Before You Go

Dating back to the mid-90’s, Josie Harris and Mayweather reportedly had an abusive relationship together. Floyd ultimately served time behind bars on a domestic violence conviction.

Over the course of their rocky relationship, which began in 1995, Harris claimed that she suffered repeated abuse at the hands of her boxer beau. Mayweather in 2010 was convicted for attacking his former girlfriend and served two months behind bars for the domestic violence incident. He allegedly entered her Vegas home in September of that year, pulled her to floor by her hair and started to beat her, according to USA Today. The attack ended only after their oldest child, Koraun, managed to sneak out of the house and get help. (New York Daily News)

  1. Sounds like he never been in love before. Was it real? Love is a many splendid thing. A good virtue to have. So, make sure you get a good woman. She can move powerful structures. We need our women to respect us. So we should respect them more so. Dont be a sucker for love. Life depends on this.
