I have no idea if this is true or not

July 17, 2008. Say it ain't so Floyd. MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that Floyd and fellow boxer Edner "Cherry Bomb" Cherry got into a fight at a Las Vegas club. Word on the street is that Edner was one of Floyd's sparring partners and had a problem over some back pay. And that when he confronted Floyd in the club, the two got into it and Floyd ended up asleep.

We put out word to Floyd's peeps for a comment. So far we haven't heard anything

If so he's 39 -1 now huh LOL

I heard this too (from a different source), it didnt say he ended up asleep, it did say he was snuffed. You cant hide the hate CJ, you sound happy.

In the ring Floyd would beat the shitt out of Cherry, out of the ring bare knuckle you never know. Sucker punching is preferable in non sanctioned fight I doubt they went toe to toe while Mayweather wasnt drunk.

I thought Cherry was a nice quiet guy? If he did get hit, good, that was for diluting the race card.

Edner Cherry in a Bar Fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr Completely Untrue

By Bob Carroll

Earlier last night, a story surfaced of fisticuffs between WBC USNBC Lightweight champion Edner ‘Cherry Bomb’ Cherry and retired World Champion Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr. The story stated that Cherry was a sparring partner for Mayweather, the two met in a Las Vegas nightclub, had words and ended with Mayweather getting knocked out. This story is getting some play in the media, and makes for great publicity for Edner Cherry. The problem with the story is it is completely false.

When I first learned of the story, I had to laugh, knowing that this would be the last thing a man of Edner Cherry’s character would involve himself in. To try to clarify this story, I immediately started to make calls to the people who are involved with Cherry and his boxing career. I was able to speak to a source very close to Cherry, who informed me that although this story seems to have drawn attention to Edner, it is completely false. The source went on to say that Cherry has never been a sparring partner for Mayweather and you would be much more likely to see Cherry in a church than you would a casino in Las Vegas.

What I can only describe as trashy gossip website called Mediatakeout.com “broke” the factious story sometime yesterday morning, and the story spread through the internet like wildfire. My opinion is the story was a ploy by what looks like a gossip website trying to draw in readers to its site. A quick glance at the healines listed on that site, Mediatakeout’s stories seem to be as credible as anything you read in the nation scandal magazines that report of aliens impregnating celebrities or Elvis Presley being alive and sharing an apartment with Bigfoot in the Bahamas.

Believe me or not I'm glad to hear that this story is untrue. Isnt there any recourse for people who have their names slandered in this way?

Moments ago, Floyd Mayweather Jr's advisor Leonard Ellerbe informed Boxingtalk.com that Mayweather was not knocked out by Edner Cherry. "That's the most ridiculous garbage I've ever heard, people should already know trash like this isn't true."
-Ellerbe.......
