Update: [Video] - Floyd Mayweather Pleads Guilty To Domestic Violence, Gets 3 Months!

Via LA Times:

Mayweather pleads guilty to a reduced domestic violence charge in Las Vegas, putting in jeopardy a potential fight with Manny Pacquiao in late spring.

A Las Vegas judge Wednesday sentenced boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. to 90 days in jail for his role in a 2010 domestic violence case involving two of his children and their mother.

Mayweather pleaded guilty to a reduced domestic-violence misdemeanor charge and no contest to two harassment misdemeanor charges in the Clark County (Nev.) courthouse.

The jail sentence complicates, and perhaps scraps, plans for a late-spring fight between Mayweather (42-0) and Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao.

"You don't need to be a genius to count the days," said a person in Pacquiao's camp, who was unauthorized to speak publicly.

With Mayweather scheduled to report to jail Jan. 6, his 90-day term would expire in early April. Clark County Court spokeswoman Mary Ann Price said, "He will likely spend approximately 65 days in custody," based on receiving 22 days of "good-time [behavior] credit," in addition to three other days of credit for time served.

Under that scenario, Mayweather would be released by March 11.

Mayweather had reserved May 5 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for his next bout, but he typically requires eight weeks of training. Plus, a Mayweather fight requires a longer window for a full promotional schedule.
