The WBO stripped Floyd Mayweather of his welterweight world title on Monday (July 6), due to his failure to comply with the organization's rules.
The boxing star claimed the WBO welterweight title on May 2nd, when he outpointed Manny Pacquiao in the richest fight in boxing history.

Following the slew of women who've claimed Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them over the past several decades, new details emerge in the controversy.
The actor apparently admitted, in 2005, that he got quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with.
In documents obtained the AP, Cosby admitted to giving the sedative to at least one woman and "other people" in the past.
The release of the unsealed documents comes from the deposition in a sexual abuse lawsuit filed by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand — the first in a number of sexual abuse lawsuits against him. It was later settled under confidential terms in 2006.
