This was always the most serious of all of Mayweather’s legal woes.

If he is able to avoid jail time with this for the most part he will be clear and free of the law from the time being.  Here are the details.

Unbeaten boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. will reportedly accept a plea bargain to avoid a felony conviction for his alleged role in a 2010 domestic violence episode involving the mother of three of his children, and the children, the Las Vegas Review-Journal is reporting on its website Tuesday.

Efforts to reach Mayweather and his representatives were immediately unsuccessful Tuesday afternoon, but the report said Clark County (Nev.) District Attorney David Roger told the newspaper that the boxer on Wednesday morning will plead guilty to one count of battery domestic violence and two counts of harassment, all misdemeanors.

Mayweather, 34, is subject to $3,000 in fines and a jail sentence ranging from two days to 18 months, the newspaper reported.

There is no way Mayweather would take a plea that would put him in jail for 18 months, so expect the sentence to be light.

This could clear the way for a Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight since one of the million issues Pacquiao’s camp had was Mayweather’s availability.

With that being said I still won’t hold my breath.
