Floyd Mayweather Jr. turned himself in today to begin his sentence for domestic battery and harassment charges stemming from a 2010 incident involving his then-girlfriend, Josie Harris.

“Money” Mayweather’s legal troubles began in the fall of 2010 when he and the mother of his three children battled over a cell phone which resulted in his pulling her hair and twisting her arm. The pair’s antics were witnessed by the couple’s three young children, one of whom ran to get help from his gated community’s security guard.

Now Mayweather will spend time in a cell that is even teenier than a boxing ring with floor space just big enough to do sit-ups. Officials at the Clark County Detention Center will segregate Money May from the other 3,200 inmates in general population for at least his first week for security purposes.

The jail does not have a pay-per-view channel, so Mayweather will miss the highly publicized June 9, WBO welterweight fight between his nemesis Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley.

When Mayweather was first sentenced in December, the presiding judge allowed him to remain free so he could prepare for his Miguel Cotto bout in Las Vegas on May 5. Mayweather was victorious and the fight garnered him a whopping $32 million while Cotto received $8 million.

If Mayweather’s attorney’s had not negotiated a plea deal, the boxing champ could have received 34 years in prison if convicted on all accused counts.

Mayweather was also ordered to complete a year long domestic violence counseling program, 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine. He received credit for serving three days in jail and will only be required to stay another 87 days for his crime.

He can get out sooner for good behavior.
