Zinni Media is accusing Floyd Mayweather of swindling them out of millions of dollars, and they want it back.

The Nigerian company booked the champ to make five appearances in Ghana and Nigeria for June 2017 and agreed to pay him $375,000. Floyd even made a promotional video confirming his appearance, and the company sent a $210,000 advance. The company is claiming that he never showed up and that left them in a hole.

They re-connected and agreed to have him come back six months later in December 2017 for $550,000. They were allegedly told that the original advance can be credited towards the new booking.

Zinni requested for him to make another video but he failed to honor the request or give a refund.

Consequently, the company is suing for $2 million claiming that their reputation is damaged and they were scammed.
