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.

Floyd Mayweather is a piece of **** woman beater. But since he is worried about his career and not the fact that he beats women then how about this compromise. Let him out now so he can train and continue to duck pacquia under the agreement that in two years exactly he comes back to jail. Now here is the rub. He must serve 4 days for each one he was let out early so in two years he must come back and serve 1 full year which is at least what he deserved for beating a woman in front of kids. But who are we kidding, he is a ***** and just cant do the time, and chances are his kids will follow his lead and be rich spoiled *******s themselves. **** floyd mayweather.

awww...poor mistreated BABY! Guess he should've thought about that before he beat up his baby mama in front of his kids. But I guess he wouldn't think about how his actions have affected anyone but him. No special treatment. Let him stay, and if he never fights again, then...oh, dang. Sucks to be him....

Can someone please take this boy's man card away? His swollen vag is amazing. The Teen Mom who asked to go to jail(even though she is an idiot) has bigger stones than Mayweather. LOL. He can hang around 50 cent and act like a balling, gangster. He might have skills in the ring, but out he is another spoiled punk. They should put him in general population. LOL. Then he would be on his knees getting a high protein diet from the fellas in the yard. LOL

This story is almost comical. Let him out, because his Dr. is worried about his physique? Has the Dr. and this guy concerned themselves at all with how beating a woman in front of their children affected the children? Isn't that the real story here?

Visit the commissary, Floyd. Do calisthenics in your cell. Use weights during recreation. Think about what you did and repent.

the stupid ****er shouldn't be beating up his baby mama.... I hope he get's no special treatment... I don't want to see him under house arrest, because that's what he wants... He needs to sit his ass in jail and think about why he is there and if he never fight again will boo ****in who
