Yahoo!Sports has obtained a photo of what the jail cell of Floyd Mayweather Jr. could look like.
Mayweather, who turns 35 in February, was sentenced to 90 days in jail starting on January 6 as a result of Wednesday’s guilty plea to a charge of misdemeanor battery domestic violence and no contest on two counts of harassment.
The Las Vegas Police Department released a photo of a room that may resemble that which Mayweather will be housed in once he reports to the Clark County Detention Center.
After scoring the fourth-round knockout of Victor Ortiz in September that earned him the WBC’s welterweight title belt, Mayweather (42-0, 26 knockouts), the RING No. 2-ranked pound-for-pound fighter, had targeted a May 5 return to the ring at the MGM Grand against an opponent to be determined, potentially RING No. 1-rated pound-for-pound WBO welterweight beltholder Manny Pacquiao.
But given the extent of Mayweather’s sentence, there is a significant question as to whether or not Maywhether will even be licensed by the Nevada State Athletic Commision’s five-member committee, let alone, if he will even have time enough to begin training for a fight on that date.
Mayweather was also ordered by Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa to pay a $2,500 fine, complete 100 hours of community service and to undergo 12 months of treatment in a domestic violence program.
Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs) is coming off November’s controversial majority decision over Juan Manuel Marquez, against whom Pacquiao had battled through a draw and a split-decision victory previously.
In the meantime, Top Rank Inc. CEO Bob Arum has said that he might offer up a fourth bout with Marquez, or else, WBO junior welterweight beltholder Tim Bradley or WBA junior middleweight titleholder Miguel Cotto to Pacquiao during a January meeting.
