The case stems from a hair-pulling, arm-twisting attack on the mother of three of his children in September 2010.

Mayweather pleaded guilty last December to reduced charges in the altercation with Josie Harris while their two sons watched.

In January, Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa agreed to let the fighter remain free long enough to fight Miguel Cotto on May 5 at the MGM Grand hotel. Mayweather won the bout.
