Prompted by ESPN's Sarah Spain, some people are choosing to donate the money they would have spent on the Mayweather–Pacquiao​ fight to different domestic violence organizations.

Mayweather has been involved in seven domestic abuse cases against five women that have resulted in arrests or citations, according to a report from Deadspin. In 2011, he served two months of a three-month sentence after pleading guilty to domestic violence charges involving a former girlfriend.

Police have also been called in other situations in which charges were not filed. In a Sept. 9, 2010, incident, Mayweather struck the mother of three of his four children. His son, Koraun, was 10 years old at the time and detailed his account of the incident in a statement to police.
