Mayweather gets 3 months jail from January 6th onwards


By @livefight

Floyd Mayweather Jr. pleaded guilty to a charge of battery and two counts of harassment and was jailed for three months and fined $2,500 today in connection with a domestic violence incident according to court officials.

He is lucky not to be spending Xmas behind bars after it was decided he would enter custody on January 6th 2012.

He was arrested in September 2010 after he punched the mother of his children at his home. According to an arrest report, Mayweather threatened Josie Harris, saying, "I'm going to kill you and the man you are messing around with".

Mayweather was sentenced to six months in jail on the misdemeanor charges, but 90 days will be suspended if he serves 90 days. He also must perform 100 hours of community service and attend domestic violence counselling.

Mayweather's publicity team have been deathly silent. The woman-beater finds himself in an ironic position after he lambasted the late Diego Corrales for a domestic assault situation prior to fighting him. Offering for his beaten partner to sit at ringside free of charge and watch him beat-up Corrales for his actions.
