Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on TMZ Sports, Mayweather was involved in an incident at a Las Vegas mall on Wednesday, November 28, 2019, that resulted in a fan getting thumped by a presumed member of his security team.
Per TMZ Sports' report, Mayweather 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, in an interview with TMZ said he was trying to get a picture for a coworker who felt weird asking, but Mayweather shot him down.
Calderon says Mayweather was rude about the rejection, so he let the former boxer and his group know about their behaviour.
He recounted that one of Mayweather's boys allegedly confronted him about the comments, and Calderon told TMZ Sports that he told the guy Mayweather should take photos with his fans.
Calderon said the guy tried to smooth things over and shake his hand but he refused.
Calderon told TMZ Sports that another crew member noticed he was still looking Mayweather's way so he then approached to confront him about his insults.
In the viral footage, the apparent bodyguard can be seen wearing a TMT shirt walking next to Floyd and is later seen throwing at least a couple of punches at Calderon.
Calderon said the guy unloaded on him, landing 3-5 blows before leaving.
He stressed that Mayweather was right there when the attack went down. Calderon added that he went to the hospital for a CT scan afterward which fortunately revealed no brain injury.
He also said he has filed a police report, and law enforcement confirmed it responded to a call for a simple battery incident at the mall on Wednesday night around 9:30 pm.

According to sources close to Mayweather, Calderon was antagonizing the boxer and his crew, and they believe he was looking for a fight and a lawsuit.
YEN.com.gh previously reported a story about Mayweather announcing that he will not be boxing again.
In what is his third retirement from the sport, Mayweather is very sure that he will not be returning to the ring as a boxer again.
