TMZ Sports is reporting one of Mayweather’s customized The Money Team vans was torched as he spoke at an event called the Undefeated tour at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, England. Mayweather is on a promotional tour in the U.K.
Allegedly two individuals threw a Molotov cocktail inside the vehicle after breaking one of the windows with a brick. The individuals responsible for the arson attack allegedly set the van on fire, and immediately fled the scene. No word from Mayweather as of yet and the case is being handled by local authorities.
This incident happening in the U.K. is interesting considering all the talk around a potential Mayweather v. McGregor fight. McGregor is an Irishman and will garner a lot of support from the U.K. Imagine the type of nationalistic behavior that could ensue if this fight actually happens…
