Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is facing a lawsuit for assault and battery. The lawsuit alleges that Mayweather, along with his business The Money Team LLC, and a restaurant, are responsible for injuries sustained by a man who was tackled by Mayweather’s bodyguard. 

The plaintiff, Eduardo Andres Torres Martinez, claims that the incident occurred while he was dining at a Yard House in Los Angeles on February 10th, 2022, as reported by Jasmine Brand. As Mayweather and his entourage entered the restaurant, a commotion broke out as diners approached him for autographs and pictures. Martinez says he started recording the scene on his phone, which caught Mayweather’s attention.

Martinez says the boxer then gestured to his bodyguard to


him, resulting in a confrontation between him, the bodyguard, and a struggle to gain possession of his phone. According to reports, the plaintiff alleges in his lawsuit that the bodyguard,

“negligently, carelessly, intentionally, maliciously and/or physically touched, struck, and/or hit [Martinez] by striking”

Martinez is suing Mayweather and the restaurant’s security for assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, as well as general negligence. He claims to have suffered severe physical and mental injuries, along with significant medical expenses. 

Although he filed a police report against Mayweather, no charges were pursued due to a lack of evidence and conflicting witness statements. Mayweather denies any involvement in the incident, stating he left the crowded Yard House soon after arriving. The lawsuit’s monetary value remains undisclosed, and the case awaits a judge’s ruling.
