Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Jail is KILLING

My Boxing Career

0601_floyd_mayweather_mugFloyd Mayweather, Jr. says he's begun to shrivel up into a puny regular person during his first 12 days in the big house ... and he's worried he won't be able to bounce back in time to save his boxing career.

Mayweather made the statements in new legal papers ... in which he begs the judge to release him from the Clark County Detention Center in Nevada and let him serve the remaining time in his 3-month sentence on house arrest.  FYI -- Floyd is currently locked up for beating his baby mama in front of their kids last year.

In the docs, Mayweather says he spends 23 hours-per-day locked in isolation for his own safety. But he claims the imprisonment is taking a "cruel and inhuman" toll on his rippling physique because he can't train at a world class level while serving his time.

Mayweather claims his doctor is concerned about his "dehydrated appearance, his lack of muscle tone and his dry mucus membranes."

Floyd says his doctor also "expressed deep concern for [Floyd's] health and explained that any lengthy period of time with an inappropriate diet, coupled with lack of regular exercise, will most likely lead to irreversible damage to Mr. Mayweather's physique."

Floyd's doctor also told the court he's concerned about Floyd's diet ... because he used to eat 3,000 to 4,000 calories per day ... and now, the doc believes FM is eating less than 800.

In the papers, 35-year-old Floyd estimates he only has 2 years of boxing left in his career ... so every day counts.

A hearing will be held on Floyd's request on Thursday.

Ha ha. Break the law, do the time.

If it was me... I'd never have gotten the princess prison treatment like this Idiot.

Letting him out early even on house arrest would be saying, it's ok to beat a woman.

BOO HOO! He deserves every second of his jail time! If he chooses to refuse food or water and then complains about the accommodations or treatment he is getting, then it's his own fault, and it really should mess up his career, just like every other criminal who's career is ruined because of their lack of caring in he first place. It's not as though he is locked up in jail for no reason. And if this "ruins" his so called "Boxing Career" then maybe he should have thought about that before he chose to beat on his defenseless wife in front of his own children...

Damn! I was reading the articleand I was thinking why is when most of the time when the person is black or etc, it's mostly called " baby mamma" but most of the time when they are "white" you guys say mother of his child ! Im just saying. These are your words. Oh yeah bye the way I was a communications major at a a well known university so I already know the answer!!!!!!!
