*It would appear that someone has a problem with Floyd Mayweather Jr. We came to that conclusion because somebody lobbed a Molotov cocktail into a TMT van belonging to his entourage Saturday night in the UK.
The incident happened while Mayweather was speaking inside the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, UK.
The semi-retired boxer is currently on his “Undefeated” tour, where he’s speaking in front of audiences and doing meet-and-greets with fans.
A rep for the Ladywood Fire Station — which responded to the fire told TMZ that 2 individuals threw a Molotov cocktail inside the van after breaking a window with a brick.
The van was connected to Mayweather’s entourage and the team handling his promotions while he’s in the UK. Also, Mayweather sources say the van was not actually owned by him.
The case is now in the hands of local authorities.

The fire bombing in Manchester is the latest “bad thing” to happen to Mayweather. A week ago, while the Las Vegas resident was in Los Angeles celebrating his 40th birthday, an intruder broke into his mansion and got away with several high-dollar items, according to law enforcement officials.
The vandals escaped with $150,000 worth of items, according to reports. Mayweather’s home is in the Southern Highlands community.
“We still don’t know what exactly was taken,” officer Danny Cordero of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s office of public information told USA Today. “We haven’t gotten a list from the victim of what items were taken.”
The robbery is under investigation.
In other news, Mayweather is looking to get back in the ring with UFC star Conor McGregor. The 49-0 welterweight champion last stepped into the ring on Sept. 12, 2015, when he beat Andre Berto.
