Nigerian Company Sues Floyd Mayweather For $2M
Floyd Mayweather is facing a lawsuit from a Nigeria booking company. Floyd Mayweather was recently revealed to be the highest paid athlete in the past twelve months. It doesn’t really come as a shock especially after his fight with Conor McGregor last summer. He’s always been a flashy guy and recently, he showed off his “billionaire watch” which costs $18M.
Despite this type of money that he has, Mayweather is currently being accused of finessing a Nigerian company for hundreds of thousands of dollars over appearances in Nigeria and Ghana.
Mayweather reportedly agreed to do the appearances for $375K and received a $210K advance. Mayweather later made videos confirming his appearances in the West African countries. Unfortunately, he ended up cancelling his appearances a few days before.
In the lawsuit, Zinni Media claims Mayweather agreed to reschedule to December 2017 and add more appearances. However, they increased the price from $375K to $550K but they were told the $210K could be used towards the cost. They claim that they asked Floyd to make another new video confirming his appearances but he flopped on that again and didn’t repay the $210K advance he received.
Zinni is now claiming Floyd damaged their reputation and defrauded them. It’s taking legal actions through a federal court in California and suing Floyd for at least $2M.
