Floyd Mayweather has finally received punishment stemming from his 2010 domestic violence charges. 

 

On Wednesday, the boxer was sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to reduced battery, domestic violence and harassment charges.

 

In addition to the 90 days in jail, Las Vegas Judge Melissa Saragosa ordered Mayweather to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.

 

Mayweather was accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend and threatening two of their children during an argument at her home in September 2010.

 

The deal avoids trial on the charges.

 

Prosecutor Lisa Luzaich told the judge Mayweather has been in trouble before and hasn't been punished.

 

The 34-year-old Mayweather was ordered to report to jail on Jan. 6.
