It sure hasn't been easy for Floyd Mayweather Jr. to stay out of the spotlight since his controversial win over Victor Ortiz this month.


Floyd Mayweather took care of Victor Ortiz via controversial fourth-round knockout. If you missed any of the action we've got you covered with the best shots from the fight.

On Tuesday, the boxing champion ignited a Twitter war with Ortiz and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, calling the duo "b*tches" for questioning his tactics during the Sept. 17 knockout victory in Las Vegas.

Now, more trouble could he headed Mayweather's way after he allegedly parked his new car in two handicapped spaces on Wednesday, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

An eyewitness told the newspaper that Mayweather pulled up to a Bank of America in the southwest valley of Las Vegas in a white gull-wing Mercedes-Benz and parked at an angle in the two handicapped spots.

The source also said that two men confronted Mayweather, who lives in a $12 million mansion near the bank, for his parking choice.

The men and Mayweather exchanged some heated words, according to the source, before the boxer walked into the bank with a sequined satchel to make a deposit of about 20 packets of $100 bills. The newspaper's source said Mayweather deposited around $200,000.

Police records indicate they were called to the bank at 11:45 a.m. It is not clear, however, if police had contact with Mayweather, who improved to 42-0 by knocking out Ortiz.

This isn't the first time Mayweather has found himself in hot water for parking in a handicapped parking space. In July 2008, a photograph was taken of one of the boxer's sports cars parked in a spot for the disabled.
