Floyd Mayweather Jr. To Return To Boxing

Professional boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. is finally ready to take a break from “blowing money fast” and finding out “What Chili Wants” to return to the boxing ring.

On Tuesday, Mayweather announced on Twitter that he will fight Victor Ortiz on September 17th for the WBC World Championship.

Mayweather has been absent from boxing for 16-month, since defeating Shane Mosley in May of 2010.

Details and location of the Mayweather vs. Ortiz fight were not released, but MGM Grand in Las Vegas is believed to be the frontrunner to host the bout.

Mayweather’s fight in September will finally bring boxing fans a step closer to the fight everyone has been waiting to see: Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.

“That’s good,” WBO Welterweight World Champion Manny Pacquiao told Manilla Bulletin upon hearing of Mayweather’s upcoming fight. “Ortiz is a southpaw like me so I think Mayweather is preparing (for a fight against me).”

“If he gets past Ortiz (then we can fight),” Pacquiao said.

The whole world is waiting on the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight! It’s been soo close to happening but never came to light, hopelfully it will very soon.
