How are we gonna see Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao in May 2012, if he goes to jail for 90 days starting Jan. 6!!?
Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. was sentenced Wednesday to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to reduced battery domestic violence and harassment charges before a Las Vegas judge.
The 34-year-old Mayweather also was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.
The plea deal avoids trial on felony allegations that he hit his ex-girlfriend and threatened two of their children during an argument at her home in September 2010.
Prosecutor Lisa Luzaich told Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa that Mayweather has been in trouble before and hasn’t been punished.
“He just continually gets himself into trouble and he is able to get himself out of it as well,” she said. “Essentially it is because he is who he is and is able to get away with everything.”
“The only thing that’s going to get this man’s attention is incarceration,” the prosecutor said.
Mayweather stood still in a striped olive vest and made no reaction when the judge imposed the sentence. He was told to report to jail on Jan. 6.
