Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Less than two weeks into his jail sentence, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants out.
Mayweather was sentenced to three months in jail on a domestic battery charge. He turned himself in on June 1 to begin his sentence.
According to an emergency motion that was filed on June 11, the boxer's body is deteriorating under the stress of being jailed at the Clark County Detention Center and he is being held in "inhumane conditions."
Mayweather has been in an isolation cell since he was locked up.
He is only allowed out of his cell for one hour a day. The CCDC determined that it would be best to keep him in an isolation cell to protect him and other inmates.
The emergency motion argues that Mayweather was convicted of misdemeanor offenses and not a felony and is being punished with "the greatest punishment available at CCDC."
The 35-page motion also contains an affidavit from Mayweather's personal physician.
Dr. Robert Voy examined Mayweather at the CCDC on June 8. After his examination, Voy said that he was concerned about the boxer's dehydrated appearance, his lack of muscle tone and his dry mucus membranes.
Voy also expressed concern about the type, quantity and quality of food that Mayweather is being provided by the jail and about his lack of opportunity to exercise.
Voy concluded that an inappropriate diet for an athlete, couple with lack of regular exercise, would most likely lead to "irreversible damage" to Mayweather's physique.
Voy also concluded that such damage would lead to Mayweather being unable to continue his boxing career.
In addition, Voy expressed concern that Mayweather would withdraw and develop anger that he could not get rid of through the usual means of dedicated exercise and training.
Other complaints included Mayweather only being allowed two video visits per week with friends or family (inmates in general population are allowed three); only one hour per day in which to shower, watch television, use hot water to prepare food, and use the phone or exercise; cannot participate in group counseling, educational classes or group meetings; cannot interact with other inmates; and cannot be considered for trustee status and gain additional credit for time off.
According to the court documents, Mayweather is requesting house arrest since he cannot be placed in general population. He is willing to work with jail officials to set up "an appropriate location."
Mayweather is currently scheduled to be released from CCDC on Aug. 3.
An emergency hearing has not yet been scheduled to consider the motion.
