    Boxer Protests Unfair Treatment of Floyd Mayweather 

    CONTACT: Paul Johnson

    June 14, 2012

    Former middleweight boxer Paul Johnson feels so strongly about the treatment of Floyd Mayweather by correction officials in Las Vegas that he left his home in Minnesota to protest in front of the Clark County Detention Center.

    Mr. Johnson believes that Floyd Mayweather should serve the full three month sentence imposed by the court for domestic violence. However, the court determined that his actions were a misdemeanor and Mr. Johnson says he should be treated the same as other misdemeanor offenders. He is not. Floyd Mayweather is put in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day, which Mr. Johnson believes is unfair and inhumane treatment. His protest is designed to urge the Clark County Detention Center to find an alternative.

    Correction officials in Las Vegas say that Floyd Mayweather is in solitary confinement for his own protection from other inmates in the general population. Johnson’s response is that if the Clark County Detention Center can’t facilitate Mayweather’s isolation other than solitary confinement they should transfer him to a facility which can. After all, the bird man of Alcatraz was isolated from the general population and was not put in the solitary confinement.

    Johnson also says that he has been informed that inmates have died while in solitary confinement because of the conditions.
