Mayweather got quite a good deal

Regarding the story “Judge delays Mayweather’s jail sentence until after fight”:

What criteria — income level, profession, scope of a proposed special event — qualifies boxer Floyd Mayweather special consideration for delayed incarceration? Apparently, the “reasoning” for this decision from the bench — the latest legal precedent for delaying justice in Nevada — has been explained by two individuals. Mayweather’s lawyer stated “that said the 90-day sentence would hurt his training schedule for the fight.” The other, a local marketing officer, pointed to the mere possibility of a boxing match on Cinco de Mayo.

Now it’s clear.

But what if Mayweather fails to fulfill his domestic crisis counseling by next year, thus nullifying the suspended 90-day portion of the sentence? Will he have that sentence postponed as well over the possibility of a hypothetical boxing match on Cinco de Mayo?

Uhh … never mind. Asked and answered.
