Floyd Mayweather addressed his own history of domestic abuse in light of the Ray Rice situation when the boxer appeared on last night’s segment of "Unguarded" on CNN ahead of his Marcos Maidana rematch. 

Host Rachel Nichols asked the undefeated boxing champ, who had initially come out sympathetically toward Rice Rice’s assault of his then-girlfriend in an elevator, why fans should root for Mayweather when he’s been linked to domestic violence headlines of his own.

"Everything has been allegations," he said. "Nothing has been proven. So, you know, that’s life." 

When Nichols pointed out there had been documentation in his case — "In the incident you went to jail for the mother of your three children did show some bruising, a concussion when she went to the hospital" — Mayweather responded, "Once again, no pictures. Just hearsay and allegations. And I signed a plea bargain. So once again, not true."

"Are we really supposed to believe all the women are lying, including the incidents when there were witnesses, like your own kids?" Nichols persisted. 

"Everybody is entitled to their own opinion," Mayweather responded. "When it is all said and done, only God can judge me."
