Floyd Mayweather is lucky to be alive after a possible attempt on his life took place in Atlanta this weekend.
TMZ Sports is reporting that the incident happened while the champion boxer was returning to his hotel with his crew early Monday morning.
As he was travelling with a three-car entourage, a fourth vehicle drove up along side Mayweather’s group. According to the police report, this is where things got crazy:
“Another vehicle pulled up beside them at the intersection of Peachtree Road and Highland Drive and fired several times at one of the vehicles. All three vehicles fled and reported being followed for a distance.”
Although the boxer is fine, one of his bodyguards ended up taking a bullet to the leg. He received treatment for his injury and is reportedly in stable condition.
Currently, police do not have a suspect in custody and they are also not sure if Mayweather was the target. However, they do not believe this was a random shooting as the attacker was clearly targeting the victim’s car.
We wish the best to Floyd Mayweather and his bodyguard.
