Mayweather looks to upstage Pac on March 13th

leave a comment »

Not to be outdone, Floyd Mayweather will do battle with Manny Pacquiao on March 13th but not in the ring rather in terms of views as he will go ahead with a fight on March 13th.

The date was meant to see Mayweather take on Pacquiao but after the two side failed to reach an agreement over the method of drugs testing, Pacquiao will now take on Joshua Clottey. This leaves Mayweather with a very tricky situation as he will need to find a suitable opponent for the March 13th date if he is to go ahead with his plans.

Jr welterweights Paulie Malignaggi and Nate Campbell have been touted as possible opponents whilst welterweights Kermit Cintron and Matthew Hatton, brother of Ricky, have also been mentioned.

Timothy Bradley, a title holder at 140 pounds has a long shot at being selected but with his association with Showtime, HBO’s rival network, it is quite unlikely.

Whoever is selected, the fight will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and it is being mentioned that if Mayweather comes through the bout unscathed he could face the winner of Berto/Mosley later this year.
