Report: Floyd Mayweather's car set ablaze during London tour

The van that had ferried Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his entourage was set ablaze as it was parked outside a hotel in England over the weekend, according to The Guardian.

Mayweather was at a fan gathering at the Birmingham's International Convention Centre on Saturday night at the time the vehicle was set on fire. Police reported there were no injuries in the fire outside the Park Regis Hotel.

"Offenders smashed the window of the vehicle, a people carrier, before pouring accelerant inside and setting it alight," the West Midlands Police said in a statement to several outlets. "Inquiries into the fire, which caused extensive damage to the vehicle belonging to a guest, are currently ongoing and police are examining CCTV from the area."

Mayweather is taking part of a multi-day tour of the UK.
