Floyd Mayweather has a history of violence and brutality — and not just inside the ring. I’m talking about a history of battering women that spans more than 12 years. This includes seven documented assaults against five different women, some of them occurring in front of his children.
Mayweather is the highest-paid athlete in the world, which probably has something to do with the fact that he has barely been held accountable for this criminal behavior…
According to the Associated Press, Floyd Mayweather stands to make more than $180 million from this Saturday’s fight — far more than the $135 million the federal budget allocates for the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act, which provides only bare-bones funds for over 2000 domestic violence programs and shelters across the county.
Please join us by saying “no.” Don’t pay to watch an event that will reward Mayweather with even greater wealth and further endorse his criminal behavior. It’s time we all do our part to stop domestic violence.
