Mayweather to trade mansion for Vegas jail cell

Floyd Mayweather Jr. may be one of the richest prizefighters ever.

But the boxer who uses the nickname "Money" is about to trade life in a posh five-bedroom Las Vegas home for almost three months in a cell about one-third the size of a small boxing ring.

He's scheduled to surrender Friday before a Las Vegas judge who sentenced him Dec. 22 for his guilty plea to reduced domestic battery charges in a hair-pulling, arm-twisting attack in September 2010 on the mother of three of his children.

The judge let Mayweather remain free long enough to fight and defeat Miguel Cotto on May 5.
