Floyd Mayweather Jr. eyes May 5 f!ght
By Dan Rafael
ESPN.com

Floyd Mayweather Jr. does not plan on taking another 16-month vacation from the boxing ring, like he did after easily outpointing Shane Mosley in May 2010.

Instead, Mayweather, who knocked out Victor Ortiz on Sept. 17, will make a relatively hasty return: May 5 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, adviser Leonard Ellerbe told ESPN.com on Wednesday night.

Mayweather's opponent has not been determined but Ellerbe said, "We're looking to make the biggest f!ght possible and everyone knows what that f!ght is, the little fella."

Ellerbe was, of course, referring to Manny Pacquiao. The welterweight champions and the top two pound-for-pound f!ghters in the world have been on a collision course for years. However, negotiations have fallen apart over drug testing protocol.


Pacquiao f!ghts Juan Manuel Marquez for the third time on Nov. 12 at the MGM Grand and is a heavy favorite.

"Floyd made it very clear that he wants to give the fans the biggest f!ghts that are out there. He wants to stay active," Ellerbe said. "We're going to do everything in our power to make the biggest f!ght out there for the fans and we all know what the f!ght is."

Mayweather, a five-division champion, has fought only five times since 2007.

Ellerbe said Mayweather informed him and fellow adviser Al Haymon on Wednesday of his decision to return in May.

"We had a discussion, Floyd, me and Al," Ellerbe said. "Floyd made it very clear to us what he wanted to do. He told us he is looking to make the biggest f!ght that is out there and to make it in May."


Ellerbe also informed Golden Boy promoter Richard Schaefer, who does not have a contract with Mayweather but has promoted his last five bouts, of the plan.

"I'm very excited that the sport's biggest pay-per-view star is going to be back on May 5," Schaefer told ESPN.com. "We have informed the pay-per-view industry and I have the arena on hold. I'm excited to continue my relationship with Floyd and his team. It's always fun to work with Floyd."

Although May 5 is seven months away, Mayweather's f!ghts have typically been promoted for several months in advance of the f!ght. The first weekend of May is traditionally a weekend for a major pay-per-view f!ght.

"We have to plan any time you're the biggest star in the sport," Ellerbe said. "You have to plan in advance because his f!ghts are events. In order to maximize the exposure you want to plan as far in advance as you can to make your event as big as possible. May 5, that is the date Floyd is f!ghting on. We have secured May 5 at the MGM. Floyd is excited to make his return."

Mayweather (42-0, 26 KOs), who turns 35 in February, reclaimed one of his old welterweight titles with his knockout of Ortiz in a f!ght that Golden Boy said generated 1.25 million buys and $78.44 million in domestic pay-per-view revenue. The buys tied the f!ght for third place all-time among non-heavyweight pay-per-views and gave Mayweather his third consecutive 1 million-plus pay-per-view f!ght and fourth in his last five bouts.

Although Mayweather plans to f!ght, he still faces several legal cases. He was acquitted last week of misdemeanor harassment charges alleging that he had threatened the lives of two security guards in the gated community in Las Vegas where he lives. But he faces a Nov. 4 trial for a misdemeanor battery complaint alleging he poked another homeowner a.ssociation security guard in the face during a different confrontation over parking tickets in November. Mayweather has pleaded not guilty.

In the most serious case, Mayweather faces four felony and four misdemeanor charges stemming from an alleged domestic dispute with his former girlfriend, who is the mother of two of his children.

“@stevemaxboxing: We interviewed FRoach (Freddie Roach) today, he stated clearly that they would take the test to make the May f!ght. Take that for what it's worth #boxing”

An early May f!ght is only reserved for a "super" PPV. Arum's comments were just the beginning of the hype and hysteria that is going to surround this f!ght.

There have been rumblings in the industry for a couple weeks now that Mayweather was going to f!ght the Pacman in early May. Everything was done behind closed doors this time so the negotiations wouldn't go public and be reported by the media at each and every turn.

Both f!ghters are not going to let anything get in their way of taking in the biggest payout in boxing history.

What would give you the impression that I'm upset?

Just calling out an obsessive-compulsive groupie when I see one.

It's flattering that you pay so much attention to my posts and are able to recall them, because I have no idea who you are.
