Floyd Mayweather is still undefeated with his 48-0 record and definitely still has some bragging rights. But as of yesterday, Mayweather no longer owns the WBO welterweight title belt that he won when he beat Pacquiao on May 2.
The WBO last week let Mayweather know he would have to give up the 154-pound WBA and WBO belts but can keep the 147-pound WBO belt he won. He was also fined $200k in order to get the 147-pound WBO belt. But since Mayweather didn’t agree to that request, he has been stripped of the 147-pound WBO belt as well. The WBO went on to say this in a document:
“The WBO world championship committee is allowed no other alternative but to cease to recognize Mr. Floyd Mayweather Jr. as the WBO welterweight champion of the world and vacate his title for failing to comply with our WBO regulations of world championship contests.”
Money Mayweather and his team were obviously not happy with this ruling, and Mayweather’s promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe said that the ruling is a “complete disgrace.” Ellerbe also went on to say that although Mayweather was stripped of some titles he is going to continue “enjoying a couple of hundred million he made from his last outing” while trying to decide what to do to get his belts back.
It seems as though this isn’t bothering Mayweather too much since his last instagram posts were flyers for his upcoming club appearances in St. Louis!
