In an interview with USA Today, the undefeated five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s eldest son Koraun calls his dad a “coward” for denying the beating of his mother, Josie Harris back in 2010.
“(My dad) said to lock my door and stay in my room,” Koraun said, speaking softly but clearly as he sat beside Harris. “I sat there and thought about what I was going to do next. Just for like a minute.
“Koraun’s first action was to alert Harris’ friend Georgia Parker, who lived in a guesthouse in the back of the property, that his mother was being attacked. Parker did not believe him, Koraun said.
“So I ran and I tried to go through the front door to go to the (security) gate,” Koraun said.
“But then his friend (McNair) came through the door and blocked off the stairway for me to go through.
“Then I went back into my room and locked the door and then ran back out my bathroom and then hopped over the gate and went to the main entrance gate. I just told (the guard) that my mom was getting hurt and to call the ambulance and the police.”
According to Harris, she suffered physical abuse from the boxer on six occasions, including the most controversial incident that in 2012 that resulted Mayweather to be imprisoned for two months.
