Mayweather not eating in jail
MANILA, Philippines - Floyd Mayweather Jr. hasn't been feeling like a winner of late.
The undefeated American boxer is currently serving his 3-month sentence at the Clark County Detention Center after he was found guilty of domestic violence.
And he isn't happy.
On Friday, July 6, Mayweather -- or the person he has assigned to take over his official Twitter account -- tweeted a link "about Floyd's current status."
According to the article, the menu consists of meals mostly made of leftovers such as "American ghoulash, farmhouse stew, chili mac, cheeseburger casserole and Mexican stroganoff" -- all of which were listed on the jail's dinner menu.
And other meals are no better.
Lunch meals usually include a type of meat like turkey, ham or bologna, matched with bread and cold salads.
Mayweather's lawyers said their client has skipped most meals, and instead purchase fruits, bread and energy bars from the jail commissary.
The champion boxer has tried to ask a judge for house arrest -- citing the food as one of the reasons for the request -- but his plea was turned down . He is scheduled to leave jail on August 3.
His tweet with the link was followed a minute later with a mailing address, encouraging followers to write Mayweather a support letter. - Rappler.com
