Floyd Mayweather Jr. is in some hot water again.
Two professional fighters in Las Vegas are suing the boxing champion and producers of a cable TV show, arguing that they never authorized or gave their consent to be part of a promotional training match that was depicted as a “dog house” fight that was supposed to last until someone quit.
Hashim Rahman Jr. and younger brother Sharif Rahman accuse Showtime Networks and Mayweather of profiting at their expense.
The civil lawsuit was filed on Thursday and seeks unspecified monetary compensation (of more than $10,000) from the New York-based network and Mayweather.
Mayweather’s attorney Mark Tratos declined to comment.
