As Floyd Mayweather gears up for his super bout with Manny Pacquiao, a new report has surfaced alleging he assaulted his “adopted” son, according to Las Vegas Sun.

The 38-year-old pound for pound king allegedly choked the teenage boy, who he raised as is own in his Las Vegas mansion on Halloween night last year.

The complaint obtained by The Sun indicated that the 19-year-old Devion Cromwell, 19, reported the incident to police.

He said that an altercation ensued, and Floyd Mayweather held him in a “rear naked choke.”

However, the teen is hesitant to press battery charges against Floyd because the fighter provides for Cromwell and his mother, Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend Melissa Brim, mother to the boxer’s daughter.

One relative told The Sun,“We want for Devion to do what’s right and bring (Floyd) to justice, He controls our whole family through fear and money. It’s only a matter of time before it happens again — or, God forbid, anything worse.”

Mayweather and Brim dated back in the late 1990s. He was found guilty on two counts of domestic battery against Brim in 2002, one of Mayweather’s issues he’s experienced, out of the ring.

Despite their rocky history, Cromwell, his mom and Mayweather’s 14-year-old daughter Iyanna, all live in a home provided by the prize fighter.

Floyd showed up at the house last Halloween unannounced and ordered the teen’s friends out of the house. The teen lashed out, telling Mayweather, “You’re not my father!” according to The Sun.

After the incident, Cromwell went to police with two witnesses; who corroborated his account. However, he has until Oct. 31 of 2015, to press charges; a Las Vegas police spokesman told The Sun.

“The victim understands who to contact, if he chooses to press charges,” the spokesman said.
