Boxer Mayweather completes plea deal in Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A lawyer for Floyd Mayweather Jr. has pleaded
no contest on his behalf under a plea deal to resolve a misdemeanor
battery case stemming from a scuffle with a Las Vegas homeowner
association security guard.

The 34-year-old Mayweather did not appear in person Friday. He's
due to start a 90-day jail sentence Jan. 6 after pleading guilty
Dec. 21 to misdemeanor battery domestic violence and no contest to
harassment in a separate case.

Mayweather acknowledged hitting his ex-girlfriend and
threatening two of their three children during a September 2010
argument at the woman's home.

The looming jail sentence raises doubts about a long-anticipated
fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

The plea deal has the boxer paying a $1,000 fine to avoid trial
and more jail time.

Mayweather's attorney declined comment.
