Mayweather Free at Last

Floyd Mayweather was released from the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas this morning having served two months of a three-month sentence after having plead guilty to a charge of domestic battery.

Despite his lawyers’ argument that jail, lack of exercise, and unpalatable food was doing irreparable damage to his health, Floyd looked fit as a fiddle.

Mayweather did not speak to the media upon his release. He walked from jail, climbed into a blue Bentley with his 12-year-old daughter, Iyanna Mayweather, his manager Leonard Ellerbe, and his best friend and business partner 50 Cent, before driving away.

Speculation about who Mayweather fights next is running rampant and is premature. He just got out of jail and wants to spend time with his family, friends and fiancé. And who can blame him?

There will be plenty of time to spill countless words about Mayweather’s next huge pay-per-view fight. But the time is not now. Let’s give Floyd, not to mention the readers, a little breathing room.

Insofar as the newsworthiness of Money’s release, it may be as Andre Ward tweeted: “If you didnt know the story you would think he is the new Nelson Mandela going by the way some people tell it!!”

    Mayweather is a scumbag. Low class lowlife who is glorified by the masses, who are more pathetic than he is.
