Back in 2015 the Australian government officially banned Floyd Mayweather from entering their land. Mayweather’s visa was officially denied due to his history of abusing allegedly five different women.
“His ban confirmed by Assistant Minister for Immigration, Senator Michaelia Cash.
‘A visa has not been granted in this case,’ she said.
‘The Government takes very seriously its role in protecting the Australian community from the risk of harm by non-citizens who engage in criminal conduct and/or conduct that is of serious concern.
‘Visa applicants must demonstrate they are of good character, as required under the character test in the Migration Act 1958, before they are granted a visa.
‘I am aware of Mr Mayweather’s background – both in terms of his professional success as well as his criminal history – as has been extensively reported in the United States and Australian media.”
‘In making character decisions, a range of factors are taken into account. This can include consideration of both a person’s criminal history as well as their general conduct over a continuum of time, to reach an assessment as to whether they are of good character.” reported The Guardian.

3. Mayweather Threatens To Shoot Ex
After being released from prison, Floyd got into big trouble again after his ex-lover sued and revealed nasty details about their incident.
“In the first week of April, she took the belongings from her Vegas house and put them in three storage lockers in Glendale, Calif.
This enraged Mayweather who bragged to her that he had found out which moving company she had used and the address of the storage lockers.
He later confessed he had arranged for one of the lockers to be broken into – and took belongings worth more than $1million from it, the papers allege.
Mayweather went to ‘great lengths’ to try woo Shantel back – and she moved back to Las Vegas on April 19 in a private jet Mayweather had sent for her.
But within days the couple began arguing and when Shantel threatened to leave again, angry Mayweather launched a “terrifying and humiliating” attack on her at gunpoint – refusing to let her leave his house, the papers claim.
The boxer grabbed his fiancee, ‘bent her arm, restrained her and pointed a gun at her foot, asking: “Which toe do you want me to shoot?”’ reported the Daily Mail.
