Floyd Mayweather Jr. is headed to county jail (Clark County Detention Center in Nevada) in January and he has no one to blame but himself. He could have avoided all of this if he just fought Manny Pacquiao without the silly Olympic style drug test demands and he should have never got into a heated argument with his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris because many times in domestic disputes they usually side with the female. A woman can slash a man’s tires with a knife or even slap him and spit in his face, but the moment you make contact with a woman it’s already assault. I know it’s not fair but that’s usually how it is when it comes to these type of things. I mean you see it all the time women hitting men and rarely do you ever see that female getting in trouble for assault or looked down upon.
For boxing fans this is a huge blow because the Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather super fight is out the window and probably won’t be taking place in May or June of 2012. Everyone wanted to see Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather but the fight is one of those super-fights that probably will never materialize like Riddick Bowe vs. Lennox Lewis.
Instead of just getting into the boxing ring and fighting Pacquiao, Floyd will have to endure his first time in jail and spending time in the slammer is no vacation especially if you are a loud mouth small fighter without your bodyguards by your side. Floyd probably thought because he has so much money he could do anything he wants and thought if he hired the best lawyers he could get away with anything.
Here is a video clip of everyday life in the Clark County Detention Center a place where inmates would love to test a 147 pound boxer named “Pretty Boy” who loves to flaunt cash at clubs, assault security guards and hide behind his big bodyguards.
Floyd will not have his 280 pound bodyguards to watch his back while he serves time in the Clark County Detention Center. Maybe a guy of Floyd’s status and wealth will stay segregated from general population and not have to share his cell with another inmate. If he is let into general population he could get challenged by inmates who would love to brag about being the first to defeat the arrogant undefeated champion.
No matter what I think of Floyd Mayweather Jr. as a person or a boxer, I hope he is alright in jail and doesn’t get harmed. I hope he uses this time to reassess his life and make better decisions in the future and I hope he comes out somewhat humbled.
