Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is being released from jail early. The undefeated boxer, who was given a three month sentence on domestic battery, will be released Friday from a Las Vegas facility due to good behavior and work. Will the Manny Pacquiao fight finally get underway?
Wednesday, ABC News reported that the “Money Team” fighter is set to be a free man soon after what could have been a long road to prison.
Mayweather, who was serving a 90-day jail sentence in Clark County over misdemeanor battery charges, will be free at the end of the week.
Floyd’s release, according to Las Vegas police Officer Jose Hernandez, is due to the boxer putting in work during his sentence. He also did not pose problems with staff.
After pleading guilty, the flamboyant boxer reported to jail on June 1 to begin his three-month-long sentence. Only days after beginning his sentence, he requested a transfer to house-arrest, citing that he was not eating well and losing muscle tone. However, a judge denied his request and he soldiered through.
While Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is being released from jail early, he has a lot to be thankful for. Had he not taken the plea-agreement, he could have served up to 34 years in prison on felony charges. In this way, a fight with Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao could still take place.
