While Floyd Mayweather took on Marcos Maidana on Saturday night, the boxer’s ex-fiancée Shantel Jackson attended Face Forward’s annual fundraising gala took on a more important fight, the fight against domestic violence.

“I want to be another voice for women who have gone through domestic violence,” she told HipHollywood while on the red carpet.

Earlier this month, the model announced that she was suing Mayweather for assault, battery, invasion of privacy, defamation and false imprisonment. Court documents, obtained by HipHollywood, reveal the shocking and disturbing details about the former couple’s toxic relationship and for Shantel, reliving the nightmare in the public eye has not been easy.

“It’s definitely hard but I just want women or anyone who has gone through domestic violence to know it’s never too late to speak out about the situation and you should never feel trapped,” she explained.

Jackson stood alongside her famous lawyer, Gloria Allred who praised the model for being so courageous.

“I am very proud of Shantel for wanting to be here to support battered women and to help encourage them to have a voice,” Allred said.

While on the red carpet, the night’s attendees also shared their reaction to the scandal surrounding former Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice and wife, Janay Palmer.

“That was something that was uncalled for, for anybody, but especially a professional athlete that lives his life hurting people,” boxing champion Sugar Shane Mosley said.

Face Forward is an incredible foundation that works with advocates around the nation to identify victims of domestic violence who are working towards recovery yet carry the physical evidence of past abuse. Audrey Mabrey, a FF patient also shared with us her thoughts regarding the video that shows Rice knocking his then fiancée unconscious.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
