Boxing: Mayweather jailed for attack

A Las Vegas judge has sentenced boxer Floyd Mayweather to six months behind bars for a 2010 attack on the mother of his children, but half of that jail term was suspended, officials said, according to Eurosport. Mayweather, the World Boxing Council welterweight champion, pleaded guilty to one count of battery and no contest to two counts of harassment after reaching a deal with prosecutors, said Mary Ann Price, spokeswoman for the Clark County Courts. Those charges were part of a criminal complaint against Mayweather, 34, that originally included charges of robbery, grand larceny and coercion over an altercation at the home of his former girlfriend, Josie Harris. Mayweather, who lives in Las Vegas, must report to court on January 6 to be transferred to jail, officials said. The boxer known as “Money” improved his professional record to a perfect 42-0, including 26 knockouts, with a fourth-round knockout of Victor Ortiz in Las Vegas in September to claim the World Boxing Council welterweight title.
