LAS VEGAS -- A Nevada judge has postponed until Jan. 24 a trial for boxing trainer Roger Mayweather on felony charges that he attacked a female boxer at an apartment he owned.

Clark County District Court Judge Valerie Adair in Las Vegas postponed the trial for a second time.

Trial for the 49-year-old trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr. was originally delayed in August due to a scheduling conflict.

Roger Mayweather has pleaded not guilty to battery charges stemming from an August 2009 scuffle with 26-year-old Melissa St. Vil.

St. Vil alleges Mayweather punched and choked her until she was nearly unconscious before police arrived at the apartment where she was staying in Las Vegas.

The charges carry a possible 10-year prison sentence. Mayweather is free on $13,000 bail.
