Judge Denies Floyd Mayweather Emergency Release

Was this really a SHOCKER?!?!?!?! I think not! If you remember earlier this week I reported that boxing champ Floyd Mayweather’s legal team filed motions for Mayweather to receive an emergency release from prison because the “low-quality food and water” was jeopardizing his overall health. (And WHY is 50-cent coming to court with him??)

Late Wednesday afternoon, Judge Melissa Saragosa denied the motion stating he should eat and drink what is being given to him behind bars. She also wrote that water has been made available to Mayweather around the clock and the only reason he isn't eating properly is because he refuses to eat the provided meals. "While the physical training areas and times provided to (Mayweather) may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses," Saragosa wrote. Now last time I checked Mayweather was in jail, not a suite at the Four Seasons, sorry…let me continue. In an effort to add some creditably to this claim, Mayweather’s legal team had his personal physician, Dr. Robert Voy visit the jail Friday, and his conclusion was that he had lost muscle tone. Voy guessed that Mayweather was consuming fewer than 800 calories a day instead of his usual 3,000 or 4,000 calories, plus he wasn’t drinking enough because he wasn't allowed bottled water since he doesn’t do tap water. Again NOT the Four Seasons! "I am concerned about Floyd withdrawing, developing anger he cannot dissipate through the usual means of dedicated exercise and training," Voy wrote in an affidavit. "Boxing has been Mr. Mayweather's life since he was a young man and we need champions of this type to continue to their natural retirement and hopefully their contributions to society thereafter." I really don’t need to say it again, but this is jail. Now I could be wrong but the entire purpose of jail is to punish you for your crimes. Right??? Just like anyone else Floyd Mayweather should be held to the same standards as his fellow inmates. No bottled water, no pay-per-view, no steaks and no excessive exercise routine. I’m Just Sayin!
