Floyd Mayweather Jr’s request for house arrest could get a ruling on Thursday.
A Las Vegas judge said a decision could be made on Thursday.
Mayweather has been in prison since June 1 but his lawyers asked Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa this week that the five-division world champion be allowed to serve his sentence under house arrest.
The lawyers explained that Mayweather will struggle to remain fit if he is kept in a jail cell 23 hours a day, and he may not be able to fight again. He is in solitary confinement and has not been moved to the general population of the Clark County Detention Center because of his celebrity status.
Mayweather was sentenced to 87 days in prison for domestic battery.
