RELEASED from Jail

Floyd Mayweather Jr.
is officially a free man -- the boxing champ was all smiles when he was released early Friday morning from a Vegas jail, where he served roughly 2 months of his 3-month sentence for domestic violence.

Floyd was sentenced to jail in December over a 2010 incident, when he beat up his baby mama in front of their kids -- but the judge allowed Floyd to turn himself in on June 1st, so he could fight Miguel Cotto on May 5th (Floyd won).

A spokesperson for the LVPD said Mayweather was being released early for good behavior behind bars.

Floyd was originally sentenced to 6 months in jail after pleading guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence -- but 3 months of that sentence was suspended.

Floyd also pled no contest to 2 misdemeanor harassment charges -- after allegedly threatening to beat his kids too during the incident.

In addition to the jail time, Floyd was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service and a 12-month domestic violence program. So far, he's completed roughly half of both.

Floyd's boy 50 Cent was among the group of people who came to pick Floyd up from jail ... and can be seen riding shotgun when Floyd drives away (see video below).

Men that beat on women really make me furious. Then you have a guy who is worth millions and fights for a living beating on women? He needs his butt kicked in a dark alley by a group of men who honor women.

Now he can continue finding ways to dodge fighting Manny Pacquiao (someone who can hit back)....
unlike the mother of his children. He never understood why America didn't love him, like it did Sugar Ray Leonard. Because he acts like a thug.

Why is he wearing a sweat shirt and hoodie in Vegas with temps over 100? Excessive heat causes brain damage, maybe that's what's wrong with him.

So he received a 6 month sentence in which 3 wants were suspended by the Judge at the time of sentencing and he serves 2 out of 3 months and gets out for good behavior. So for a 6 month sentence he served 2 months ? I'm done with boxing and the crap that goes along with it!

This dude is a clown. How do you just get out of jail and commit another crime in front of the jail. Did you peep how he drove away with no seat belt on.

I may have to take my shoes off to keep track of all these blacks getting out of jail for violence! Women as targets?? "Getting lucky" doesn't mean winning the fight you had with her.
