Boxing great Floyd Mayweather has plead guilty to domestic violence charges stemming from a 2010 incident involving the mother of three of his kids and his sentence has officially been handed down.

Kevin Iole with the word:

Judge sentences Floyd Mayweather Jr. to 90 days in jail after guilty plea to domestic violence charge. In addition to 90 days in jail, Mayweather must pay $2500 fine, 100 hours of community service and enroll in domestic violence counseling. Should be noted that Mayweather will get credit for three days served, so he serves 87 days beginning on Jan. 6, 2012.

Mayweather took a plea deal to reduce felony battery charges to misdemeanor assault and harrassment. He was sentenced to six months in jail but three months were suspended, and, as noted, he'll get credit for three days served.

The charges come from an incident in Sept. 2010 in which Mayweather was accused by his ex-girlfriend of beating her up and threatening to kill her, as well as threatening their children.

This comes on the heels of talks recently heating up regarding a potential superfight against Manny Pacquiao, which would reportedly be targeted for May 5. If Mayweather indeed serves all 87 days starting Jan. 6, it would leave little time to make the fight happen on that date.

Sorry, fight fans. All that drama with his baby mama has gotten in the way.
