Now that Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his perfectly pedicured toes are serving his 90-day jail sentence, he’s being treated like any other inmate at the Clark County Detention Center. That includes no special TV privileges, meaning Mayweather won’t get to watch his favorite enemy Manny Pacquiao‘s fight with Timothy Bradley this Saturday.

“I am not going to say that he absolutely won’t be able to watch it because it’s in the future,” Bill Cassell, a spokesman for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said, according to Game On!. “However, nothing special is being done to provide this television program or any other program in the jail. We don’t plan on having pay-for-view in the jail. Now, if ESPN or some other channel runs a repeat, he may be able to view it then.”

If Pacquiao bests the underdog Bradley, it still keeps alive whatever glimmering hope there is left for a megafight to take place between Mayweather and Pacquiao. Both say they would like to see each other in the ring, despite making almost every possible lame excuse to not go through with it.

But with Mayweather in jail for the next three months, at least he can’t duck away from fighting Pacquiao like he usually does by scheduling a bout with, like, Antonio Margarito or anybody else not named Manny Pacquiao.
