G-Unit leader 50 Cent has provided an update on jailed friend and undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr., revealing the prized fighter is experiencing hardships at the start of his three-month bid.
While Fif did not get into many details, he made it clear Mayweather is not living the glamorous life behind bars.
The G-Unit CEO, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, also gave an update on his friend Floyd Mayweather, who is currently serving a three-month sentence for domestic battery of an ex-girlfriend in front of their two children. "He's not doing good right now," said 50. "He only been out seven hours since he been in there. They doin' everything to make this difficult." Right before Mayweather began his sentence last month, Fif told MTV News that the boxer has a deep connection with music. "Floyd has a huge passion for music that people don't know about," 50 explained. "It's a big part of what makes him comfortable and takes his mind off of how hard he has to work to stay being the #1 fighter in the world." (MTV)
This week, Mayweather lost a bout to have his jail sentenced reduced to house arrest.
Mayweather's legal team told the court this week that his personal physician, Dr. Robert Voy, visited the jail Friday and determined the fighter had lost muscle tone. Voy estimated Mayweather was consuming fewer than 800 calories a day instead of his usual 3,000 or 4,000 calories. Mayweather also wasn't drinking enough because he wasn't allowed bottled water and doesn't enjoy tap water. (Associated Press)
Details of his living conditions for the next three months were unveiled earlier this month.
RumorFix has obtained a mug shot of boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, as well as images of where he will be spending the next 90-days of his life. Mayweather was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Friday morning at approximately 11:00 a.m. He will spend time three months behind bars for a 2011 domestic violence conviction. According to a spokesmen with the jail, Mayweather has been placed in protective custody, which means he will be kept from the general inmate population. He will remain in his cell while other inmates of the housing unit are on free-time. When other inmates are on lock down, Mayweather will come out for his free time - which is limited to one hour per day. His cell is 7? x 14? or 6? x 10? and consists of a bed, toilet, sink and small desk. There is a window to allow direct sun light into the room. (RumorFix)
