Rachel Nichols of CNN and Michelle Beadle of ESPN and HBO posted on Twitter that Floyd Mayweather’s camp has banned them from covering Saturday night’s fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
Kelly Swanson of Mayweather’s public relations team denied the claims.
Beadle’s credential later was reinstated, but she left Las Vegas on Saturday morning when she originally was told about the ban. Beadle said she would not attend the fight.
Nichols’ status remained unclear.
Both television reporters and commentators have extensively covered Mayweather’s history of domestic violence.
