FLOYD MAYWEATHER: JAIL TERM POSTPONED
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- He's in trouble for fighting with his wife. But a judge in Las Vegas has delayed a jail sentence for boxer Floyd Mayweather Junior -- so he can take part in a prize fight. A judge has postponed Mayweather's jail sentence so the boxer can fight May 5 against an opponent who has yet to be named. The ruling to delay the 90-day sentence came with the fighter's managers and supporters, including rapper Lil Kim and R&B singer Ray J in the courtroom. Mayweather himself wasn't in court on Friday. He was waiting in a nearby building to hear whether he would need to report to jail immediately. Mayweather pleaded guilty last month to a charge he attacked his ex-girlfriend while two of their kids watched in September, 2010. Among the arguments made by the boxer's lawyers: that having Mayweather fight in Vegas would bring an economic boost to the city. A prosecutor argued that Mayweather should have to serve his sentence "just like anyone else."
