Floyd Mayweather Jr. will fight Canelo Alvarez on Sept. 14 for another giant purse. But a company called White Glove International doesn’t seem interested in waiting for the dust to settle on that one before taking care of some outstanding business with Mayweather.
The company is suing Mayweather for $80,000 after the boxing star failed to pay for courtside tickets for Game 7 of the NBA Finals between the Heat and the Spurs, TMZ reports. Mayweather bought three $25,000 tickets and one $5,000 seat the day of the game, but he still hasn’t provided the cash, according to the report.
It’s not the first time Mayweather has shown interest in Miami basketball. As the Heat were making their run to a second straight NBA title last season, Mayweather was said to have laid down a $5.9 million bet on Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals, when the Heat were playing the Pacers.
That’s a lot of money — significantly more than the $80,000 — but Mayweather is due a guaranteed $41.5 million from Saturday’s fight.
