Floyd Mayweather's right hand man Leonard Ellerbe told ESPN.com that Money May plans to have two fights in 2013. Once on Cinco de Mayo (May 4) and then again on Sept. 14.
"Mayweather Promotions is looking forward to these two gigantic Floyd Mayweather events in 2013, and we are in ongoing discussions with our promotional partner, Richard Schaefer (chief executive of Golden Boy Promotions) in finalizing the opponent and other aspects of the upcoming promotion."
Both fights will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Right now he'll be able to choose from three fighters. Canelo Alvarez, Robert Guerrero and, of course, Manny Pacquiao. Alvarez was hoping to fight Miguel Cotto in his next bout, but the Puerto Rican boxer lost a stunner to Austin Trout Saturday night and Golden Boy is said to be planning a May 4 Canelo fight. Guerrero is Mayweather's mandatory challenger and has been calling him out, but his name isn't big enough. That leaves us with Pacman. They haven't fought yet because they can't agree to terms. Although, Manny has recently stated that he's willing to take 45% of the purse and will agree to random drug testing leading up to the fight. Manny is set to fight Juan Manuel Marquez for the fourth time this Saturday on HBO Pay-Per-View.
In November, Roger Mayweather (Money's trainer) told On the Ropes Radio that his nephew will go down as a "scared motherfucking champion" if he doesn't fight Manny.
Let's see what happens.
