Not many athletes go to jail and come out the other side. But that’s exactly what Mayweather did after he emerged from the depths of Hell. He deserved his incarceration after he violently assaulted his girlfriend. This is inexcusable and he enjoyed two months of Nevada penitentiary hospitality.
It would have been easy for Mayweather to go down an even darker path but he didn’t. He returned to boxing and became one of the biggest stars on the planet. The fighter also topped the Forbes Richest Athletes list for several years before he retired in 2017. We don’t need to respect him but this deserves acknowledgement (via Essentially Sports).
