Jail affecting Mayweather's health? Share This Story

Updated Jun 12, 2012 5:55 PM ET
LAS VEGAS (AP)
Lawyers for Floyd Mayweather Jr. say the undefeated champion is getting out of shape in solitary confinement and may never fight again if he's not released from the cramped Las Vegas jail cell where he began serving a three-month sentence earlier this month.



FALLS FROM GRACE
Plenty of athletes have committed epic career blunders. Check out the top sports star screwups.
In an emergency motion filed Monday, lawyers asked the court to move him into the general jail population something that jail officials had avoided out of fear for the celebrity's safety or put him in house arrest for the rest of his sentence.

The jail's ''conduct may cause, not just huge financial harm to Mr. Mayweather, but also huge emotional harm if he is no longer able to pursue his boxing career because of the deconditioning he has suffered,'' lawyers wrote.

Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa said she'll decide later this week whether to ease jail conditions for Mayweather.

Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassell declined to comment on the specific claims in the motion, but said jail administrators were keeping Mayweather in isolation to prevent fights.

Mayweather lawyer Richard Wright said he'd be willing to have the boxer serve the sentence in an apartment or somewhere less luxurious than Mayweather's posh Las Vegas-area home.

''I'm not looking for special treatment for Floyd Mayweather,'' Wright said. ''I'm looking for fair treatment.''

But prosecutor Lisa Luzaich said softening the sentence would be just another accommodation, similar to when Mayweather's jail surrender date was postponed for months after sentencing so he could fight Miguel Cotto in May.

''They keep chipping away, chipping away, chipping away,'' Luzaich said.

Mayweather pleaded guilty in December to misdemeanor domestic battery and no contest to two harassment charges that stemmed from an attack on his ex-girlfriend while two of their children watched. He was sentenced to three months and entered the jail June 1.

Mayweather's jail stay will be capped at 87 days because the judge gave him credit for three days previously served. It could be reduced by several weeks for good behavior.

In the motion, which was first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, lawyers say Mayweather's personal physician, Dr. Robert Voy, visited the jail Friday and was concerned the 35-year-old fighter appeared to have lost muscle tone.

Voy estimated the boxer was consuming fewer than 800 calories a day a drop from his usual 3,000 or 4,000 calories and wasn't drinking enough because he isn't allowed bottled water and doesn't usually drink tap water.

Mayweather has been getting a little more than 30 minutes twice a day in a couple of barren recreation areas in the administrative segregation unit, Cassell said. His cell, no larger than 7-by-12 feet, has barely enough floor space for pushups and situps.

But prosecutors argued he's ''deconditioning'' by choice, and declining much of his food.

''He has the ability to exercise, he just chooses not to,'' Luzaich said. ''It's jail. Where did he think he was going? The Four Seasons?''

Voy and Wright also pointed to Mayweather's declining emotional state.

''I am concerned about Floyd withdrawing, developing anger he cannot dissipate through the usual means of dedicated exercise and training,'' Voy wrote in an affidavit. ''Boxing has been Mr. Mayweather's life since he was a young man and we need champions of this type to continue to their natural retirement and hopefully their contributions to society thereafter.''

He's probably right, but that's why it's jail. I would think there's some sort of camp prison somewhere that he can be sent to. They keep saying it's a jail, which usually means it's crummier.

They'll let him out though. He makes Nevada millions of dollars a year

No. He'll fight Pac when Pac is CLEARLY in decline, and Maywether is not, which has already begun.

Pac, because he has heart, would foolishly take the fight i'm sure.

you know when Tyson first became a professional, he would thank God for his talents after every match. he conducted himself with class and professionalism....with dignity. then Cus died and the decline began. fast forward several years and you've got a clown talking about wanting to stomp on reporters childrens testicles so that they can feel his pain.

I'll give him props for his athletic ability. it's simply undeniable. I just find him unlikeable....repulsive actually.
the ortiz sucker punch illustrates exactly the kind of man mayweather is.
some think it's a bad guy persona he has chosen to portray. I thought the same thing in the beginning....that it was fake. then I began to change my mind. the sucker punch sealed the deal for me. he truly IS a pompous, arrogant, mouthy, hateful ****ing ASSHOLE.

there IS one thing he and I do have in common.....we both agree that Larry Merchant should be fired (see end of video). mayweather doesn't like Merchant because they are both so much alike. pompous assholes.

Ortiz was purposefully headbutting him several times in that fight. I'm not saying the sucker punch was justified, but lets not pretend Ortiz was a complete victim there.

Yeah, that's the core of the issue. Any loss in conditioning is going to be very minor and due only to laziness. I've seen those "lockup" shows in the Discovery Channel or whatever, and it would appear that jail is one of the best places in the world to get into shape. Some of those guys are just scary after doing curls with water jugs eight hours a day.

There's no such thing as a sucker punch in a boxing ring (unless a fighter is down).

His best wins IMO, in no apparent order:
Diego Corrales
Jose Luis Castillo
Arturo Gatti
Ricky Hattan
Juan Manual Marquez (arguable at first, but after the fit he gave Pac after, I put it on the list)
Zab Judah
Oscar

The reason the fight didn't get made changes depending on who you talk to. You could say Pac wouldn't take the tests, Mayweather didn't want to deal with Arum, Pac is scared, Mayweather is scared, etc...

In my opinion it was probably a lot of ego and a lot of Arum. Pac has been fighting Top Rank stable fighters for the past few years and it makes more sense money wise for Arum to just pair him that way. Pac's Top Rank contract is up in in 2013, the only way I see the matchup happening is if he doesn't resign with Arum.

But even with the conditioning routines you are suggesting, he'd still have to eat all the food he is given instead of 800 calories worth and drink tap water. Sounds like hell to me.

What a bitch this guy is. Did he only drink bottled water when he was a young fighter trying to make it?

He is a punk through, and through.
He is an awesome fighter, but I don't think he's considered one of the best ever. Maybe he was, but the sport is so widely disregarded as a corrupted mess, and he acted like such a POS he'll be tossed in terms of greatness.

Floyd Mayweather to remain in jail

LAS VEGAS -- Floyd Mayweather's request that he be released from jail because the low-quality food and water have threatened his health was denied by a Las Vegas judge who says he should eat and drink what is being given to him behind bars.

Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa wrote in her late Wednesday decision that water has been made available to Mayweather around the clock and the only reason he isn't eating properly is because he refuses to eat the provided meals. Saragosa said Mayweather's complaints that he is unable to exercise in jail are also unfounded.

"While the physical training areas and times provided to (Mayweather) may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses," Saragosa wrote.

A mere 10 days after Mayweather turned himself in to begin his three-month sentence, his legal team filed an emergency motion Monday asking the court to put him under house arrest or move him into the general jail population -- something that jail officials had avoided to protect the celebrity fighter. The motion claimed the undefeated champion might never fight again because he was getting out of shape in solitary confinement.

Mayweather lawyer Richard Wright didn't immediately return a phone message late Wednesday. Wright said earlier this week that he was not seeking special treatment for the 35-year-old fighter.

Mayweather pleaded guilty last year to reduced domestic battery charges stemming from an attack on his former girlfriend while two of their children watched. The plea deal allowed him to avoid trial on felony charges that could have gotten Mayweather up to 34 years in prison if he was convicted. Mayweather was sentenced Dec. 22, but was allowed to remain free long enough to make a Cinco de Mayo weekend fight.

Mayweather's legal team told the court this week that his personal physician, Dr. Robert Voy, visited the jail Friday and determined the fighter had lost muscle tone. Voy estimated Mayweather was consuming fewer than 800 calories a day instead of his usual 3,000 or 4,000 calories. Mayweather also wasn't drinking enough because he wasn't allowed bottled water and doesn't enjoy tap water.

"I am concerned about Floyd withdrawing, developing anger he cannot dissipate through the usual means of dedicated exercise and training," Voy wrote in an affidavit. "Boxing has been Mr. Mayweather's life since he was a young man and we need champions of this type to continue to their natural retirement and hopefully their contributions to society thereafter."

Prosecutor Lisa Luzaich scoffed at the complaints during a court hearing Tuesday.

"It's jail," Luzaich told the court. "Where did he think he was going? The Four Seasons?"
