Floyd Mayweather Jr. has banned Rachel Nichols and Michelle Beadle from his big fight.

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.

Both television reporters and commentators have extensively covered Mayweather’s history of domestic violence.
