Those who know boxing great Floyd Mayweather knows better than to use his name or brand without his consent and for New Orleans Wine Bistro and an over zealous event promoter, the boxer is hoping for a knockout decision from a federal court. TMZ.com is reporting that Money Mayweather wants a judge to rule in his favor on an infringement case.

According to the federal lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — Mayweather claims The Wine Bistro heavily advertised that Floyd and The Money Team would be hosting the February 1 bash.  In case you don’t know, The Money Team is a nickname for Floyd’s posse, which includes Justin Bieber, Lil’ Kim, 50Cent and Miss Jackson.

But here’s the deal … Floyd says he never agreed to appear at The Wine Bistro — nor did The Money Team — and the bar went crazy advertising on Facebook, YouTube and flyers.  Floyd is pissed that the bar profited off his name and worries his fans will be pissed because he was a no-show.
