Five-division champion boxer Floyd Mayweather was released from the Clark County Detention Center just after midnight on Friday morning, ending his two-month jail stint for domestic violence charges (per USNews.com).

Mayweather was sentenced to 90 days in jail, but he was granted an early release for good behavior and work credit while incarcerated.

Chris Maathuis of CBS Eyewitness news in Las Vegas tweeted:

@floydmayweather is a free man. Just released from CC detention center. What's next for the Money Team? November fight? Let's hope.

After an unsuccessful attempt to get out of jail back in June (per ESPN), Mayweather has not been heard from since.

All attention will now be turned to what Mayweather will do next in the ring, as he had said that the solitary confinement paired with the lack of caloric intake while he was jail led to him losing muscle tone.

In his complaint to the judge back in June, Mayweather said he was eating only 800 calories a day, as opposed to his typical 3,000-4,000 calories.

If Mayweather has indeed slipped out of boxing shape, he will need some time to get his body and mind back into boxing shape, making a possible return to the ring for Mayweather not likely until the end of 2012 or early 2013.
