Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather was involved in a "verbal altercation" with an unnamed woman at the residence of Melissa Brim, the mother of Mayweather's daughter, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The incident took place around 2 a.m. on Sept. 9 at the home of Brim, where police responded to the scene following a 911 call placed at the home.

Mayweather reportedly left the scene before the police showed up with a personal item belonging to the unknown woman, but the item was later returned by one of Mayweather's associates and charges were not filed.

According the Review-Journal report, Mayweather has had two violent incidents with Brim in the past.

The first was in February of 2001, where Mayweather hit Brim in the jaw with a car door before punching her in the face and body. The second incident took place five months after the February attack, where Mayweather ended up hitting Brim in the neck.

"Money" was charged with two counts of domestic battery for the two incidents. In 2002, he plead guilty to both counts in addition to a separate count not connected with the previous two. Mayweather received a six-month suspended jail sentence, a $3,000 fine, two days house arrest and 48 hours of community service after accepting a plea agreement.

Mayweather was just released from jail on Aug. 3 (per ESPN.com) after spending two months behind bars for a separate domestic battery charge against Josie Harris, the mother of two of his three children.

Mayweather is currently on year-long probation as result of the domestic battery charge, to which the terms include staying out of trouble, according to the Review-Journal report.

Although it is not known at this time if the alleged incident will affect his probation, it is possible Mayweather could end up back in jail. Having any kind of altercation with a woman, especially at the residence of a woman he has a violent past with, can't bode well for "Money" and his probation.

If Mayweather is put back in jail, his career could be in limbo, as any more time away from being able to train on a regular basis could be detrimental. If this is the case, we may never see "Money" fight at the level the boxing world is used to seeing.

If Mayweather wants to guarantee that incidents like the ones in his past don't ever occur again, he would be wise to steer clear of both Brim and Harris and anyone associated with them.
