Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has made his reputation as a boxer and a respected businessman through years of hard work and sacrifice. However, it seemed that his sons were not too keen on upholding the values their father instilled in them.

This was proved after his sons Zion and Koraun Mayweather, tried to trick a cab driver into chauffeuring them for days while shortening his wages and breaking their agreed-upon promises. Back in 2021, before Mayweather’s exhibition bout with Logan Paul, the two sons hired a Florida cab driver and rode around in his vehicle for days but did not pay him the agreed amount.

Floyd Mayweather’s kids once scammed out a cab driver

It was reported that the driver first picked up the two brothers at the Fontainebleau Hotel. Moreover, the driver said he did so in exchange for over $2,000,  a glove signed by Mayweather, and a free ticket to the fight against Logan Paul. However, he was not paid nor given a signed glove of any kind.

In addition, he revealed that he was sent videos of cash from the two children who promised to pay him his dues. He also revealed that the brothers would ride in his car for over 13 hours a day. Eventually, the driver filed a police report anonymously.

The driver later claimed that he had gotten $700 for his troubles, which was far less than the agreed amount of $2000.
