Saragosa said when she sentenced Mayweather that she was particularly troubled that he threatened and hit Harris while their two sons watched. The boys were 10 and 8 at the time. The older boy ran out a back door to get a security guard in the gated community.

Mayweather pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery and no contest to two harassment charges.

Prosecutors dropped felony robbery, coercion, and grand larceny charges stemming from allegations that he threatened the boys and took cellphones from Harris and his son. Combined, the charges could have gotten him up to 34 years in prison.

The misdemeanor conviction was one of several since 2002 for Mayweather in battery and violence cases in Las Vegas and in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich.

As part of his plea deal in the domestic battery case, he pleaded no contest and paid a $1,000 fine for a November 2010 scuffle with a homeowner association security guard in an argument about parking tickets.

He was acquitted last October of misdemeanor allegations that he threatened two homeowner association security guards during a separate parking ticket argument.

He was acquitted by a Nevada jury in July 2005 after being accused of hitting and kicking Harris during an argument outside a Las Vegas nightclub, and he received a suspended one-year jail sentence and was ordered to undergo impulse-control counseling after his conviction in 2002 of misdemeanor battery in another nightclub fight with two women.

He was fined in Grand Rapids in February 2005 and ordered to perform community service after pleading no contest to misdemeanor assault and battery for a bar fight.

Mayweather also faces a civil lawsuit in Las Vegas from two men who allege he orchestrated a shooting attack on them outside a skating rink in 2009. Police have never accused Mayweather of firing shots and he has never been criminally charged in the case.

Mayweather’s jail stay will be capped at 87 days, because the judge gave him credit for three days previously served. It could be reduced by several weeks for good behavior, Cassell said.

Mayweather also was ordered to complete the yearlong domestic violence counseling program, 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.

His lawyer, Karen Winckler, said Mayweather has paid the fine.

Mayweather’s standard administrative segregation cell will have a bunk, stainless steel toilet and sink, a steel and wood desk with a permanently bolted stool and two small vertical windows with opaque safety glass.

The 7-by-12-foot cell will be a far cry from Mayweather’s nearly 12,800-square-foot, two-story mansion on a cul de sac in an exclusive guarded community several miles south of the Las Vegas Strip. Mayweather’s home has two garages, five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and a swimming pool and hot tub overlooking a golf course.

Mayweather could have about an hour a day out of his cell with access to an exercise yard, Cassell said. Depending on his behavior, the boxer could later get several hours a day for exercise with other inmates also being held in protective custody.
