A Las Vegas judge has denied Mayweather's request to serve the remainder of his 90-day jail sentence for domestic abuse under house arrest, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
Mayweather's legal team filed an emergency motion 12 days into his three-month sentence, asking that the rest of his domestic battery term be served at home, according to the Los Angeles Review-Journal. The boxer's attorney, Richard Wright, reportedly argued that Mayweather is being treated differently because Las Vegas police have isolated him due to his celebrity status. In the motion filed, Wright said that Mayweather is under "inhumane conditions," and that his client is physically deteriorating to the point that he may never fight again.
Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa determined that the sentence is appropriate, though, saying that Mayweather's claim that he was dehydrated and his estimate that he was consuming only 800 calories a day was "self induced."
Saragosa also denied Mayweather's claim that he had insufficient time and space to keep up with his training regimen.
"Finally, the court finds that while the physical training areas and times provided to Defendant may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses," Saragosa reportedly said.
Mayweather's sentence is scheduled to end Aug. 3.
