Floyd Mayweather Jr.

No Jail 'til June ...

So He Can Fight in Vegas

1/6/2012 11:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather Jr. won't have to turn himself in to a Las Vegas jail until June 1, 2012 ... so he can fight in Las Vegas on May 5th ... the judge just ruled.

Floyd was supposed to turn himself in today to begin his 90-day sentence for beating up his baby mama -- but his attorney had asked the judge to postpone the boxer's turn-in date to June 1 ... to give Floyd time to train for a massive fight on May 5th against an undetermined opponent at the MGM Grand.

His attorney's justification ... Floyd's a pro who brings in hundreds of millions in profits for the city of Las Vegas -- and hey, thing's get rescheduled all the time ... no bigs.

Several of Floyd's famous friends came to court to support the boxer -- including Ray J and Lil Kim.

update_bar
12:13 PM PT: Ray J and Lil Kim are real pals -- telling TMZ on their way out of court, they showed up for Floyd as an act of solidarity.



Sources close to Kim tell us, Kim and Floyd have become really close friends ... in fact, she's put her career on hold for the boxer while he awaits his sentence, canceling New Year's Eve appearances and pushing back her holiday album ... just to be there for him.

I didnt see no video, no audio, no pics. In this technology age, if it was so bad. Plus Floyd still gets to see his kids. Their mom let them go with him. No restraining order or nothing. So if anybody actually lives in the real world you can tell it was just an altercation tween man and woman blown outta proportion
