Floyd Mayweather Jr To Be Released From Jail
Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be released from jail in Las Vegas as early as Thursday night, a Las Vegas police spokesman said. The unbeaten world super-welterweight champion, has been jailed inside Clark County Detention Center since June 1 for a 2010 domestic violence crime against the mother of his three children.
He was sentenced to 90 days in jail but was eligible for early release based on good behavior. Jail officials informed Mayweather’s attorney that additional inmates might accelerate the boxer’s release.
Mayweather (43-0, 26 knockouts) had his jail sentence postponed from earlier this year so he could fight Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto, whom Mayweather, 35, defeated by unanimous decision May 5 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
It is unclear whom Mayweather will fight next, or when.
