Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s Jail time for Beating BabyMama Delayed Till June


   Undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. today avoided jail time until June 1 in a Las Vegas domestic violence case involving an attack on his ex-girlfriend while two of their children watched in September 2010.
     Mayweather had been scheduled to turn himself in Friday January 6,2011  to begin serving a 90-day sentence imposed last month.Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa said she weighed Mayweather's contractual obligations to a fight set for May at MGM Grand in Las Vegas against an as-yet unnamed opponent.
    His lawyer, Richard Wright had pleaded with the judge to allow Mayweather to fulfill commitments regarding the fight, emphasizing the economic benefit to Las Vegas when Mayweather fights.
   Mayweather pleaded guilty Dec. 21 to a reduced battery domestic violence charge and no contest to two harassment charges.
  Jail time was expected to limit training for a possible Cinco de Mayo date for a fight in Las Vegas, where Mayweather's management reserved a May 5 date at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for a possible fight.
