Undefeated pretty-boy boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. was released from a Las Vegas Jail today (Friday) after serving two months of a 90-day sentence after pleading guilty in December to a felony charge of battery and entered pleas of no contest to two counts of harassment for supposedly harming his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, and verbal attacking his two young children that he has with her.

Mayweather was supposed to serve six months but the sentence was suspended.

He was taken into custody on June 1 after having the start of his jail term delayed in January so he could fight Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto in a May 5 super-welterweight bout in Las Vegas.

After effortlessly defeating  Cotto, Mayweather discussed a possible fight with Manny Pacquiao, his rival of the century, who some boxing critics believe may just be the only boxer who can actually beat Floyd fair and square.

Mayweather was greeted by dozens of friends and family members, but he left in a blue Bentley with 50 Cent and friends, without speaking to the media.

50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather have teamed up for a new venture called TMT Promotions.

The new company will take on established brands in the boxing world, to market, promote and produce high level boxing matches.

TMT Promotions already has a formidable stable of boxers, including IBF featherweight champion Billy Dib, Andre Berto, Zab Judah, Yuriorkis Gamboa and Andre Dirrell.

At 35-years-old Mayweather is said to be the best defensive and all around boxer of his generation. However many boxing fans debate his performance by making claims that he only fights opponents that he know he will win against. Thus his reasoning for never fighting Pacquiao and continuously having excuses as to why he will not accept the fighters on going challenges.

Now that Mayweather is out of prison we can only hope to see such a clash of boxing titans.
