Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. is facing financial problems from the IRS. According to The Detroit News, Mayweather, Jr. is allegedly facing a massive $3.4 million tax bill.
According to some reports around the Mayweather camp, this financial situation could see him make a hasty return to the ring.
Officials at America's Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filed a lien against Mayweather Jr. in Clark County, Nevada on January 21st, 2011. The lien was filed just weeks after the boxing star was arrested on suspicion of abusing his ex-girlfriend and taking her cell phone during an altercation in front of their three children.
Mayweather Jr. is facing a number of charges stemming from the alleged incident back in September, including felony coercion, grand larceny and robbery, as well as misdemeanor domestic battery and harassment charges.
Adding to this notorious list, Floyd is also facing a criminal battery charge stemming from an alleged altercation with a security guard outside his Las Vegas home in November.
This isn’t the undefeated fighter’s first time in the ring with the government. In 2008, Floyd was hit with a $6.1 million tax bill. But he eventually worked out a settlement plan with the federal government for that sum.
Talk about having money problems. The only good that can come of Mayweather Jr.'s recent financial woes is his possible hasty return to the ring.
Mayweather Jr. is due back in court on April 25th.
