According to TMZ, Zinni Media reportedly booked the boxing champion to make five appearances in Nigeria and Ghana in June 2017. The company allegedly was able to get Mayweather to record a video confirming his visit for $375,000.
To keep things on the up and up, Nigerian company allegedly wired $210,000 in advance. However, when it came time for Mayweather to appear, he was a no-show.
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.
