A judge granted a delay for boxing trainer Roger Mayweather’s arraignment on felony charges that he beat and choked a female boxer at a Las Vegas apartment last August.
Clark County District Court Hearing Master Kevin Williams made it clear Tuesday that he was unhappy the 48-year-old Mayweather didn’t show for his scheduled 1:30 p.m. PST arraignment on coercion, battery-strangulation and battery causing substantial bodily harm charges.
Mayweather’s lawyer, Jack Buchanan, says Mayweather will plead not guilty.
The judge agreed to a Thursday morning time after Buchanan said Mayweather keeps a tight afternoon training schedule at a Las Vegas gym.
Among other fighters, Mayweather trains his nephew, Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Roger Mayweather is currently free on $13,000 bail.
