Floyd Mayweather, Jr.‘s lawyer request that he be released from jail because the low-quality food and water have threatened his health was denied by a Las Vegas judge!
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.”
A mere 10 days after Mayweather turned himself in to begin his three-month sentence, his legal team filed an emergency motion Monday asking the court to put him under house arrest or move him into the general jail population – something that jail officials had avoided to protect the celebrity fighter. The motion claimed the undefeated champion might never fight again because he was getting out of shape in solitary confinement.
