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 am amazed how Gayweather can fight a woman but wont fight Manny??!! I am still trying to figure this one out. Gayweather you are an ugly pathetic punk! Take advantage of your looks now cause in a few years you are gonna be ugly as hell like your dad. Money cant buy manhood either~

That's weird, they said 10:45, and I am not seeing a thing. 90 days for pounding on a woman? Needs more time than that. Could also use some psych care. I would be saying the same thing if it was a woman up for beating on a man. Why can't people just keep their hands to themselves for God's sake, is it THAT hard?

It is truly a disgusting day in society when "friends" show up to support a wife beater. What little progress women have made in this society has just been s*it on by two complete losers. I wish all these people would just crawl into a hole.

B.S. IF IT WERE ANY NON CELEBRITY WE WOULD BE IN JAIL RIGHT NOW. I CANT STAND THE SPECIAL TREATMENT OF ANY CELEBRITY, ITS JUST IN OUR FACES SO BAD, THIS IS C**P. THERE IS NO JUSTICE IN THIS COUNTRY. NOW MY ONLY HOPE IS THAT MANNY BEATS THE HELL OUT OF HIM AND THEN HE GETS TO GO TO JAIL AND BE SOMEONES GIRLFRIEND!!
