On Wednesday, the former champ was sentenced for violating probation on felony drug charges. As part of the punishment – between his nine-day jail sentence and six months of intensive rehab at a southern New Mexico facility – Tapia will appear on VH1’s reality show, “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.” Tapia has no problem with the sentence, telling media, “They’re taking me to prison. I did the crime, I’ll do the time.” Tapia had been facing up to a year in jail for violating his probation. In the meantime, Tapia is in training for a May 16 comeback, most likely to take place in New Mexico.
