Not one but five knockouts cost a pro fighter his purse — stuffed with $145,000 in cash and jewelry — at a Flatiron nightclub, police said Sunday.
Professional pugilist Jermall Charlo, 27, was partying with his assistant and the femmes fatale at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in Manhattan early Sunday morning when he got into a “physical altercation” with someone around 3 a.m., according to police sources.
The assistant handed one of the women the bag — containing $40,000 in cash and $115,000 worth of bling — to hold during the unsanctioned sparring match, sources said.
But when the tiff ended and the Texan light middleweight returned to his seat — he learned the woman had absconded with his pricey pack along with her four pals, according to cops.
Charlo, who boasts a 26-0 record in the ring, had been at a boxing show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center earlier Saturday night, according to a Boxing Scene report. He had been scheduled to fight Hugo Centeno Jr., but their bout was postponed due to Centeno suffering a rib injury.
Police are now on the hunt for the bag thief and her entourage, who were all caught on security camera leaving the club.
