Floyd Mayweather Jr.

No Jail 'til June ...

So He Can Fight in Vegas

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

010612_mayweather_getty_BN
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.

WHAT A JUSTICE SYSTEM WE HAVE, AN APPOINTED JUDGE IS DEFERRING SOMEONES JAIL TIME NOT BECAUSE (1) his child is in E.R (2) Jesus is coming BUT BECAUSE HE HAS TO WORK.
I WONDER IF I BEAT A WOMAN AND TELL THE JUDGE TO "CHILL" FOR ME BECAUSE I HAVE TO GO TO MY SALES JOB HE WOULD BE "COOL" WITH ME.
WHERE ARE THE BATTERED WOMEN ASSOCIATION!!!!!! MAKES ME SICK!!

This is the problem with the African American community. They refuse to label domestic abuse as a crime. They blame the victim and support the abuser. Happens all the time.

Looser trash usually finds looser trash to support. Nobody knows RayJ or fat old Kim.....15 minutes were up long ago.

Makes sense that Lil Kim and Ray J would be there...How about some friends that haven't been to jail themselves.

1st, he's an amazing (and smart) boxer but i'm a floyd hater.
2nd, floyd knows he's above the law and he demonstrates it everytime he parks in the handicapped spot in front of BofA.

with that being said, i'm sure he learned his lesson and he'll resist the temptation of smacking another chick... and he will do his time in jail. the deterrent worked. i've heard judges in court and they move dates all the time. who hasn't gone to court and talked to the judge about their options instead of paying a ticket? u can do community service, traffic school, postpone it... this is how the game is played.

i hope he fights victor ortiz after he loses to pacman :D
mayweather record: 42-2

Gee what a surprise that Kim Kardashian would support a racist, woman beater, and a man who threatens his own children. At least Floyd is a great boxer but a even greater excuse for a sorry human being. Kim Kardashian has no talent and is a stupid skank.

That judge should be ashamed of himself or herself. To allow someone to essentially choose their jail time so it fits better in their life is ridiculous. Talk about celebrity justice. What a disgrace.

Didn't realize Lil Kim still had a career. And what's wrong with that pic of Ray J-looks like his head is on backwards...like the exorcist.
