He just posted it on his Facebook page saying him fighting Roberto is just a rumor....thank god, I have been waiting for some words from him for the longest! I am never paying any attention to who is he going to fight unless he himself announces it.

However I believe we will know the name soon as January closes down and if he is to fight on May 4th, his training camp and promotion should commence at the end of February or maybe even sooner. I think I'll be as surprised as when he announced hes fighting Ortiz. Didn't see that one coming!

Can you think of any other unlikely names that could end up in the mix?

What if Brook DESTROYS Alexander next month, creates a big buzz, and lands either a Khan, Lopez, or a Bradley fight before or around September? Could you see a Mayweather fight in December, possibly?

Some of you guys are holding on to this September 14th date, JUST because Floyd "said" that he was gonna fight on that date. Hasn't he lied or changed his mind before? Didn't he say that he was gonna try to fight twice in 2012?

Problem is, May 4th hasn't come and gone yet. What if he has a tough fight in May, and decides to take a vacation, or wait til the end of the year to fight? Then what?

Everybody has in their mind that Floyd is gonna have to fight a Mexican in May or September...c'mon now. Truthfully, he can fight ANY month of the year, and do decent numbers. What if Canelo loses in May, then what?

Brook DESTROYING Alexander? Really?...
I doubt it. Brook doesn't have a big US fanbase, and i dont think beating Alexander ( IF he beats alexander which i can't see happening) will do much for him besides making him a world champion. May 4, Floyd wouldve had a year gap (including a two month incarceration) since he last fought. I doubt he will have a 2 month training camp. If anything I'd expect him to train 3 months. I already seen a recent picture of him in the gym wearing training equipment with Ishe Smith. Also he has trained in Miami with J'leon love recently. IF brook were to fight loyd, it would have to be in may.

Honestly, what welterweight will give Floyd a tough fight?...Floyd would thoroughly make any fight at welter an EASY pretty fight.

I think it will be Canelo in september. It just makes so much sense. Its mexican independence day, Canelo-Mayweather is the highest grossing fight waiting to happen in boxing right now. He's a GB fighter. He's a WBC titlist. And Canelo/Trout are most likely Fighting May 4. And ok Mayweather can fight any time of the year but lets be logical, May and September are his signature times. The last time he fought on another month was against hatton 6 years ago. And he SAID himself hes returning in may then september. Mayweather's not looking to do decent numbers. He's looking to break records and raise his stock as much as possible before retirement. We're looking way to deep into this. I ASKED SAM WATSON MYSELF at the weighin of Cotto-Trout and he told me Mayweather will fight Canelo the end of next year. Now why would floyd fight in the fourth quarter of next year against a mexican (considering canelo wins) on any month BESIDES september?
http://www.fighthype.com/news/external/ind...yweather--61745

Canelo is going on Floyds undercard for a FACT because he helps Floyd's PPV numbers, and it just builds the suspense for their fight. I mean Canelo's been figthing on Mayweather cards for 3 years now, and at this point he doesnt even have to, nor does he want to. If Trout doesnt get the W over canelo (WHICH I THINK HE WILL AND FUCK ALL OF GBP PLANS UP) we WILL see mayweather Canelo in september. And look at it this way, floyd is taking a tuneup bout at welterweight. Perhaps he's not figthing at JMW because hes trying his best to preserve/test his body at 147 until September when he in fact DOES fight a JMW.

Now If Canelo loses to Trout in may (Which i think he will)? Thats a GREAT QUESTION. Canelo is fishing for Trout, Trout wants to show how seasoned he is against canelo (Corny but i tried lol). De La Hoya and Schafer are SCARED. They're SHAKING IN THEIR BOOTS. Trout is a Haymon fighter so he definitely has big things in store for him. And he practically has HBO on his side being with Haymon. But it looks like this is a risk GBP is going to have to take. Unless they put Canelo against Cotto which would be a bitchass move. That would be FOUL, but thats boxing... But if Canelo indeed loses in May (against trout IF they do fight which i think they will) then Haymon will have to sacrifice a fighter.. and we will see the quality of Floyd's integrity depending on the decision he makes for september 14th..

THE REAL QUESITON IS WHO WILL FLOYD FIGHT ON MAY 4? Thats the mystery..
