Floyd Mayweather’s Son: “(My Dad’s) A Coward”

The domestic violence allegations that have kept a dark cloud above the luxurious career of Floyd Mayweather are not going away anytime soon. The incident against the mother of his three children, Josie Harris, still looms large as it is that situation that put Mayweather behind bars for a couple of months. For those unaware, it was the domestic dispute where Mayweather’s then 10-year-old Koraun ran to get help after Harris was attacked by Mayweather over a text message from her then-boyfriend, NBA player CJ Watson.

Since the situation went down, Mayweather did his short jail stint and returned to the ring and his status as the highest paid athlete in the world. But what happened to Harris that night still haunts her.

In a feature on USA Today Sports, Harris again addressed the domestic violence she endured at the hands of Mayweather.

“I was a battered woman,” Harris said. “I felt embarrassed about saying I was a battered woman. I felt shame. I felt like it was my fault. What did I do? I didn’t understand what a battered woman was at that time. Now I know I was in a very dysfunctional, hostile relationship and a victim of domestic violence.”

Perhaps more significant to the story is the voice of Mayweather’s now-14-year-old son Koraun. After looking at the police report he wrote — which he says was “pretty good” despite not having any commas — Koraun reflected on his side of the story before dropping a bombshell on his father. And considering that he recently took a photo with the boxing kingpin, who had just purchased a brand new gold Bentley golf cart for his son, it doesn’t seem that the oldest of Mayweather’s three kids by Harris is trying to keep things cordial.

Koraun says recalling the attack on his mother still makes him angry, yet the most difficult part to cope with has been Mayweather’s refusal to admit to his actions.

“He is a coward,” Koraun said, and he hugged his mom.
