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.

Wow! Who knew that prison officials didn't offer a boxing training camp and an expensive high protein diet for wifebeaters?

Cruel and unusual punishment.

He must have beat his wife pretty bad in front of his daughter to get 3 months. If it was one of us average "Joes" we would probably get a few years in the slammer. You already got off the hook doing 3 months. As many people stated already if you can't do the time don't do the crime!

Next time don't beat up on a woman you stupid son of a crock sucking whore.

Secondly - if the Dr. opines this about this idiot, can you imagine what his opinion would be for those inmates that have been in solitary confinement for over a year?

Get the fruck out of here with your jargon. You beat on the woman now do the time you disgusting animal.

If you don't want to be in jail - DON'T BEAT ON WOMEN you stupid son of a bitch.

What a silly douchebag. Guess what Floyd, don't be a racist, woman beater, and threaten your own children for trying to protect their mother and maybe you won't go to jail. This guy has all the talent and money in the world but not a shred of human decency.

Don't have baby momma's and you wouldn't be there. You've been hit in the head tooooo many times to properly formulate the required amount of brain cells needed to understand this concept. Plus, stop thinking with your penis.

Well your little short ass should have thought about that before you put your hands on the mother of your children. Do you really expect anyone to have sympathy for you? Really!? Do your time little one!!
