John Gotti III has been suspended for six months due to an in-ring altercation with Floyd Mayweather Jr. 

On Sunday, June 11, Mayweather continued his boxing exhibition tour by taking on the grandson of legendary mobster John Gotti. During the sixth round, controversy struck when the referee, Kenny Bayless, ended the match due to excessive clinching and trash talk.

Gotti III was furious about the decision and decided to push Bayless out of the way to attack Mayweather. Shortly after, the ring was filled with dozens of people fighting, creating a massive brawl. Several days later, the Florida athletic commission released this statement: 

“The DBPR Florida Athletic Commission took immediate action the evening of Sunday, June 11, and suspended John Gotti III for six months.”

The situation between Gotti III and Mayweather continued to escalate backstage, with multiple fights going viral on social media. The MMA veteran and his family have threatened the boxing legend several times online, leading to a demand for a rematch.
