Boxer Floyd Mayweather released from a Las Vegas jail

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been released from a Las Vegas detention center after serving two months of a three-month sentence for a domestic violence conviction, a detention center official said early Friday.

Video from CNN affiliate KVVU showed Mayweather leaving the facility.

The official from the Clark County Detention Center said Mayweather was no longer in custody. No explanation of why Mayweather was released before the end of his sentence was given.

The undefeated boxer was convicted last year after the police said he punched the mother of his children at his home.

      Read the story please, before making such a dumb comment. Floyd only beats on women outside of the ring. Biggest coward on earth.
