Floyd Mayweather's jail sentence starts today after a domestic violence conviction. The start of his stint was postponed due to his fight last month with Miguel Cotto, a fight that Mayweather won, but was more difficult than many expected. The sentence is for 87 days, but it's highly likely that Floyd will spend somewhere around 50-60 before being released.
Despite all the pretending that this will be like in some movie where Floyd is thrown in with the worst of society, he'll spend the first week separated from the general population and will likely be kept in a solo cell for his entire stay. He also will be kept pretty well safe and supervised and can have money in an account where he can buy snacks and other "luxuries."
It's not going to be a holiday for Floyd by any means, but he's not going to be fighting for his life every day or anything.
Floyd is planning to fight again before the end of the year, but it is probable that he fights in early 2013 instead.
