Josie Harris and her son, Koraun Mayweather, have gone public about the night undefeated boxing kingpin Floyd Mayweather Jr. assaulted her back in 2010, an incident that was brought to the attention of law enforcement after Koraun -- then nine -- snuck out of the house to get help.

From their conversation with USA Today (via Bad Left Hook):

To this day, Harris is unable to hold back tears when she recalls Koraun's actions that night.

"I just thanked him because I didn't know how long it was going to continue to go on," she said. "And I just feel like if he wouldn't have gone to get the help that I may not even be able to be sitting here."

Koraun says recalling the attack on his mother still makes him angry, yet the most difficult part to cope with has been Mayweather's refusal to admit to his actions.

"He is a coward," Koraun said, and he hugged his mom.

The incident -- one of seven, according to Harris -- cost Mayweather 90 days in the slammer.

Unfortunately, his troubles don't end there. "Money" was slapped with a lawsuit by ex-fiancée Shantel Jackson back in February in Los Angeles, California. The allegations include multiple assaults, including one at gunpoint, as well as emotional distress, among others. Mayweather's response? "Only God can judge me."

God -- and the Los Angeles County Court.
