    Mayweather jail sentence pushed back
    ESPN staff
    January 6, 2012

    A super-fight between Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Manny Pacquiao has cleared a hurdle after a judge delayed the American's 90-day jail sentence until June 1 - paving the way for a May 5 showdown.

    Mayweather had earmarked May 5 for his ring return, only to be handed a 90-day (with a further 90 suspended) prison term after pleading guilty to reduced battery domestic violence and harassment charges.

    The 34-year-old was supposed to report to jail on January 6 to begin his sentence, plunging a potential clash against fellow welterweight Pacquiao into doubt. However, the undefeated fighter, and widely considered pound-for-pound king, is now free to continue arranging a May bout with his rival after a judge delayed his jail sentence on Friday.

    With Mayweather appearing out of the immediate picture, Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum has drawn up a four-man shortlist for his charge's next opponent - although these alternative plans may now be shelved with a Las Vegas date with Mayweather now in the offing.
