Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been stripped of the welter weight world titile he won after the most lucrative fight in boxing history aginst Manny Pacquio
According to the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Mayweather had missed the deadline by which he had to pay up a sanctioning fee from the fight and vacate the junior middleweight title that he also held. The WBO’s stand is that its against the rules for a boxer to hold a world title in multiple weight classes and the boxer had to indicate which title he would retain.
Mayweather, who finished on top on all three scorecards in the most grossing fight , had until 2030 GMT to advise the WBO of his position and currently has two weeks to launch an appeal.
