Is Floyd Mayweather Jr. Finished?

For the first time I can truly say I'm concerned Floyd Mayweather Jr. may not be able to beat Manny Pacquiao. Earlier this week Mayweather was sentenced to 90 days in jail putting the champ behind bars until early April. Is this the end of an era?

I honestly can't say. There's no way to tell how the experience will affect him mentally. Physically he'll be fine and I'm sure he'll receive "special" privileges while incarcerated. He's more likely to do his time like Henry Hill in Goodfellas as opposed to being locked up in Oz if you know what I'm saying. Still his ego is fragile (the guy eats with his own set of gold utensils) and those 90 days may change him forever.

The last thing we need is a more humble, grounded, appreciative Floyd Mayweather Jr. We need the villain, the arrogant narcissist who speaks about himself in the 3rd person. The guy that talks about people's families and punches out security guards just for living. The Annikan Skywalker of the crew.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has all the time in the world to become a good person after his boxing career is over. A change in his personality, routine, and lifestyle would jeopardize his boxing legacy. You get the best fighter out of Floyd Mayweather when he's at his worst. Just 2 more fights and then we can turn him into Bill Cosby. For now let him continue to be a pompous ass. A lot can happen in 90 days. Let's hope nothing happens to Floyd's psyche.
