Floyd Mayweather Jr. was released early Friday morning from a Las Vegas jail after serving two months of a three-month sentence for misdemeanor domestic battery charges.

Mayweather was greeted by 20 familly members and friends as he walked out of the Clark County Detention Center to resume his boxing career, reports ESPN.

Mayweather hugged his family and friends then drove away in a blue Bentlley with rapper and possible promoter 50 cent before speaking to the media.

Mayweather, 35, pleaded guilty to domestic battery charges after he attacked his former girlfriend, Josie Harris in front of their three children. Mayweather could have gotten 34 years in prison if he had not taken the plea deal, which allowed him to avoid trial on felony charges.

Before Mayweather can get back in the ring he will need a new license to fight in Las Vegas from the Nevada Athletic Commission. His last license for his bout against Miguel Cotto was only for that fight.

Potential opponents for Mayweather's next fight could be Andre Berto, Timothy Bradley, who defeated Manny Pacquiao while Mayweather was in jail, and Robert Guerrero among others.

A Money Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight will likely not happen in 2012.
