Floyd Mayweater Jr. defeated Miguel Cotto in an epic 12-round fight for the WBA super welterweight championship in Las Vegas this weekend, proving that flashy and tacky can sometimes beat blue collar. Mayweather entered the ring with Justin Bieber, 50 Cent and WWE star Triple H in his entourage. Cotto entered with his son. In the end, Mayweather’s arm was raised.
An arm wasn’t the only thing rising that evening, however. Cameras showed Mayweather’s current girlfriend, sitting ringside in an extremely revealing dress. Almost immediately, Twitter blew up with people talking about the stunning woman they just saw. HBO boxing Commentator Jim Lampley was almost speachless, saying only, “There’s Floyd Mayweather’s current girlfriend, Miss Jackson, a star on 24/7 and.. uh.. that dress.. is star quality.”
Her name is Shantel Jackson. She may be Mayweather’s girlfriend, or she may be his fiancee. It depends on who you ask.
Below, we have video of what caused such a stir among the pay per view audience, as well as some pictures of Ms. Jackson.
