Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to be released from jail
Embattled boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. will be a free man again this weekend as the fighter is scheduled to be released from jail in Las Vegas on Friday.
The champ will have served two months in a domestic battery case upon his exit from the Clark County Detention Center.
Reports suggest Mayweather, Jr. was granted time off his 90-day sentence for good behaviour.
He began his stint behind bars on June 1 after pleading guilty to misdemeanour charges in a September 2010 fight with his girlfriend, Josie Harris, in front of the couple's two kids.
Upon his release, he will have a new pitch man in his corner as best pal 50 Cent recently announced he would be arranging Mayweather, Jr's upcoming fights as part of a new promotional venture co-funded by the boxer.
