Las Vegas – Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been released from jail after serving a majority of his sentence stemming from a domestic battery charge. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Mayweather, 35, served two of his three-month sentence for a misdemeanor domestic battery, receiving time off for good behavior.
Attorneys for the boxer purported in court documents the jail time could pose of risk to Mayweather’s career due to a lack of accommodations for his exercise and dietary needs.
Mayweather reportedly left the Clark County Detention Center last Friday without talking to reporters who had assembled around the building, but hugged relatives and friends who had gathered to meet him upon his release.
Mayweather was ranked by Forbes as the highest paid athlete in 2011, having amassed $85 million in earnings last year.
