In the press conference for his 2002 fight against Jose Luis Castillo, Mayweather was asked about the conviction and said, "Everybody that knows Floyd Mayweather, knows I'm a good guy. In November 2003 Mayweather was arrested and charged with two counts of battery for allegedly fighting with two women at a Las Vegas nightclub.
He was later convicted of misdemeanor battery and ordered to serve 100 hours of community service, the Associated Press reported at the time.
When she admitted she was dating someone, he allegedly started hitting her.
Harris told police that Mayweather hit her in the back of the head, pulled her off a couch by her hair, and told her, "I'm going to kill you and the man you're messing with." One of Mayweather's sons saw the fight, ran out of the house, and alerted a friend of his mother's, who called the police, according to the police report.
The police report said Mayweather left after the police arrived, but returned at 5 a.m. Harris told police that she woke up to Mayweather standing over her reading her text messages.
Harris told Yahoo's Martin Rogers in 2013, "Did he beat me to a pulp?
No, but I had bruises on my body and contusions and [a] concussion because the hits were to the back of my head. because the bruises don't show …" Harris had "redness on her face and a large contusion to the right side of her forehead and chin" when she was examined at the hospital, according to the incident report.
Despite his 2011 guilty plea, Mayweather recently told Yahoo's Katie Couric that he doesn't beat women.
About the Josie Harris incident, he told Couric: "Did I kick, stomp and beat someone? I look in your face and say, 'No, that didn’t happen.' Did I restrain a woman that was on drugs? So if they say that’s domestic violence, then, you know what? I’m guilty of restraining someone." Harris has since relocated to California with their three children. I didn't understand what a battered woman was at that time.
