Floyd Mayweather Junior To Be Jailed For Three Months, Will Begin Sentence On Jan. 6th 2012
By James Slater: Moments ago, in Clark County, boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Junior was sentenced to six months in prison by judge Melissa Saragosa. The prison term, in addition to a 12-month domestic violence program and a $2,500 fine, is for the domestic violence Mayweather has been found guilty of committing on ex-girlfriend Josie Harris and for also threatening two of his children.

Sitting quietly in court today, Mayweather was informed that he must turn himself in at 10:45 on the morning of Jan. 6th next year. The 34-year-old was sentenced to six months but the final 90 days of the sentence were suspended.
This news of course puts “Money’s” immediate fighting future in serious doubt. Fans can certainly forget all about the planned, pencilled-in May 5th date at The MGM Grand that Mayweather was looking at. Today’s development also puts any chance of a Mayweather Vs. Manny Pacquiao fight - at least in the first half of 2012 - in serious doubt.
Mayweather WILL do time, and he will not be released until April of next year. Boxing is probably the last thing on the superstar’s mind right now anyway, but in coming out of jail in April, the controversy-plagued Pound-for-Pounder would need at least two months to get himself into peak fighting shape. Considering how he will turn 35 next February, we must ask ourselves if we have actually seen Mayweather Junior’s last fight.
Mayweather has three days jail time credited to him already, therefore he will serve 87 days beginning Jan. 6th.
