13. Domestic Violence
“Floyd Mayweather went to jail for domestic violence and was the biggest PPV draw of all time, so I’m going to say the evidence is not very solid that people hate women beaters. “I do though,” @VicNobu wrote. The author of this tweet succinctly reveals the reality of “Money’s” career. One of the most scandalous moments in recent boxing history occurred when he received a jail sentence in 2012.
A judge sentenced him to 60 days in jail for domestic assault. However, one fan revealed the ludicrous nature of the sentence. “That time a judge agreed to postpone Floyd Mayweather’s jail sentence for a domestic violence case so he could fight on Cinco de Mayo,” @jedigoodman wrote. Overall, this was exactly the case. This jail term didn’t upset Mayweather’s earning power because he became the biggest sports star on the planet.
