LAS VEGAS (RNN) – A motion to allow boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. to finish a three-month jail sentence on house arrest was denied Wednesday.

Mayweather will remain in the Clark County Detention Center to finish his sentence for misdemeanor domestic battery, according to KVVU. His attorneys' motion to move him followed complaints of dehydration and declining physical condition from the boxer.

The court's ruling stated the issues were outside of its jurisdiction. It reads in part:

The court finds the alleged dehydration of the defendant to be self-induced, as water is made available to him 24 hours a day. The court further finds the estimated intake of only 800 calories per day is also self-inflicted, as defendant chooses not to eat the food provided.

Finally, the court finds that while the physical training areas and times provided to defendant may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses.

Attorneys for Mayweather argued the boxer's stay in jail could threaten his career.

The undefeated, eight-time world champion has served 15 days of his sentence. Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa had originally planned to rule Thursday on the motion Mayweather's attorneys filed.

In a hearing Tuesday, defense attorney Richard Wright said Mayweather has been kept in isolation 23 hours a day because of his celebrity status, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Wright said inhumane conditions have caused the fighter's physical deterioration.

The prosecutor argued his health was a result of his refusal to eat the food served to him.

The motion states the boxer planned on fighting for two more years, but his stay in jail could keep him from doing that, according to his personal doctor.

Mayweather reported to jail June 1 after pleading guilty to striking his ex-girlfriend in front of their children in September 2010. The judge pushed back his sentencing date so he could keep his scheduled fight with Miguel Cotto on May 5, which he won by decision.

Mayweather has been rated the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world, and has remained the sport's most bankable star. He had a guaranteed $32 million purse for the Cotto match.
