Mayweather ordered to remain in jail

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. will remain in Clark County Detention Center to finish his sentence as Las Vegas Justice Court has decided against hearing his attorney's motion he be moved to house arrest.

The motion to move Mayweather from CCDC followed complaints of dehydration and declining physical condition from the boxer and was scheduled to be heard Thursday morning.

The court's decision and order reads, in part:

The Court finds the alleged dehydration of the Defendant to be self-induced as water is made available to him twenty-four hours a day. The Court further finds the estimated intake of only 800 calories per day is also self-inflicted as Defendant chooses not to eat the food provided. Finally, the court finds that while the physical training areas and times provided to Defendant may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses.

To the extent that Defendant's motion suggests a civil rights violation or potential challenge to the conditions of his confinement, the Court finds such issues are outside of the jurisdiction of the Justice Court.

The notion of moving Mayweather to house arrest was protested heavily by women's shelter Safe Nest and other advocates, suggesting that such a move would signal southern Nevada doesn't take violence against women seriously.

Mayweather surrendered to authorities on June 1 to begin an 87-day sentence in connection with a domestic violence case.

He was expected to be separated from other inmates at the Clark County Detention Center during his term.
