Roger Mayweather Arrested


Roger Mayweather was arrested over the weekend. The charges? Battery strangulation. On a woman no less.

The incident occurred on Sunday, when police found Mayweather strangling Melissa St. Vil, a boxer whom Mayweather formerly trained. There was known tension between the two, as St. Vil had recently parted ways with Mayweather as her trainer. She was staying with Cornelius Lock, a boxer who also trains with Mayweather, in a condominium that is owned by Roger. Mayweather no longer wanted St. Vil in the condo and asked her to leave, in which St. Vil refused to do so. This led to a physical confrontation between the two, and allegedly St. Vil threw a lamp over his head in an attempt to fight back, and Mayweather, according to Boxingscene.com, punched her several times on her face and body, and ultimately strangling her in a choke hold. She began coughing up blood and Mayweather was arrested.

Mayweather is charged with coercion with force and battery-strangulation. He was later released on bond, and St. Vil has announced that she plans on filing a civil lawsuit against Mayweather and pressing charges.

Roger, who is the uncle of Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his trainer, served six months in prison back in 2006 for the beating of his son’s grandmother.

What do you think of the Roger Mayweather arrest? How will this affect Floyd Jr.’s fight with Juan Manuel Marquez on September 19? Leave me a comment!

    You know he could have easily killed her. He seems to have a history of hitting women. Very barbaric and sad situation. I hope he gets some kind of jail time and help for his issues.

    That is the clean version of what I am thinking.

    He is a Coward POS and needs to be locked up in a Womens Jail and then we can see how bad he is.

    Why didn’t St. Vil just leave when asked to? DUH! Since Roger did own the condo maybe this wouldn’t have happened? She probably provoked it by arguing. Stupid. They’re both stupid. He’s stupid for strangling her and sh’s stupid for refusing to leave.
    But I do have to say that he’s one hell of a trainer.

    Open and shut case. His property. Her refusal to vacate HIS property. Who is really at fault. Her civil tort will be thrown out.

    I am personally disgusted that it came to blows between a man and a woman. But she did provoke it. She knew she was on his property and refused to leave when he demanded such. He could file criminal charges and a civil tort for tresspassing (which I would do), and then file a tort for illegal dweller.

    Womens’ rights and all that…. but that doesn’t mean they are above the law.

    IT SEEMS THAT HE DOESNT KNOW HOW TO PLACE HIS ANGER. HE GOES INTO A RAGE AND AUTOMATICALLY BECOMES PHYSICAL. COME ON… GRANDMA TOO??? IT DOESN’T MATTER IF HE OWNS THE PROPERTY. IF SHE HAS ESTABLISHED RESIDENCE, HE MUST PROPERLY AND LEGALLY EVICT HER… I WONDER IF CORNELIUS LOCK WAS THERE AND IF SO, WHY DIDNT HE DO ANYTHING…LOCK ROGER UP.

    IT’S HER FAULT, SHE SHOULD HAVE LEFT HIS PROPERTY. SHE GOT JUST WHAT SHE DESIRE.

    Candace Says:

    No its not open and shut case. She didn’t leave because her room mate was paying the rent and she was staying with the room mate. Can you imagine if your landlord tried to tell you who can live in your place with you and you’re paying rent?? Are you serious?! He had no right. As long as he had his money every month he had no right to regulate who stayed there.

    Candace Says:

    SASSYBABY you’re an idiot! No woman deserves to be beat. He almost killed her!

    Everybody who thinks this is stupid! What if it was your mothers or sisters who was beaten by this man? OOOH all of the sudden its a problem then right?

    Just stupid. He needs to be locked up for this!

    Bill Says:

    Put the MF’er away forever! He already beat up grandma so he obviously represents the lowest of life forms. How can anybody support him as a trainer. Another great example of how sick parts of our society are when people give him credit because he’s a great trainer. He’s an animal!
