No More Mayhem with Mayweather – 3 Things Boxing’s Champ Should Consider While in Jail


By James L. Walker, Jr. – 

What a difference a few days can make. Less than three weeks after Floyd “Money” Mayweather – the sports world’s highest paid athlete – went to jail as part of his 90 day sentence for a domestic violence conviction, several things have changed.

His chief rival Manny Pacquiao – the world’s second richest athlete and long rated as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world – unceremoniously lost. And Mayweather, a five-division world champion and holder of eight world titles himself, also lost; not a match but rather his bid to leave jail early as a Las Vegas judge denied his motion protesting the lock-up’s bad food and lack of workout space.

Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry is “battling for his life” after falling from the back of a pickup truck Wednesday during what Charlotte, N.C., police described as a domestic dispute with his fiancee.

UPDATE: Henry died at 6:36 a.m. Thursday (December 17). Henry was 26. He became engaged to Loleini Tonga in March. The couple has been raising three children.

Henry was found in the road in south Charlotte “apparently suffering life-threatening injuries,” according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

Police said a dispute began at a home just before noon and Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as his fiancee Loleini Tonga was driving away from the residence.

“The domestic situation continued between the operator and Mr. Henry,” the police said in a statement. “At some point while she was driving, Mr. Henry came out of the back of the vehicle.”
