Judge Melissa Saragosa in Las Vegas has denied Floyd Mayweather's appeal for an early release, with the rest of his sentence requested to be served under house arrest. KLAS-TV has the report:

Judge Melissa Saragosa denied Mayweather's request late Wednesday.

Mayweather claimed he was underfed and also unable to train. The judge denied his request, saying chose not to eat the food available and that he could train in his cell.

Well, that's that, then. So much for Floyd getting out in under two weeks of the 87-day sentence he's supposed to be serving.

TMZ has this from Judge Saragosa:

[T]he judge called B.S. on Mayweather's claim that he's dehydrated behind bars -- saying the boxer's condition is "self-induced as water is made available to [Floyd] twenty-four hours a day."

As for Floyd's gripe that he's only consuming a fraction of the calories he needs -- the judge says it's because "[Floyd] chooses not to eat the food provided." ... "While the training areas and times provided to Floyd may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses."

The appeal was filed because of claims that Mayweather is living on 800 calories a day and that his health is deteriorating, which threatens his boxing career. Mayweather is known as a fanatic for training, a guy who never gets out of shape (even during his "retirements"), and there's no doubt this is hard on him. But what he's been told here is, basically, "Tough. Jail's hard."

Mayweather is also said to be suffering from anger and depression issues. It's still expected as of now that he'll receive an early release from the Clark County Detention Center, but it's not coming this early.
