Floyd Mayweather has a new fight on his hands, but this time it’s a legal one.
According to TMZ, ‘Money’ is being sued by Nigerian company Zinni Media, who claim the 41-year-old failed to show up for five appearances he was supposed to make in Nigeria and Ghana.
After recording a video confirming that he will be making the appearances in June 2017, the company sent him $210k (R2 876 241,90) of the $375k (R 5 136 146,25) he requested.

However, his camp then requested that the appearances be pushed to December 2017, which Zinni agreed too, and it was decided that the $210k could be used for the new booking.
Despite the changes made to accommodate him, the 41-year-old boxer failed to pitch for the appearance and/or pay back the money.
In their lawsuit, Zinni Media – who filed court papers in California – say they are suing the retired boxer for both the money he allegedly took and for reputational damage.
As a result of his failed appearances, the company is looking for at least $2m (R27m) in damages.
Should Floyd be forced to pay the amount, it’s unlikely to cause much of a dent in his bank account. In June, Forbes listed him as the world’s highest paid athlete having racked in $275m (R3 766 507 250,00) in 2017.
UEFA Champions League Draw: Man City vs Tottenham, Liverpool play Porto…
The UEFA Champions League offered some mouthwatering quarter-final clashes following the draw at the UEFA Headquarters in Nyon on Friday.
With a new champion set to be crowned in May after holders Real Madrid were dumped out in the last 16 by an inspiring young Ajax Amsterdam outfit, this now sets out a real chance for at least six teams who have already tasted success at this level to once again add this prestigious trophy to their cabinets.
Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have been pitted against each other in an all-English Champions League quarter-final.
Manchester United take on Spanish giants Barcelona, while Liverpool will square up against Portuguese champions Porto. Ajax and Juventus meet in the other tie.
United have been forced to play their first leg tie at Old Trafford because both they and City cannot play in Manchester on the same evening.
The winner of the City and Spurs tie will take on either Ajax or Juventus in the semi-final.
Winners from the United and Barca clash will then go on to face the team that progresses between Liverpool and Porto.
The first legs will be played on April 9 and 10, the second legs on April 16 and 17.
Real Madrid Confirm Zinedine Zidane Reappointemnt After Sacking Santiago Solari
Real Madrid have confirmed the appointment of former manager Zinedine Zidane following the sacking of Santiago Solari, with the French legend signing a contract until 2022.
Los Blancos decided to remove Solari as first-team coach following the club’s disastrous UEFA Champions League exit at the hands of Ajax Amsterdam last week.
Solari’s job came under serious threat following Real’s 4-1 loss at home to Ajax which was followed by back-to-back El Clasico defeats against Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu as they crashed out of the Copa Del Rey and fell 12 points behind their fierce rivals in La Liga.
Zidane’s first game back at the club will be at the Santiago Bernabeu against Celta Vigo on Saturday.
