Boxing sensation Floyd Mayweather Jr. could soon end his career as an undefeated champion, again. Only this time around his retirement plan might include “three hots and a cot.”

An updated criminal complaint report was filed on Mayweather last Thursday relating to his recent arrest for allegedly beating an ex-girlfriend and stealing her cell phone.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger added two felony coercion charges and one felony robbery charge to Mayweather’s criminal complaint. He was initially charged for grand larceny just a week earlier stemming from the same Sept. 9 dispute. The 33-year-old boxer also faces one misdemeanor domestic battery and three harassment charges.

According to police, Mayweather allegedly beat and threatened to kill his ex and mother of his children, Josie Harris, then took her phone following the altercation. If Mayweather is convicted on all eight charges, he could face up to 34 years in jail.

Mayweather’s attorney, Richard Wright, told The Associated Press he hadn’t seen the new complaint report and denied all wrongdoing on his client’s behalf. If Mayweather, who was released on a $3,000 bail and is expected to meet in court on Nov. 9, does beat the charges, it won’t be the first time.

Harris filed domestic abuse charges against Mayweather in 2003, but he was acquitted in court two years later. According to reports, Harris retracted her complaints in court, claiming she lied to police because she thought Mayweather was cheating on her.
