Jail looms after holiday for Mayweather in Vegas
3-month jail sentence looms for boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas after New Year holiday
By The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) ' Champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be giving up his training schedule, club-hopping and relaxation in his million-dollar country club home when he begins a three-month stay in a Las Vegas jail after the New Year's holiday.

Mayweather's lawyers and his promoter-manager didn't say Thursday whether the 34-year-old Mayweather will ask a Las Vegas judge to reconsider her decision to sentence the undefeated prizefighter to 90 days in county jail for misdemeanor battery domestic violence and harassment.

Mayweather was sentenced Wednesday for attacking his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, and threatening their two sons in September 2010 at Harris' home. The judge ordered Mayweather to surrender Jan. 6.

The jail sentence raises doubts about a long-hoped-for fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, a champion fighter from the Philippines.
