Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s bench trial in Las Vegas over an alleged November incident with a security guard has been postponed until late April.
Mayweather didn't appear this morning in court for his scheduled misdemeanor battery trial. But his attorney, Karen Winckler, asked Judge Janiece Marshall for the trial to be continued.
Marshall set the trial date for 9 a.m. April 25 in Las Vegas Justice Court.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Roy Nelson said outside the courtroom that he couldn't comment on whether there were negotiations going on with his office concerning the case.
The battery charge stems from a Nov. 15 confrontation over parking tickets between the undefeated champion and a security guard outside Mayweather's Southern Highlands home.
Mayweather faces a six-month jail sentence and a $1,000 fine if convicted on that charge.
Meanwhile, Mayweather will have a preliminary hearing next month on eight misdemeanor and felony charges stemming from a Sept. 9 dispute with his former girlfriend, Josie Harris. That hearing is set for 9:30 a.m. March 10.
Mayweather faces charges of felony coercion, grand larceny and robbery, and misdemeanor domestic battery and harassment after allegedly beating his ex-girlfriend and stealing her cell phone during an argument in front of their three children.
The coercion counts stem from Mayweather allegedly threatening to "beat" two of his children if they called 911 or left the house, according to the complaint.
During the Sept. 9 argument with Harris, Mayweather allegedly grabbed her hair and threw her to the floor, the complaint stated.
He also allegedly threatened to kill Harris and her boyfriend or make her boyfriend "disappear," according to the criminal complaint.
Mayweather is out on bail and could face up to 34 years in state prison if he's convicted of all charges.
Mayweather is considered one of the sport's top performers, with a record of 41-0 and 25 knockouts. He goes by the nickname "Money" and earned more than $20 million in May from his fight in Las Vegas against "Sugar" Shane Mosley.
