Floyd Mayweather Sr.'s lawyer pled not guilty on his behalf on Jan. 25 to battery charges stemming from an alleged fight outside of T-Mobile Arena on Sept. 17.

The arrest report says Mayweather Sr., his girlfriend, the accuser and her husband attended the Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez fight at T-Mobile Arena.

After the conclusion of the boxing match, the accuser and Mayweather Sr. began arguing while heading back to Floyd Sr.'s vehicle. The argument allegedly led to Mayweather Sr. stopping the car, dragging the woman out of the vehicle by her leg, and then punching her in that leg before leaving the scene.

The woman reportedly had scratches on her left arm and back, along with a bruise on her thigh from Mayweather Sr. striking her.

Mayweather Sr. turned himself on Jan. 23 after a warrant had been issued for his arrest.

Mayweather Sr.'s warrant was canceled and his rep told TMZ.com that he's totally innocent and never laid a hand on the alleged victim.

Mayweather Sr.'s next court case is scheduled for March 27.
