Mayweather Won’t See Pacquiao Fight In Vegas Jail

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Floyd Mayweather Jr. doesn’t have access to a television, computer or telephone in the small solo jail cell where he’s beginning the second week of a three-month jail sentence in a domestic violence case in Las Vegas.

That means Mayweather won’t be able to see rival Manny Pacquiao’s pay-per-view fight Saturday night against Timothy Bradley.

Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassell tells The Associated Press that lots of mail has arrived for Mayweather since someone posted the undefeated five-division champion’s inmate number and address on Twitter.

Cassell says jail mail is screened, and some photos to Mayweather have been confiscated as “inappropriate.”

Mayweather’s lawyers and his adviser, Leonard Ellerbe, didn’t immediately respond Friday to messages.

Mayweather is serving time for attacking his ex-girlfriend while two of their children watched.
