Floyd Mayweather’s attorneys filed an emergency motion to serve the remainder of his three-month sentence under house arrest citing “inhumane conditions” at the Clark County Detention Center in Nevada.

The 35-year-old will argue in Las Vegas that he fears malnutrition and 23 hours confinement — a predetermined plan of Las Vegas police designed to protect Mayweather from other prisoners — each day are career-threatening conditions and could end his boxing career.

Mayweather’s attorney, Richard Wright, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Mayweather’s physical condition is deteriorating.

Mayweather was sentenced to serve 90 days after pleading guilty for beating his ex-girlfriend in front of their children in September 2010.
