Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

A report at BoxingScene.com, via the Las Vegas Sun, says that once again a Floyd Mayweather Jr. criminal case has been postponed in the Vegas courts, this time until September 1.

This is the less serious of the two court cases against Mayweather at this time, as this is the case where Mayweather is alleged to have poked a security guard at his gated community in the face late last year. The 34-year-old boxer is also scheduled to be in court on Thursday for the far more serious case involving domestic violence against the mother of his children, where he faces both misdemeanor and felony charges, eight of them in total.

Mayweather did not appear in court for this most recent date, as his attorney represented him and asked for a continuance, which was granted.

Remember when Floyd Mayweather Jr. used to do that whole boxing for a living thing occasionally? Now all he does is get court dates pushed back, gamble on what the Thunder will do by halftime, get booed when he shows up at fights (while forcing a fake smile about how much he enjoys it, as 50 Cent sits stone-faced, and they both remember the days when they were truly relevant instead of aging poster boys for eras gone by), and post on Twitter about his iPhone app. When he used to box, man, that was a beautiful thing sometimes.
