Iyanna Mayweather, the daughter of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is set to be sentenced for stabbing a woman. The incident had transpired a couple of years ago in Cypress. Iyanna stabbed a woman several times in the arm after a fight in April 2020, according to court documents.
Iyanna Mayweather was pleaded guilty
Iyanna pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon back in April. As part of the plea agreement, she would avoid prison, but prosecutors are suggesting six years of probation. The 22-year-old had celebrated her birthday three weeks ago. She posted the photo below on Instagram wearing a shirt with her mugshot on it.
In April 2020, police responded to an outside disturbance outside of Houston around 7 p.m. The then 19-year-old Iyanna got into a fight with another woman and stabbed her several times. The altercation stemmed from a verbal argument, which escalated into a physical fight.
Mayweather admitted in a Houston court to “unlawfully, intentionally and unknowingly” causing injury “with a knife” to Lapattra Lashai Jacobs, according to court documents obtained by NBC News.
Jacobs had also sued Mayweather, alleging physical pain and mental anguish, physical impairment, medical costs, loss of earnings and disfigurement. The suit seeks unspecified damages. Jacobs was hospitalized, Harris County Constable’s Capt. Jonathan Zitzmann said at the time. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries and underwent surgery, he said.
