Floyd Mayweather is one of the best boxers to ever do it as he finished his career with a 50-0. Many also remember his relationship with Josie Harris, who he dated from 1995-2010. The two had three children together as the relationship was very rocky with its ups and downs. On March 10 though, Harris passed away after being found unresponsive in her car, according to Hollywood Life. She was only 40-years-old at the time as she was found in Valencia, CA.
A rep for Harris has since released a statement to Hollywood Life sadly confirming her death.
“Unfortunately, the report is true. We will truly miss Josie.”
Going back to Mayweather and Harris’ relationship, there were definitely some moments that escalated for the worse. In 2020, the former world champion was charged with domestic violence and spent two months in jail. Harris ended up accusing Mayweather of domestic violence on six different occasions. Despite the sentence, he still believed that he was wrongfully convicted.
“Did I restrain a woman that was on drugs? Yes, I did. So if they say that’s domestic violence, then, you know what? I’m guilty. I’m guilty of restraining someone.” These comments resulted in Harris hitting Mayweather with a $20 million defamation lawsuit.
As far as Harris’ own career, she was active in her pursuit of being an actress. In 2006, she appeared in the film ‘Exit 38.’ In 2013, she was in the ‘Good Day LA’ episode of ‘Starter Wives Confidential.’
As far as any official cause of death, TMZ reported that there was no foul play involved as police say this being treated as a death investigation and not a homicide probe. Harris was initially found at 9:30pm.
Mayweather has not spoken out regarding Harris’ death yet. As of now, he is overseas in Amsterdam. Last night, he posted a photo of himself in the city’s famous Red Light District. He was seen exploring the areas as his caption was “#Amsterdam The only place that a red light mean GO. #RedLightDistrict”
As far as Mayweather returning to the ring, there’s been rumors about him starting to participate in MMA. According to Insider, UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov has been receiving $100 million offers from Saudi Arabia to fight Mayweather. As many remember, Mayweather beat UFC’s Conor McGregor in August 2017 in a boxing match. If he were to fight Nurmagomedov, the question would be is if it’d be under boxing or MMA stipulations.
Mayweather’s last official fight was in December 2018 against 20-year-old Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan. The champ won easily in the first round as he earned $9 million.
