The pound for pound best fighter in the world is not cut out for time behind bars. He is often associated with gangsta rappers and being thuggish in nature, but this is all part of an image that was recently shattered when he begged to get out of jail and go back to his mansion.
Recently, the lawyer for Floyd Mayweather, JR., filed a motion to have his client released because he couldn’t get bottled water and food that he liked. There were mentions that his health was deteriorating in the joint, but the judge laughed him out of the courtroom. He did the crime and will have to do the time.
Floyd was able to use his celebrity status to postpone his sentence so he could have his fight with Miguel Cotto, but that was as far as they were going to bend and rightfully so. Had Mayweather, JR., been released, it would have sent a terrible message. There realistically would be no punishment. He would sit in his mansion, comfortably, and wait for the days to pass by before he could leave. In jail, he is told what to do, when to eat and that is something that he is not accustomed to and hates.
The champion boxer will be out within 3 months and will then continue his boxing career. For now, he sits in a cell, counting the minutes.
