An SUV in the motorcade of undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. hit a guy aboard a motorcycle on Saturday night.

According to TMZ, the boxer and his convoy were headed home from the One% nightclub in Kansas City when the accident happened at around 3 a.m.

Though it was still unclear if Mayweather was aboard the said SUV, the video releaseed by TMZ showed that he was on the scene on the accident while the biker was attended to by people on the street.

An emergency vehicle reportedly rushed to the place after the incident but there have been no known reports about the condition of the biker.

A witness on the scene told TMZ that the biker was ejected from his motorcycle after it appeared to have clipped the back end of the SUV.

TMZ added that photos they obtained showed that the boxer was on the passenger seat of an SUV and he was not driving.

The American fighter is known to own a great fleet of cars including, a $100,000-worth Jeep Wrangler converted into an off-road supercar.

The accident came after he got stripped of the welterweight title he won from Manny Pacquiao after slugging it out inside the ring last May.

According to Reuters, Mayweather failed to comply with the rules of the World Boxing Organization (WBO).

The same report said the undefeated American boxer "missed a deadline by which he had to pay a $200,000 sanctioning fee from the fight and vacate the junior middleweight title he also held."

The WBO maintained that that it is against boxers holding world titles in multiple weight classes and asked Mayweather to choose which title he would keep.

"The WBO World Championship Committee is allowed no other alternative but to cease to recognize Mr. Floyd Mayweather, Jr. as the WBO Welterweight Champion of the World and vacate his title, for failing to comply with our WBO Regulations of World Championship Contests," the WBO said in a statement released to Reuters.

Mayweather's camp has reportedly appealed the decision of the WBO and asked if he could retain the title.

He also posted a lengthy message on his Instagram account thanking his fans and announcing that his September fight will push through.

"Throwing stones is a sign of weakness- I choose to be strong. To My fans, your loyalty and support has given me the best 20 years I could ask for and while at the top, I plan to go out on top....see you back in the ring September 12th!" Mayweather said.
