American undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr will remain in jail after his appeal for house arrest was denied by Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa.
The legal counsel of Floyd Jr filed an emergency appeal to the court for house arrest due the damage of health condition being suffered by the boxer. In the document submitted it
claimed Mayweather was enduring “inhumane conditions” at the Clark County Dentention Center. Further, the complaint said that he didn’t have enough to drink or eat and couldn’t maintain his physical fitness in jail.
The claim was supported by his personal doctor Robert Voy stated,” Any lengthy period of time with an inappropriate diet, coupled with lack of regular exercise, will most likely lead to irreversible damage to Mayweather’s physique. Such damage could and, most likely, would lead to Mayweather being unable to continue his boxing career”.
Justice Saragosa disagreed to Mayweather's compalints. In her letter she said,“that water has been made available to Mayweather around the clock and the only reason he isn’t eating properly is because he refuses to eat the provided meals and with regards to his complaint that he is unable to exercise in jail are unfounded. While the physical training areas and times provided to (Mayweather) may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses”.
