    Prizefighter Floyd Mayweather Jr., sentenced in December after pleading guilty to domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend, has begun his three-month jail term. Mayweather’s friend, the rapper 50 Cent, appeared with the boxer at court in Las Vegas, and said that the brawler would be “all right” behind bars. The boxing champion’s attack on Josie Harris took place in 2010, and occurred with two of the couple’s children present. His sentence was delayed so that he could face Miguel Cotto in the ring early in May, a fight Mayweather won, reportedly netting a purse totaling $32 million.
