Floyd Mayweather’s Bodyguard Allegedly Punched Fan Multiple Times After Photo Rejection (VIDEO)
Floyd Mayweather was reportedly in the middle of a fight just before Thanksgiving, but he wasn’t the one delivering knock out punches.
According to TMZ, man who works at a local Las Vegas mall said a member of Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s The Money Team crew punched him earlier this week after Mayweather declined to take a photo with the man.
Mall surveillance footage appears to show a man in a Mayweather TMT shirt punching another man multiple times.
“We’re told Floyd was exiting the House of Hoops store with his girlfriend and his crew when an employee working at one of the kiosks nearby approached for a photo. The employee, Juan Calderon, tells TMZ … he was trying to get a pic for a coworker who felt weird asking, but Floyd shot him down.
Calderon says Mayweather was rude about the rejection, so he let Floyd and his group know that he thought they were “acting like d**ks.”
One of Floyd’s boys allegedly confronted Calderon about the comments, and Juan tells us he told the guy Floyd should take photos with his fans. Juan says the guy tried to smooth things over and shake his hand … but he refused.
That may have been a bad move because Calderon tells us another crew member noticed he was still looking Floyd’s way … so he then approached to confront Juan about his insults.
The apparent bodyguard can be seen in the mall footage wearing a TMT shirt walking next to Floyd and is later seen throwing at least a couple punches at Calderon. Juan says the guy unloaded on him, landing 3-5 blows before leaving.”
Calderon was said to have gone to the hospital for a CT scan and it revealed no damage to his brain. He would go on to file a police report, and law enforcement confirms it responded to a call for a simple battery incident at the mall.
“Sources close to Mayweather tell us … Calderon was antagonizing the boxer and his crew, and they believe he was looking for a fight — and a lawsuit.”
