Floyd Mayweather and Chris Brown hoop it up (Getty Images)Floyd Mayweather helps the city of Las Vegas make millions during his fight weekends. That was enough to convince a Las Vegas Justice of the Peace to delay Mayweather scheduled jail time.
More than a few observers were shocked by Melissa Saragosa's the change of heart, but not UFC president Dana White.
"Nothing surprises me with boxing anymore. Good for Floyd, he must have some damn good lawyers. 'Let's let this guy fight and make a few million bucks, then we'll have him go to jail.' That's incredible," chuckled White (6:33 mark).
Melissa Saragosa pointed to the proposed May 5th date as the reason she'd push back Mayweather's scheduled arrival until June 1. There's little that the Nevada State Athletic Commission will go along with the judge's decision and license Mayweather for the fight.
"What's strange to me is the Nevada State Athletic Commission wouldn't even let Chael Sonnen coach "The Ultimate Fighter and that guy cleared up all his problems. He didn't have a jail date pending and he wasn't even allowed to coach," White said on ESPN1100/98.9 FM in Las Vegas.Read More »from Dana White not surprised by Floyd Mayweather’s jail time delay
