LAS VEGAS- A judge in Las Vegas postponed until June 1 the start of boxing star Floyd Mayweather's 90-day jail term on a domestic violence conviction.

Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa granted the request from Mayweather's defense attorney, allowing the undefeated welterweight champion to go ahead with his plan to fight in Las Vegas on May 5.

Saragosa sentenced the 34-year-old Mayweather to three months in jail in late December.

The prosecution argued Mayweather should have to begin his jail term Friday at the Clark County Detention Center, as laid out in Mayweather's plea agreement.
