WBC Welterweight champion of the world, Floyd Mayweather Jr. was sentenced to three months in a Las Vegas  jail Wednesday, after pleading guily to to a misdemeanor battery domestic violence charge. He also pled no contest to two counts of harassment.

Mayweather will report to jail on Jan. 6, pending an appeal, and he will also have to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.

By pleading guilty to this charge, Mayweather avoided a hearing on a host of other charges including grand larcent and robbery that could have landed Mayweather in jail for 34 years, if found guilty. The charges were brought in response to a fight with his ex-girlfriend and two children in September 2010. Mayweather will also be pleading no contest to a separate misdemeanor battery charge stemming from a different incident. It too is covered in the plea agreement.

Mayweather last fought on Sept. 17 when he knocked out Victor Ortiz in the fourth round of their fight. Mayweather is a perfect 42-0 in his career and some consider him the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world.

You have to doubt that anyone will mess with him in jail.
