Mayweather Might Be Handing Out $30K on the Streets of L.A., But He Still Has to Contend with a $3 Million Lawsuit

While it has still yet to be determined if boxing millionaire Floyd Mayweather was detained in Dubai recently over a financial dispute, one thing is for sure is that he will have to deal with an outstanding lawsuit.

Inside the Lawsuit

In January, a man named Eduardo Martinez filed a lawsuit alleging assault by Mayweather’s security detail outside a downtown LA restaurant. Martinez’s lawsuit, which seeks $3 million in restitution, names Mayweather, The Money Team LLC, and Yard House, citing assault, battery, emotional distress, and negligence, as The Los Angeles Times reported.

According to RadarOnline, the outlet recently obtained the court papers that reveal Martinez is seeking $1.5 million in general damages, $500,000 for future medical expenses, $40,000 for past medical costs, $300,000 for loss of future earnings, and $1 million in punitive damages.

So far it does not seem as if Mayweather, who last week was reported have handed out $30,000 to three homeless men in L.A., has taken any action in regard to the lawsuit.

While Mayweather allegedly did not directly engage with Martinez, Martinez claims the champ instructed his security team to intervene when Martinez attempted to film him on his phone.

The alleged incident is claimed to have unfolded on Feb. 10, 2022, as Mayweather and his entourage caused a stir upon entering Yard House at LA Live.

When Mayweather later left the restaurant, Martinez tried to record him.

Martinez also alleges negligence on the part of the restaurant for failing to intervene. 

Mayweather’s camp has disputed the allegations, with a representative asserting that the 47-year-old boxer merely “stopped by” the restaurant and departed due to overcrowding, denying any altercation occurred, according to Bleacher Report.

Other Lawsuits

This is not the first time Mayweather has been involved in legal issues related to assault.

ESPN reports Mayweather faced a lawsuit for allegedly instructing his bodyguards to assault a man at a Las Vegas Casino on March 27, 2010, after the individual asked to take some photos with Floyd.

The man, identified as Anthony Cliff, asserted that Floyd instigated the attack, alleging disrespect toward him as the reason.

According to the lawsuit, the bodyguards purportedly struck him in the face, forcefully pushed him to the ground, and proceeded to repeatedly kick him in his back and sides.

The outcome of Cliff’s lawsuit is unknown.
