Floyd Mayweather’s boxing record remains unblemished, but the same can’t be said for his entourage’s vehicle fleet.
A van donned with Floyd Mayweather’s The Money Team logo was broken into and set on fire by two individuals Sunday morning in Birmingham, England, TMZ reports. The two people, who haven’t yet been identified, reportedly broke one of the van’s windows with a brick, then threw a Molotov cocktail inside.
Mayweather was in England over the weekend for a stop on his “Undefeated” tour, a series of events where he speaks to audiences and does meet-and-greets with fans. The van was found near his hotel and reportedly was connected to members of his U.K.-based promotional team, but actually wasn’t owned by Mayweather.
Although no one was hurt during the incident, which is being investigated by the West Midlands Police, the TMT-branded van was burnt to a crisp.
“Police are investigating an arson attack on a vehicle parked at a Birmingham hotel,” West Midlands Police said in a statement, via the Birmingham Mail. “No one was injured following the fire. Offenders smashed the window of the vehicle, a people carrier, before pouring accelerant inside and setting it alight. Inquiries into the fire, which caused extensive damage to the vehicle belonging to a guest, are currently ongoing and police are examining CCTV from the area.”
The situation capped off a pretty rough week for Mayweather, whose Las Vegas home was broken into Wednesday while he was in Los Angeles celebrating his 40th birthday, according to ESPN.
