Boxing Champ Floyd Mayweather Reports to Jail

World champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. reported to the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas Friday to begin his sentence for pleading guilty to a reduced domestic battery charge last December, reports USA Today.

Mayweather’s sentence is for 87 days, but he could serve less with good behavior. For at least the first week, he will be in isolation. Mayweather will remain in his cell for about 23 hours a day, according to SI.com.

The domestic battery charges came as a result of an incident in September 2010 with Josie Harris, the mother of three of his children.

Mayweather was initially scheduled to start his sentence in January, but his lawyers sought to push the sentence back until June 1 to allow Mayweather time to get in another fight.

On May 5, Mayweather defeated Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas. Although the fight was tightly contested, Mayweather won by unanimous decision.
