Mayweather Announces Return vs Ortiz on Sept 17 Fight

Mayweather vs Ortiz
Undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather announced that his long-awaited return to the ring will take place on September 17 when he faces WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz. Mayweather made the announcement official to more than 1.25 million followers of his official Twitter account. 'My fans have been waiting long enough. Floyd Mayweather vs Victor Ortiz. Sept-17 2011 for the WBC World Championship,' Mayweather would tweet shortly after Noon ET after giving fans a tip to check his page at that time in an exclusive FightHype.com
interview. Mayweather vs Ortiz is definitely being discussed for September 17 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and everything is all but finalized. The info was shared to me under the condition of complete anonymity. According to my source, it is a done deal and the fight should be announced some time this week in a press conference. Rumors about the fight surfaced a month ago, after Mayweather expressed interest in fighting Ortiz after witnessing his win over Andre Berto ringside at the Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut, last April
