LAS VEGAS (AP) — Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has a new date for an evidence hearing in a year-old felony Las Vegas domestic violence case.
The 34-year-old boxer didn’t appear Thursday while his attorneys met with a Las Vegas judge and prosecutors and rescheduled the hearing for Dec. 21.
Both sides blamed scheduling conflicts for the postponement.
Mayweather is accused of hitting and threatening his ex-girlfriend, stealing her cell phone and threatening two of their children during an argument at her home in September 2010. He could face 34 years in prison if convicted.
His lawyers have denied wrongdoing on his behalf.
Mayweather is due for trial Nov. 4 in a separate misdemeanor battery case in a confrontation with a homeowner association security guard last November outside Mayweather’s home.
He has pleaded not guilty.
