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 don't know why everyone i*****ing on Lil' Kim i'm sure she is supporting Floyd the friend, not the abuser. Doesn't anyone else have friends that do a lot of bull**** but you still support them cause they've been your friends thru black and white?

You know you're a piece of trash when Ray J. and Lil' Kim show up to your court appearance. You are the company you keep. You do not hit a woman. I can't stand Kim Kardashian, but what Ray J. did to her was low and he is vile. He's pretty much the s*** of the earth and so it Mayweather.

I am a MAYWEATHER fan, and let's make it clear, I don't condone a man putting their hands on a woman, or a woman putting their hands on a man, it goes both ways, and the only people that really know what happened is them. This happens so often in the world everyday, and the only reason this is such a big issue is because he is famous, and filthy rich. Same thing happened to Chris Brown, but nobody really knows the truth, or the cir***stances besides them. Tabloids have a job and when things like this happen, it just makes it a whole lot easier for them to report it, whether it's true or not!! #I'm just saying!!!!!!!
