Finally, Floyd Mayweather has suffered a defeat. By technical knockout, if you ask us.
Following a positively ridiculous petition from the athlete's lawyer - stating Mayweather should be released early from his 87-day prison term because he's wasting away and his career is at risk - a Nevada judge has responded and basically told the star boxer:
Cry me a frickin river.
Denying Mayweather's request, the judge said in court yesterday that the athlete's supposedly withering physical state is "self-induced, as water is made available twenty-four hours a day."
He also called BS on the gripe that Mayweather's diet consists of just a few hundred calories/day, adding that "[Floyd] chooses not to eat the food provided" and concluding:
"While the training areas and times provided to Floyd may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses."
Here's a crazy suggestion, Floyd Mayweather: the next time you're worried about your training suffering behind bars, do not beat your baby mama.
