TMZ has documents detailing the case against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the state of Nevada, and the superstar boxer has been charged with eight charges in total -- four felonies, and four misdemeanors.

The felony charges are for two counts of coercion, robbery, and grand larceny. The misdemeanors are for battery constituting domestic violence and three counts of harassment. Mayweather's sons, Zion and Karaun Mayweather, are named in the coercion and harassment charges, as their father is alleged to have threatened to "beat" them if they contacted authorities over the alleged battery of their mother, Josie Harris.

If Mayweather were convicted of all charges, he could face up to 28 years in prison. Though that is, of course, highly unlikely, the fact of the matter is that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is in actual trouble at this point, and this case is not something to be ignored or swept under the rug. Mayweather has had past run-ins with the law, but may be in his hottest water this time.

Also, Chicago Bulls guard C.J. Watson has denied that he has a romantic relationship with Harris. Watson's name surfaced a couple of days ago in connection with the case, as Harris allegedly told Mayweather that she and Watson were romantically involved.
