Benard Hopkins referred to an incident where it seemed as if he was eluding to Floyd getting the crap beat out of him in the top rank gym. Has anybody heard any more rumors about this altercation??? It's at the 26:00 mark.

The Spadafora thing? Even if he is talking about a different thing FLoyd is a gym rat so I am sure he has had his fair share of gym wars.

Nah, he's not talking about Spadafora. He's talking about something a little more sinister.

That was how I heard that story, I am pretty sure there was a gun involved. They did do a number on Floyd though either way.

It also wasn't at the Top Rank Gym. It was at a 24 Hour Fitness Gym

"Mayweather also found himself in some trouble when he was in a fierce contractual battle with former manager James Prince. Top Rank stepped in and advanced him $610,000 to settle with Prince, and also cut Prince a check for 20 percent of Mayweather's $3.05 million dollar purse for fighting Phillip Ndou.

The situation with Prince, a well known figure in the rap world, escalated to a dangerous level when several men showed up to the Top Rank Gym on September 11, 2003 and roughed up Leonard Ellerbe and former camp member Thomas Summers, sending both to the hospital.

Mayweather's camp has never confirmed the story, but both DuBoef and Arum claimed to have saved a "shaken" Floyd Mayweather, Jr., who told DuBoef 'These are bad guys, you have to help me save my family.'

"I said, 'Let me give James a letter of credit,' " Arum said. "And Floyd said -- I'll never forget it -- 'James don't take no letter of credit.' "

So it was at the Top Rank Gym. People in Vegas told me it was at a 24 Hour Fitness. But all I do know for sure is that Ellerbe and bodyguards got whooped.

Why would Prince touch Floyd? That was his money man right there. Probably scared Floyd a little

James Prince is a real as cat. There are storys about people trying to sue him because the got whooped by his crew

cause Mayweather wanted to break away from Prince's contract

And Prince wasn't going to let him go without a fight
