The undefeated welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. is sentenced to a 90-day imprisonment.
Mayweather will go behind bars at the Clark County Detention in Las Vegas. It stems from the domestic violence suit filed against him by his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, the mother of his three children.
Manny Pacquiao extends his prayer for his co-boxer. He will pray for Floyd and his family.
Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa ordered Mayweather to report to jail on Jan. 6 following his guilty plea on one account of ‘battery-domestic violence’ and no contest to ‘two accounts of harassment.’
He was ordered to attend a year-long domestic violence counseling program, pay a fine of $ 2,500 and render 100 hours of community service.
Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is going to meet with Pacquiao host in January to discuss the possible super-fight with Mayweather in June.
Arum refused to comment on how the sentence on Mayweather may affect on what is expected to be the biggest fight in boxing history.
Arum chose June as the fight date in order to give Mayweather some time to train.
Meanwhile, Pacquiao recently confirmed that there are ongoing negotiations with Mayweather’s team, it can only be resumed soon as Mayweather completed his sentence.
Analyst Kevin Iole thinks that being in jail could dull Mayweather’s ring skills, especially since he’s already aging.
