Floyd Mayweather prepares to take the stage for the weigh-in before his big fight with Conor McGregor in Las Vegas on August 26.
A bodyguard for Las Vegas resident and champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. was shot on Monday in Atlanta, according to multiple reports.
A police spokesman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that it appears that Mayweather's three-vehicle convoy was targeted. Mayweather was not injured in the shooting.
The bodyguard, Gregory La Rosa, was shot in the leg. He was treated at a hospital in Atlanta and released. La Rosa has worked for Mayweather since 2014.
Mayweather and his group was traveling from a club to a luxury hotel around 2 a.m. Monday when another vehicle pulled alongside and opened fire.
Mayweather was in Atlanta to promote his Showtime-televised triplehead in Las Vegas on Saturday night. He has not commented about the incident on any of his social media accounts.
Police are still looking for the shooter.
