Floyd Mayweather, Jr., who holds the second-best record in American boxing history, has won a round against his ex-girlfriend.
But the fight is not over. Shantel Jackson will get another shot at the title holder, who still faces claims that he beat, assaulted, falsely imprisoned, and otherwise traumatized her.
In an unpublished decision, a California appeals court said Jackson may not pursue defamation and invasion of privacy claims against the boxer. Those claims are barred by anti-SLAPP laws, the Second District Court of Appeals said, but the other causes of action survived.
