Floyd Mayweather Jr. has turned himself in to a jail at around 2 pm ET in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday (June 1). The boxer officially started his 90-day sentence for domestic violence after he beat up his ex-girlfriend Josie Harries in front of their kids back in September of 2010.
The judge was impressed since Floyd has already completed 45 hours (out of 100) of community service (20 hours at Habitat for Humanity, 10 hours at a Nevada food bank called Three Square, and 15 hours at Las Vegas Rescue Mission), and 21 hours (out of 54) of domestic violence classes.
The boxing champion was expected to surrender back in January, but the judge postponed the date to allow him to fight against Miguel Cotto on May 5th. A fight he won, making more than $32 million.
While he serves the remaining 87 days of his sentence, Floyd will be kept in protective custody and away from the general inmate population. The boxer also gets a small private cell with a bed, toilet, sink, small desk and a window. Oh, life is good for the rich and famous… even in jail!
