Floyd Mayweather is just 12 days into his 87 day jail sentence and his lawyer is seriously concerned with his health, according to Sporting News.Mayweather’s lawyer Richard Wright is trying to get the judge to let Mayweather serve the rest of his sentence on house arrest after Dr. Robert Voy visited the boxer at jail on Friday and said he was concerned he was losing body mass.
From Sporting News:
Voy estimated the boxer was consuming fewer than 800 calories a day — a drop from his usual 3,000 or 4,000 calories — and wasn’t drinking enough because he isn’t allowed bottled water and doesn’t usually drink tap water.
Did Mayweather really think there would be an unlimited supply of Fiji bottled water in his jail cell?
Voy is also concerned that Mayweather is getting minimal exercise, but prosecutor Lisa Luzaich says Mayweather “has the ability to exercise but chooses not to” and is declining a lot of his food.
Mayweather’s prima donna attitude is not all that surprising considering he got a pedicure before he headed off to serve his sentence.
