By James Slater: Ever fancied writing a letter to boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Junior but felt as though the Pound-for-Pound king would not find the time to read it? Well, now may be the best time to send Floyd a message and be assured that “Money” will actually take the time to read it.

With the 35-year-old currently incarcerated in a Las Vegas prison, the boxing master is sure to have plenty of spare, idle time on his hands. His fiancé, sensing this, took it upon herself to Tweet out Floyd’s prison ID, and Shantel Jackson, AKA Miss Jackson, has urged fans to write to Mayweather. Jackson requested “Positive letters please.”
The address, as has been reported by Black Sports online, is as follows:
ID# 01363917, Clark County Detention Centre, 330 S Casino Centre Blvd, Las Vegas NV 89101.
Whether or not Floyd will be permitted to reply to your message, I don’t know, but if you’re a Mayweather fan, why not write to him? I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if, in a month or so, it is reported that Mayweather has received a record number of letters and messages. I won’t be surprised, either, if some fight fans choose to ignore the “positive letters please” request and send in a ton of hate mail.
No fighter has inspired as much controversy, excitement, debate, love, hate, anger, passion, and just sheer interest as Floyd has. Not in recent years, anyway.
I wonder if Manny Pacquiao will take the time to write to Mayweather Junior!
