Fans wondering what living conditions undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. will experience for the next 90 days can speculate no more with details from his Las Vegas jail now emerging online.
Reportedly in protective custody, Mayweather will not get mixed into the regular jail population.
RumorFix has obtained a mug shot of boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, as well as images of where he will be spending the next 90-days of his life. Mayweather was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Friday morning at approximately 11:00 a.m. He will spend time three months behind bars for a 2011 domestic violence conviction. According to a spokesmen with the jail, Mayweather has been placed in protective custody, which means he will be kept from the general inmate population. He will remain in his cell while other inmates of the housing unit are on free-time. When other inmates are on lock down, Mayweather will come out for his free time - which is limited to one hour per day. His cell is 7? x 14? or 6? x 10? and consists of a bed, toilet, sink and small desk. There is a window to allow direct sun light into the room. (RumorFix)

Last month, rap star 50 Cent discussed Mayweather's jail bid and wanting him to fight in the Big Apple upon his release this summer.
"Floyd's gotta go in, he's gotta go to jail," Fif said in an interview. "So when he comes out of jail, I want him to fight in New York. ... He hasn't fought in the East Coast, so I want to bring him to fight in, I don't know, maybe I'll get [Jay-Z] involved and we'll bring him to Brooklyn, to the new Nets stadium and if not that, then Yankees Stadium."
