Former NFL wide receiver David Boston on Friday was ordered to serve a six-month jail sentence for an aggravated battery conviction.

Circuit Judge Charles Burton ordered the sentence, likening Boston’s “violent act” to "Mike Tyson hitting you," the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Boston, 34, last month pleaded guilty to the felony charge that resulted from a Nov. 30, 2011, incident involving a female friend at a home in Boca Raton.
