Floyd Mayweather Jr. Sentenced to 90 Days in Jail
Christmas came a little early for boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. -- but this isn't the kind of gift he was expecting. After entering a guilty plea for a 2010 domestic violence charge, Mayweather Jr. was sentenced to 90 days in jail on Wednesday. He’ll report to jail on January 6 and exit in April. In September 2010, a heated argument with his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, turned physical. Hair-pulling, punching and arm-twisting ensured as the argument escalated with Harris while two of their children watched. Mayweather threatened to kill or make Harris "disappear," and their 10-year-old son ran from the house and jumped a back gate to fetch security. Mayweather was given jail time in lue of his previous domestic abuse charges in Nevada and Michigan. His nickname, "Money", was also to blame as the judge stated that simply fining Mayweather would have no effect on him since his recent earnings exceeded $21 million dollars from his last bout. The big question is will Mayweather's government sponsored vacation effect his career and possibile showdown with Manny Pacquiao in 2012.
