Mayweather vs Ortiz on Cowboys Stadium

Mayweather vs Ortiz
It remains the most important fight that can be made in boxing today: Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KO’s) against Floyd Mayweather (41-0-0, 25 KO’s) Junior. Almost immediately after the disappointing but lopsided points win he’d scored over a reluctant “Sugar” Shane Mosley last night, Pound-for-Pound king Pac-Man was asked if he will fight “Money” next. As usual, the 32-year-old megastar uttered his “I’ll fight whoever Bob Arum puts in front of me,” Neither ruling out nor confirming a fight with the legally-troubled Mayweather.

Mayweather vs Ortiz?

Well I think this is the best fight possibly I've ever seen very much for 2011. Both showed amazing heart and guts and proves that when u get 2 young hungry talented guys at the top of their game you get incomparable sports viewing. This type of boxing beats the pants off any other sport in the world. On a side note. I noticed Mayweather n fiddy at the fight ringside. 2 things crossed my mind.

1) Mayweather has been linked to fighting berto before potentially, and also ortiz is an agressive fast southpaw...the perfect tune up for you know who. So I reckon he was on a bit of a scouting mission last night.

Floyd Mayweather vs Victor Ortiz Rumor

Mayweather vs Ortiz
According to an insider and Boxrec it appears that Victor Ortiz and Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be squaring off on September 16th at a yet to be named location. If indeed this match comes to fruition it would revive Mayweather’s career at the very moment that the press and the fans are about to write off Mr. Money. This fight would be the most relevant welterweight Matchup since Margarito vs Cotto. According to an anonymous insider connected with Golden Boy Promotions

Mayweather Versus Ortiz Fight on September 17

Mayweather vs Ortiz
Undefeated Floyd Mayweather, Jr. (40-0-0) is scheduled to fight newly crowned World Boxing Council Welterweight champion Victor Ortiz (29-2-2) on September 17, at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas. No official press conference is called yet, as of this writing, by Golden Boy Promotions (GBP), who promotes the Mexican-American fighter, and the camp of Mayweather, Jr. whose promotional campaign spins under his own company, Mayweather Promotions, Inc.

GBP officials, who offered a few details on condition of anonymity, said they will divulge the specifics of the fight and will call for press conference shortly but have declined to confirm its certainty. Mayweather, Jr. last fought against Sugar Shane Mosley on May 1 of last year and earned a unanimous decision. He was reported to have entertained a plan to set up himself a match with an unknown opponent and have it staged in Africa. But, the same was aborted according to inside report.

As of this writing, it's unclear still if Mayweather, Jr. really wants to fight world's No. 1 boxer today, Manny Pacquiao. The defamation lawsuit filed by Pacquiao against Mayweather, Jr. on the issue of the latter's public declaration alleging the former of a potential use of performance enhancing drugs may have just deter both fighters in making the most anticipated fight between the two to happen in the near future.

Pacquiao, for his part, said he is contented about his successful boxing career saying "It's okay for me if he does not want to fight. I have accomplished enough. But, the boxing fans want that fight to happen."
