Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. might be undefeated inside the ring, but behind bars, he's throwing in the towel just two weeks into his meager three month sentence.

Too bad Las Vegas Judge Melissa Saragosa won't stop the fight.

According to a report from Yahoo! Sports, Mayweather must continue serving the rest of his 87 days at the Clark County Detention Center after pleading guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery and no contest to two harassment charges for a 2010 domestic violence incident involving the mother of three of his kids.

Attorneys for "Money" made an "emergency request" to have their client serve the remainder of his sentence under house arrest, claiming Mayweather was "dehydrated, not eating well and unable to exercise" while incarcerated.

According to the Associated Press, Mayweather is reportedly "housed in a standard administrative segregation cell no larger than 7-by-12 feet, with a bunk, stainless steel toilet and sink, a steel and wood desk with a permanently bolted stool and two small vertical windows with opaque safety glass."

The pugilist was also "expected to have about an hour a day out of his cell with access to an exercise yard. Depending on his behavior, the boxer could later get several hours a day for exercise with other inmates also being held in protective custody."

I guess life in the big house isn't all it's cracked up to be. Or perhaps Mayweather isn't. Either one seems plausible.

In addition to 90 days in jail (with credit for three days served), Mayweather was also forced to pay a $2500 fine, which is sure to break the bank, considering he made $32 million for beating up Miguel Cotto earlier this year. He's also saddled with 100 hours of community service and will be required to enroll in domestic violence counseling.
