Mayweather released from prison

3:46 pm on 4 August 2012

The American boxer Floyd Mayweather has been released from a Las Vegas prison after serving two months of a three-month sentence for domestic battery.

Photographs published in local media showed one of the boxer's daughters and rapper 50 Cent waiting for him at the exit. The boxer made no comment to reporters.

Mayweather was sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to striking his former girlfriend as their children watched in September 2010.

He began serving his sentence at the Clark County Detention Center on June 1st.

Mayweather -- whose record stands at 43-0 -- has yet to fight Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao in the bout most boxing fans have sought for several years while both men are at the peak of their skills.
