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.

That's What He Gets For Always Being So FLASHY & Money Hungry. Ain't No "Money Mayweather" Now Is It? Plaxico Did His Time, Lil Wayne Did His Time, Hell Even Martha Stewart Did Her Time And None Of Them Complained. So Why Should He Get Special Treatment? I Hope The Judge Throws In Another 30 Days For Being A Cry Baby About It. MAN UP GAYWEATHER!!

Oh BLAH BLAH BLAH.... Don't let him out. Maybe he just might learn a lesson. He is there for a reason. Tell him to go cry on Dr. Murray's shoulder

Floyd, Floyd, Floyd, you poor, stupid manchild. Your poor decisions are killing your boxing career, not jail. This is all you, baby. Clench those cheeks in the shower and don't drop the soap!

He wasn't too concerned about his baby mama's physique when he was beating on her

Now I'm just gonna roll out here on a limb and maybe suggest that in the future...YOU NOT BEAT UP YOUR BABY MAMA YOU TOOL. Boo freakin' hoo. "Oh, I can't work out", "Poor me, I can't eat 3000 calories a day". Know what Floyd, 100% of people polled by me suggest you punch your own face for awhile and perhaps knock some sense into it.

Suck it up, tough guy.

Didn't your mama ever teach you never strike a woman?

If he gets released, the judge should make it a stipulation that he has to fight Pacman!

OH. WELL.

Maybe next time don't beat up the mother of your children in front of aforementioned children.

NO ONE should get special treatment for their punishment after breaking the law.

Cry me a freaking river. He's lucky he only got 3 months, that's a light sentence. More than that his baby mama is lucky she's still alive!!! What a POS

Being in jail is a negative cir***stance... who woulda thunk. Wonder if he's weeping in his cell as we speak, poor baby.

So that is the excuse you are going with for when you finally get up the nerve to fight someone that can beat you, like Pacquiao?
