There is a very interesting profile of Josie Harris on USAToday.com about the abuse she suffered while with Floyd Mayweather. In the article titled “Josie Has A Revelation,” she reveals that if it wasn’t for her son saving her from a beating she received from boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, she probably wouldn’t be alive now.
Josie allowed her 14-year-old son with Floyd, Koraun Mayweather, to talk to USA Today and what he said is truly eye opening. The son of the boxing champ said:
“(My dad) said to lock my door and stay in my room,” Koraun said, speaking softly but clearly as he sat beside Harris. “I sat there and thought about what I was going to do next. Just for like a minute.”
Koraun’s first action was to alert Harris’s friend Georgia Parker, who lived in a guesthouse in the back of the property, that his mother was being attacked. Parker did not believe him, Koraun said:
“So I ran and I tried to go through the front door to go to the (security) gate,” Koraun said. “But then his friend (McNair) came through the door and blocked off the stairway for me to go through.
“Then I went back into my room and locked the door and then ran back out my bathroom and then hopped over the gate and went to the main entrance gate. I just told (the guard) that my mom was getting hurt and to call the ambulance and the police.”
In the article Josie shares stories of that awful night and you can watch a video account of her retelling the horrors of her story.
