Argument About Floyd Mayweather Jr. Leads to Murder

by David P. Greisman

A man has been accused of killing a 20-year-old in Phoenix because he was apparently offended that the victim was not a fan of Floyd Mayweather Jr., according to The Denver Post.

The alleged shooter, Allen Robinson, 31, has been charged with first-degree murder.

Police say Robinson and another man approached the victim, 20-year-old Francisco Suarez, and a 19-year-old man on May 6 outside of a convenience store in Phoenix. The men asked these underage men to buy them alcohol, as the clerk inside had already refused to sell to them because they seemed drunk, according to the article.

The conversation turned into a discussion about Mayweather, who had beaten Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision just hours before. Police said Robinson got upset that the young men weren’t Mayweather fans and fired a gun several times, killing Suarez, according to the article.

The other man who was with Robinson has turned himself in to police.

There will be some crazy Floyd fan that loses their s*** on Saturday night after Floyd loses. Well will have to do a head count on May 3rd over here, and see who missing.
