Boxing champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather has been sentenced to six months in jail by a Las Vegas judge for his involvement in a September 2010 domestic abuse incident.
Half of that sentence has been suspended, so Mayweather will report for jail on January 6 to serve what remains of his ninety-day jail sentence (87 days) in the Clark County Detention Center.
Upon his release, Mayweather has been order to pay a $2,500 fine, attend one year of domestic violence abuse counseling, as well as perform one hundred hours of community service.
The undefeated pugilist entered a guilty plea today in a Las Vegas court to reduced domestic battery and harassment, reducing his charges from felony counts which came about as a result of a September 2010 incident in which he allegedly battered his ex-girlfriend and threatened their two kids.
Mayweather has also agreed to enter a plea of no contest and pay a $1,000 fine sometime next week for a misdemeanor battery charge relating from a November 2010 incident in which he abused a security guard.
No word yet on exactly how this will affect the boxer’s announced plans to fight in May, or a potential superfight with Manny Pacquiao.
