Floyd Mayweather Jr. Misses Rival's Controversial Fight
Floyd Mayweather Jr. Misses Manny's Controversial Fight
Floyd Mayweather Jr. was not able to see the controversy-laden pay-per-view fight between his middle weights rival Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley on Saturday the 9th, as he is currently serving out a three month sentence for domestic violence.
Into his second week in Clark County jail, Las Vegas, Mayweather is being held solo in a small jail cell and has no access to television, internet or phone. A Las Vegas police officer said he has been getting a lot of mail since his inmate number and address had been made public by someone via Twitter. However, some mail has been confiscated after being screened. As is common among well known inmates, Floyd Mayweather jr. is being kept separate from the others, including having private outdoor time, to avoid confrontations arising from someone wanting to make a name for himself.
Mayweather pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery as part of a plea deal to avoid up to 34 years in prison. The charge stemmed from an attack on the mother of his three children in September 2010. He was allowed to remain free long enough to earn a guranteed $32 million for a fight against Miguel Cotto on May 5th.
That's a whole lot of money he received. Now the question remaining is will Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao step foot into the ring to fight one another? It seems that this is probably not going to happen anytime soon, especially since a rematch is likely on the cards for Manny and Bradley. However, what may happen is Mayweather may end up fighting Bradley in the future, if Bradley is able to "defeat" Manny once again.
