News archive about the match below:
The fight between Mayweather and Marquez that is set this July was postponed due to the rib injury acquired by Mayweather during his training. No schedule was announced for the said future match.
After the stunning victory of Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao against Ricky “Hitman” Hatton last May 2 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas (read the story here: Pacquiao vs Hatton), the retired undisputed and undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced his come back in the world of boxing and tries to claim his crown as the king of the ring. Mayweather will start his come back by an opening fight on July 18 against the mexican Juan Manuel Marquez at MGM Grand in Las Vegas where they will be fighting on 143 or 144 pounds weight category.
The same bragging mouth of the last Mayweather is still dominating in his every interview today and he is not really convinced that Pacquiao is the best fighter of all time. He claims that he have never been lost ever and the fighter that can produce millions in every fight. This fight between them will be the trigerring device for the coming future Pacquiao vs Mayweather match, if ever he wins this July fight against the Juan Manuel Marquez which is also aiming to fight again Pacquiao.
