Floyd Mayweather sentenced to jail

    Boxer Floyd Mayweather was sentenced to six months in jail for the 2010 assault of his babymama, Josie Harris.

    The case just recently made its way in front of a judge, who decided to deliver the boxer a knockout.

    "No matter who you are, you have consequences to your actions when they escalate to this level of violence," Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa told Floyd.

    Luckily for Floyd, his lawyers were able to reach a deal that will allow him to serve only 90 days and participate in community service, TMZ reports.

    Floyd will also have to attend a yearlong domestic violence course and pay a $2,500 fine.

    Without the plea, the boxer could have served as many as 34 years behind bars.

    Although he received a much shorter sentence, this stint may prevent the boxer from taking on challenger Manny Pacquiao in what would likely be a highly promoted fight.

    According to ABC News, Floyd will be able to spend the holidays as a free man. He will begin his sentence on Jan. 6.
