Judge denies Mayweather's request for early jail release
Floyd Mayweather Jr. had his request for an early release from prison denied by a Las Vegas judge on Wednesday, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Mayweather is currently serving a sentence in jail for a domestic battery charge, dating back to an incident between Mayweather and his former girlfriend in front of their two children.
On Friday Mayweather's personal physician made a visit to the jail, where he noticed considerable muscle loss on the boxing champion. The physician noted that Mayweather was likely consuming only a fraction of his regular calorie intake, and that he wasn't drinking enough water, because he doesn't like tap water and they would not allow him bottles.
On top of the poor quality of food and water, Mayweather's people complained about the lack of exercise time and physical activity space.
At a court hearing on Tuesday, prosecutor Lisa Luzaich reacted to the claims by saying, "It's jail. Where did he think he was going? The Four Seasons?"
The judge's ruling on Wednesday shared the prosecution's lack of sympathy, "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."
