Floyd Mayweather Stripped Of Welterweight Belt

Floyd Mayweather Junior has been stripped of the welterweight belt he won by beating Manny Pacquiao in May. The American, who won on a unanimous points decision, missed the deadline by which he had to pay a 128-thousand pounds sanctioning fee from the fight and vacate the junior middleweight title he also held. It’s against WBO rules for boxers to hold world titles in multiple weight classes and Mayweather had to indicate which weight division he would retain.
