While Manny Pacquiao makes headlines for boxing, would-be rival Floyd Mayweather Jr. is back in the news again tonight, as TMZ reports that new allegations have come against the former four-division titlist.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... a private security guard who was patrolling inside Floyd's gated community drove up to Floyd's house a few hours ago to confront the boxer about a parking situation.

We're told the security guard rolled down his window to talk to Floyd ... and that's when Floyd allegedly unleashed his finger -- striking the dude in the face.

Cops were called to the scene and knocked on Floyd's door -- but we're told the boxer refused to open up.

TMZ says that sources have told them that police will turn the case over to the D.A., who will decide whether or not to press charges.

Mayweather was recently hit with a restraining order and pleaded not guilty to eight charges in his ongoing domestic violence case.

In happy Mayweather family news, Floyd's father is doing fine after a health scare that landed him in the hospital last week. Chris Robinson reported on Sunday at BoxingScene.com that "Big Floyd" is back home and feeling better. The elder Mayweather also had thoughts on last week's Antonio Margarito/Brandon Rios camp video controversy. Floyd Sr. has attracted his share of criticism over the years for trash talk and sometimes outlandish statements, but said, "I would never take nothing like that and throw it out there like that to Freddie or Pac Man. That’s not a good thing, that’s real bad. I thought it was cruel and ugly."

Best wishes to the 57-year-old Floyd Sr., and here's hoping he keeps feeling better, and we'll have more on the situation with Jr. if anything comes of it.
