Tapia released from jail

Former champ faces one-year sentence but is planning comeback: Five-time world champion Johnny Tapia has been released from jail pending a court decision on Monday. Yesterday, Tapia was in court but was able to avoid a possible one-year jail sentence under the habitual offender law, at least until Monday. Last month, Tapia violated probation for a cocaine arrest last year after nearly dying from an overdose. Tapia’s legal team is asking for Judge Kenneth Martinez to send Tapia to a drug treatment center in southern New Mexico. In the meantime, Tapia says he is coming out of retirement and, today, signed a contract for two more fights. — Chris Cozzone
