According to reports both men were hospitalised for several days.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. allegedly orchestrated an attack on two men he employed to work on his Vegas homes as he believed they stole his jewellery.
According to TMZ, the 37-year-old organised the attack after he suspected them of taking the items when some of his jewellery went missing, after which he summoned the pair to a meeting at an off-site location.
Once they had arrived, it is reported that they were ambushed by Mayweather and his associates who brutally beat them with “various weapons, including clubs”.
A TMZ source said that both men suffered broken arms and legs and were left hospitalised for several days, with the source describing it as “some Breaking Bad s**t” with the victims severely beaten.
It is understood that the two men still claim that they did not take anything from the billionaire boxer for whom they have worked on various properties, and it appears as though Mayweather is now aware of that.
However, it will not help the boxing superstar as the attack reportedly amounts to attempted murder, mayhem and kidnapping with the two men now retaining lawyers over the situation and they are expected to take action in the forthcoming weeks after they have made a recovery.
Mayweather’s camp have refused to comment on the story, and with his next fight scheduled for May 3 against Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand, it remains to be seen what implications this has on his future after previous misdemeanors.
Nevertheless, given the source and lack of clear evidence over the situation, there is no definitive suggestion that Mayweather was at all involved.
