Lawsuit Filed Against Floyd Mayweather Demands Boxer Pays Out Over $3M For Alleged Assault

A man who was allegedly assaulted by Floyd Mayweather‘s security at the behest of the undefeated boxer has sued him and is demanding over $3 million in damages.

According to RadarOnline, Eduardo Martinez has accused Mayweather of making his security assault him and is suing them for assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and general negligence, according to court documents obtained by the media outlet.

The suit was originally filed in January. Martinez is asking the court to award him $1.5 million in general damages, $500,000 for future medical expenses, $40,000 for past medical expenses, $300,000 for loss of future earnings, and another million in punitive damages. The paperwork was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Martinez stated that the incident took place on February 10, 2022, in Los Angeles at a Yard House near Crypto.com Arena. He said that the boxer and his “Mayweather Money Team” entered the venue which brought attention to them and caused a commotion. He claimed to have taken out his mobile phone and started to film. After Mayweather saw him recording, he instructed the security team to make him stop recording.

He then stated in the suit that the bodyguard approached him and “negligently, carelessly, intentionally, maliciously and/or physically touched, struck, and/or hit [Martinez] by striking” Martinez causing him to fall. In an “attempt to confiscate” his cell phone, the bodyguard wrestled with him which allegedly caused him further injuries and damages. He said he was “placed in great fear for his life, health, and safety.”

Martinez also asserted that the staff at Yard House did not do anything to help him and allowed Mayweather’s team to assault him.

In the lawsuit, Martinez expressed that the alleged assault caused him physical injuries as well as severe mental suffering, anguish, humiliation, and emotional distress.

The boxer has yet to respond to the allegations against him in court.
