TMZ - Floyd Mayweather, Jr. says he's begun to shrivel up into a puny regular person during his first 12 days in the big house ... and he's worried he won't be able to bounce back in time to save his boxing career...Floyd is currently locked up for beating his baby mama in front of their kids last year...In the docs, Mayweather says he spends 23 hours-per-day locked in isolation for his own safety. But he claims the imprisonment is taking a "cruel and inhuman" toll on his rippling physique because he can't train at a world class level while serving his time...Floyd's doctor also told the court he's concerned about Floyd's diet ... because he used to eat 3,000 to 4,000 calories per day ... and now, the doc believes FM is eating less than 800.
You know what? I respect the hell out of this. I was all ready to rip him for asking to get out early, but after reading that, I just can't. I couldn't stop laughing the whole way through. It's the most blunt, stripped down, and honest plea for release from jail that I think I've ever heard.
He's not apologizing for what he's done, saying he's learned his lesson, claiming he's reformed, or that he doesn't derserve this, or any of the usual stuff. No, Money Mayweather cuts right to the point.
He might as well have wrote a letter to the judge that said "Dear Judge, jail kinda sucks and is limiting my freedom, can I go home now?" Just as plain as day, like a kid asking to get off the timeout chair in the corner because he's losing valuable Tonka Truck playing time. You've got to respect that kind of honesty...Free Mayweather!
PS: I don't think Floyd's doing jail right, to be honest. Complaining about the lack of world class training flies in the face of everything I've ever learned about jail. Up until now I would have assumed if athletes wanted to get in shape, they'd do a 6-12 month stretch in Pelican Bay, I've never seen an inmate portrayed as anything but jacked, honestly thought Mayweather would have came out of the clink as a legit heavyweight, I guess that's not the case?
