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.

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.

Imagine a car salesman saying; "Your Honor, the spring is my best time for selling Cadilacs, can I start my sentence in June?

Figures two named idiots and I'm sure other***** the courthouse to support a spousal abuser. Chicken**** can hit a woman but can't take on the best fighter in the world - Pacman. Didn't he sucker punch someone recently to win. albeit the opponent should have been "protecting himself at all times" instead of looking at ref.. NO CLASS. go to jail and put a target on his A-hole. Keep the bastard off HBO as well, re: Larry Merchant.

It seems that the judge was pressured and possibly threatened by the dark forces that run Las Vegas, California and big money of boxing. She seemed a little shaken and nervous. I bet you there was more going on behind the scenes than we will ever know. I also bet you that when he goes to jail-if he ever does- he will be well taken care of behind bars. Money rules our courts and government.

Not only does Floyed have a lot of money, but he has temporary power, because he is making big money for the people who pull the strings. But, he needs to wake up and realize that he is not as powerful or liked as he thinks. He is just a tool that is being used and once he stops winning and is of no more use, he will unfortunately be another statistic of great black athletes who were thought they ruled the world and had it all and end up broke.

The judge was the first to punk out. She should have said, "NO! This woman beater is going to do his time.I don't care WHAT has been scheduled." Floyd is still a no class jerk and a coward (because he hits women AND he won't fight Manny). If he fights anyone but Manny after being given this repreive then he is an even BIGGER coward. Floyd, either step up or step down.

don`t know why so much bull. the should leave Mayweather alone and stop the bull about his family business. wont be the first or the last to have these type of problems. they make it such of a big deal just because he is Mayweather.

let me see if i understand this...he isn't going to jail for hitting a woman so he can hit some other guy in May? That's like not sending me to jail on drug charges so I can do more drugs in the spring...

So he's given 90 days in jail, but postponed to let him fight to make money??... seems a harsher and more real world sentence would be to jail him, and make him miss his fight and the money that came with it... that would make an impression that none of this will.
