Floyd Mayweather Sued For Scamming Media Outlet In Nigeria
According to TMZ , Floyd Mayweather is being sued for $2M by Zinni Media. They claim they booked Floyd to make several appearances in Nigeria and Ghana in June 2017.
Mayweather reportedly agreed to do the appearances for $375K and received a $210K advance. Floyd Mayweather later made videos confirming his appearances in the West African countries.
Unfortunately, he ended up cancelling his
appearances a few days before. In the lawsuit, Zinni Media claims Mayweather agreed to reschedule to December 2017 and add more appearances.
However, they increased the price from $375K to $550K but they were told the $210K could be used towards the cost. They claim that they asked. Floyd to make another new video confirming his appearances but he
flopped on that again and didn’t repay the $210K advance he received.
Zinni is now claiming Floyd damaged their reputation and defrauded them. He’s taking legal actions through a federal court in California and suing Floyd for at least $2M.
