Floyd Mayweather Prosecutor Responds: It’s Jail, Where Did He Think He Was Going, The Four Seasons?

| June 14, 2012 | 0 Comments

Floyd Mayweather’s request to be released early on home confinement went on death ears with a Nevada judge as she rationalized that he is bringing his health issues on himself and that he should eat and drink what is being given to him.

Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa wrote in her late Wednesday decision that water has been made available to Mayweather around the clock and the only reason he isn’t eating properly is because he refuses to eat the provided meals. Saragosa said Mayweather’s complaints that he is unable to exercise in jail are also unfounded.

“While the physical training areas and times provided to (Mayweather) may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses,” Saragosa wrote.

A mere 10 days after Mayweather turned himself in to begin his three-month sentence, his legal team filed an emergency motion Monday asking the court to put him under house arrest or move him into the general jail population — something that jail officials had avoided to protect the celebrity fighter. The motion claimed the undefeated champion might never fight again because he was getting out of shape in solitary confinement.

Let’s just hope that if he is placed in general population, he doesn’t encounter anyone like the wrestler in the above video

Mayweather lawyer Richard Wright didn’t immediately return a phone message late Wednesday. Wright said earlier this week that he was not seeking special treatment for the 35-year-old fighter. So Mayweather will have to tough it out just like the rest of the inmates in the jail.

Why did Mayweather think he would get special treatment anyways?
