I agree, I just wanna see the fight already too. I've been debating this fight along with everybody else for over 5 years, A lot has happened in the last 5 years. Just think about how much the landscape has changed in MMA in the last 5 years, but us boxing fans are still talking about the same two fighters. There is good things about that and bad things as well.

I am over the back and forth of who is at fault for the fight not happening yet, because they are both to blame for a lot of things. Pacquiao has been Arum's puppet and Floyd could have made this fight happen more than once. This has never been about weight classes, blood tests, or building some ridiculous outdoor venue in Vegas. It's about money. As a general fight fan I could care less who gets the lion's share as long as the guys fight, but we both know it's not that simple.

That being said, I still don't see Manny beating Floyd but, first things first, lets see how Manny looks against Bradley this Saturday.

Why would I make fun of Josie for getting beaten up? As for the other guys, yeah, it's pathetic, just like paparazzi, but they pretty much already make fun of themselves.

I'll make fun of Mayweather for going to jail for beating up his ex especially when the best part of it is his hypocrisy. In 2001, when he fought Diego Corrales, he dedicated the fight to all battered women in America as Corrales was facing charges of physically abusing his pregnant wife. Subsequently, Corrales served prison time for the abuse.
I laugh at the Floyd jokes too. I am a fan of his, but if something is funny I still laugh. If I think something is lame, then I say it's lame.

In regards to Floyd's charges...I'm not defending his actions, but it's probably safe to say there is a lot that we don't know about what happened that night. It's also not uncommon for people to plead out and take a small sentence rather than go through a lengthy and costly trial. Whatever the case, he is doing his time and it is what it is. It's not like he's Edwin Valero...

He's only 12 days into his sentence and although he's tough enough to beat up his ex, he isn't tough enough to sit in his cell for 23 hours a day for a measly 78 days.

Tired of celebrities thinking they deserve special treatment.

Mayweather seeks to serve jail sentence under house arrest

By Francis McCabe
2012 LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Posted: Jun. 11, 2012 | 8:44 p.m.

Updated: Jun. 11, 2012 | 9:04 p.m.

Twelve days into his three-month jail sentence on a domestic battery count, undefeated champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is asking to go home.

Or he contends he may never fight again.

An emergency motion obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal shows Mayweather's lawyers will ask Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa as early as Tuesday that the former Olympian bronze medal winner be allowed to serve the remainder of his sentence on house arrest.

The 35-year-old's physical conditioning is deteriorating under the stress of being jailed at the Clark County Detention Center and he's being held in "inhumane conditions," lawyer Richard Wright said in the motion filed Monday.

The boxer is being segregated from the general population and confined to his cell 23 hours a day in a locked-down section populated by felony defendants, Wright said. And in the hour each day Mayweather is allowed in a recreation area, he is alone and unable to use training facilities.

Wright stated that others who have committed similar misdemeanor offenses are treated differently and Mayweather's celebrity status "cannot be accommodated at the CCDC."

Prosecutors are expected to oppose the motion. Jail officials were not available for comment late Monday.

Mayweather was sentenced to the 90-day jail stint after pleading guilty for beating his ex-girlfriend in front of their children in September 2010. He began serving his sentence June 1. Las Vegas police have maintained that Mayweather would be held in isolation to protect him from other prisoners.

The 35-page motion, which included affidavits from Mayweather's trainer Leonard Ellerbe and personal physician Dr. Robert Voy, stated that if Mayweather remained in jail it would threaten his career. He had planned on fighting for at least two more years, according to the motion.

Voy, through a court order, examined the boxer for 90 minutes on Friday, while jail medical staff observed.

"Medical opinion shows that CCDC administrative segregation threatens to end or shorten Mr. Mayweather's boxing career," the motion stated.

Voy determined Mayweather is consuming less than 800 calories a day. He's eating fruit, bread and energy bars bought at the commissary. Under his normal daily training routine the boxer consumes between 3,000 and 4,000 calories.

Voy also investigated Mayweather's ability to exercise. He found Mayweather has no room to exercise in jail and he is not allowed to use the training areas because he's in isolation.

"After examining Mr. Mayweather, Dr. Voy was concerned with Mr. Mayweather's dehydrated appearance, his lack of muscle tone and his dry mucus membranes," the motion stated.

Dr. Voy also "expressed deep concern for Mr. Mayweather's health and explained that any lengthy period of time with an inappropriate diet, coupled with lack of regular exercise, will most likely lead to irreversible damage to Mr. Mayweather's physique," the motion stated.

"Such damage could and, most likely, would lead to Mr. Mayweather being unable to continue his boxing career," the motion stated.

Dr. Voy was also concerned that Mayweather was withdrawing into depression and developing anger issues that he normally can "dissipate" through his exercise routine.

Wright identified several differences between the way Mayweather is treated versus those in general population. Mayweather is only allowed access to shower, watch TV, use hot water to prepare food, use phones and exercise for an hour a day. Other inmates have access to phones, TV, and can play games with other inmates and are out of their cells "for most of the day."

Inside his cell, Mayweather doesn't have access to hot water to prepare food for himself or clean himself and he was recently told he cannot receive bottled water because he's in isolation.

According to the motion, Mayweather has not been a problem inmate and has treated jail staff with respect. Still, "He (Mayweather) believes he is treated in a very unfair and inhumane way," Voy stated in the motion.

In Ellerbe's affidavit, the trainer attested to Mayweather's vigorous training regimen. Ellerbe stated he has to "force him to leave the gym each day." And it is this dedication to training that has allowed Mayweather to remain undefeated, Ellerbe said.

"Whether Mr. Mayweather will be able to box again is dependent on his continued conditioning," the motion stated.

Wright added in the motion, "To lose his physique and ability to box because of being placed in administrative segregation is a blow he should not have to take."

That Mayweather is being held in isolation and not able to maintain his training regime "may cause, not just huge financial harm to Mayweather, but also huge emotional harm if he is no longer able to pursue his boxing career because of the de-conditioning he has suffered with CCDC."

Wright said that Mayweather believed he was only going to be in isolation for a week before being moved to another area of the downtown jail. Wright said jail officials have indicated he will remain in isolation. His scheduled release date is August 3, according to jail records.

Wright said in the motion that Mayweather would be willing to work with jail officials to find "an appropriate location" to serve house arrest if the judge agreed. It's unclear if the appropriate location would be Mayweather's 12,000-square-foot mansion in the ritzy Southern Highlands development that sports a walk-in closet bigger than his jail cell.
Mayweather has asked to be put in the general population, according to the motion, however, jailers have declined to do so because of his celebrity status.

An emergency hearing on the motion was set for Tuesday, but was not on the court calendar late Monday. A scheduling problem may cause the hearing to be pushed to Thursday.

On June 1, Saragosa commended the boxer for his progress toward completing his court-ordered counseling and community service.

Mayweather was on the way to completing other portions of his probation when he began serving the jail sentence.

He finished 21 of the 54 counseling sessions, including one on May 5, the day of Mayweather's last fight, a victory over Miguel Cotto.

Mayweather also completed 45 hours of community service with three local charities: Habitat for Humanity, Three Square food bank and the Las Vegas Rescue Mission.

In recent months, Mayweather has embarked on a goodwill campaign.
In addition to his required community service, Mayweather has donated more than $100,000 to charities, including the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation and Habitat for Humanity.

The boxer pleaded guilty in December to domestic battery and no contest to two counts of harassment, all misdemeanors, for assaulting the mother of three of his children and threatening his two sons.

He was scheduled to start serving his jail term in January, but Saragosa delayed his surrender so Mayweather could keep his scheduled bout with Cotto.

Mayweather won a unanimous decision, taking the WBA super welterweight title and running his record to 43-0. He was guaranteed $32 million for the fight.

Mayweather's cell includes a bed, stainless steel toilet, sink and small desk, with a window with direct sunlight and fluorescent lighting.

According to state law, Mayweather could be a free man in as little as two months with good behavior.

BREAKING: Judge Denies Mayweather's House Arrest Appeal

Posted: Jun 13, 2012 7:17 PM CDT
Updated: Jun 13, 2012 7:24 PM CDT
By Stephen Jackson, Online News Editor - email


LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas judge has denied a request from boxer Floyd Mayweather to serve the remainder of his jail sentence from home.

Judge Melissa Saragosa denied Mayweather's request late Wednesday.

Mayweather claimed he was underfed and also unable to train. The judge denied his request, saying chose not to eat the food available and that he could train in his cell.

Mayweather was sent to jail for 90 days starting on June 1 after being arrested for domestic violence.

He was accused of hitting and threatening his ex-girlfriend, stealing her cell phone and threatening two of their children at her home in September 2010. He could have faced 34 years in prison.
