this story, visit Yahoo! Sports.
