Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn't even half-way through his three-month jail sentence, but he's already asking the judge for mercy. The boxer was denied a request to be freed from jail, after claiming the conditions are causing his health to diminish—which could be detrimental to his career.
According to a letter released by Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa Wednesday (June 13), Mayweather refuses to eat the food, and drink the water behind bars. “The court finds the alleged dehydration of the defendant to be self-induced as water is made available to him 24 hours a day,” she wrote. “The court further finds the estimated intake of only 800 calories per day is also self-induced as defendant chooses not to eat the food provided.”
She also discredited the 35-year-old's claims that he is unable to exercise properly. “While the physical training areas and times provided to [Mayweather] may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses.”
Mayweather turned himself in to authorities June 1, for assaulting the mother of his children in 2010.
As one of the highest paid athletes in sports, Mayweather is understandably used to certain amenities, and treated himself to a pedicure before going into custody.
