The undefeated American professional boxer Floyd Mayweather also known as a women beater, has surprised everyone with his new humanitarian efforts.
It has been reported that Floyd Mayweather has purchased a large facility in Las Vegas which is going to be the women’s domestic violence shelter in Nevada which is #1 state for domestic violence assaults.
However, Many people still do not believe that Floyd could ever do something good, specially for women. But for now Floyd has decided to show his new, softer side.
Floyd Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend Josie Harris filed a lawsuit against him for domestic assault in California’s Superior Court in Los Angeles County.
“Around five o’clock in the morning on September 9, 2010, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., entered Josie Harris’s home. He found her asleep on the family-room sofa. Already worked up into a jealous rage, the world-champion boxer then grabbed sleeping Harris by her hair and started to viciously beat her — punching, striking, kicking, stomping, dragging, and tossing her around the house — all right in front of their frightened children”
But according to Floyd Mayweather:
“I’ve never put my hands on any woman. Does she have photos, video and proof? No she doesn’t. I care about women and their safety. My mom is a woman, and I love her. I mean, if a man tells you that you ain’t nothing don’t believe him. And if he can’t learn to love you, you should leave him.”
Currently Floyd Mayweather claims that he have changed and he wants to prove it by doing something good for women. Which he believes will change women’s thinking about him.
The area/land bought by Floyd Mayweather will remain undisclosed for now, it is said that the facility will maintain 600 beds for women and their children under the age of 13.
Many critics say that this is just another move by Mayweather to win the sympathy of the court during this nasty lawsuits.
The new domestic violence shelter, “Weather the Storm” is scheduled to open September 1, 2015. Just before he is to fight his final fight, retiring and relinquishing all five of his title belts.
