Greg La Rosa's comment

''There were no issues inside the club and described the evening as a great night. Mayweather stayed inside the club for a little over an hour before leaving to head back to the Inter Continental Hotel.
"All I heard was a big bang on the side of the car. It almost sounded like a car accident, or as if someone had grabbed a baseball bat and hit the side of the car as hard as they could.''
