Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be forced to stay behind bars after his request to serve the remainder of his three-month domestic violence sentence under house arrest was denied by a judge on Wednesday.

Mayweather’s attorney Richard Wright filed an emergency motion seeking the champion boxer’s sentence be modified to include house arrest because Mayweather is dehydrated, losing weight and unable to maintain his training routine and that his conditions at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas were “inhumane.” (Oh, I’m sorry; I thought he was supposed to be in prison.)

Furthermore, Mayweather’s legal team argues that his time in jail is jeopardizing his career. The judge obviously called those claims bogus. Here’s the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

Wright argued the boxer is being treated differently because Las Vegas police have isolated him because of his celebrity status. Wright proposed several sentence modifications, which included full-term house arrest or serving three days a week in the jail and the remainder on house arrest.

Mayweather lives in a 12,000-square-foot mansion in the ritzy Southern Highlands development, which sports a walk-in closet bigger than his jail cell.

Oh, the humanity!

“I’m not looking for special treatment for Floyd Mayweather,” Wright said. “I’m looking for fair treatment.”

The good news for Mayweather, if his sentence actually does hurt his career, is that in boxing you don’t even need to be the better fighter to win anymore.
