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?

With all this speculation about who Mayweather will fight in May or September, lets look at history. When Margarito beat Cotto, he became the biggest name at 147. Margarito beat Cotto in 2008 and Williams destroyed Carlos Quintanna in their rematch in 2008. Mayweather was fresh off of the Hatton fight at 147 in late 2007. All 3 guys were kings at 147. Either guy would have been a huuuge fight for Mayweather. Both Williams and Margarito were in their prime and BIG welterweights. The money would have been there, no question... What did Mayweather do?? He retired... Only to come back when the field was again clear. Margarito had moved on and been beaten to a pulp by Mosley. Williams moved up to 154 and 160. Mayweather came back in 2009 when these guys were all gone and took on the best 135 pounder in the business because JMM had the nerve to call him out.

Here we are in 2013... Trout and Canelo are 2 BIG 154 pounders primed and ready to fight. Trout is coming off beating Cotto up. Guerrero who happens to be a guy who came from 135 calls Mayweather out and now we'll see what happens. 2013 is eerily similar to 2008. Maybe he'll just announce his retirement from the sport.

That is an interesting theory. Before the Hatton fight he said he was going to take a break, that was when everyone was saying that he was afraid of facing Pacquiao. Margarito is a slow fighter and Paul Williams I don't think had a house hold name yet. After Mosley destroyed a loaded glove Margarito, Floyd came back and fought JMM and then put Shane into an early retirement. I don't understand why just because he hasn't fought everyone who called him out he is ducking or taking the easier route. When he called out Shane and Oscar early in his career people were not hearing. Keith "One Time" Thurman called Floyd out as well, if he doesn't fight him is he ducking Thurman? k9 Bunderage called out Floyd on numerous occasion if Floyd does not fight him is he ducking K9? And Floyd has fought big welter weights more dangerous than Margarito and Paul Williams. Oscar De La Hoya, Diego Corrales (RIP), Cotto, are the ones I can think of oh Shane is taller than he. I know Williams is 6'1 but the kid leaves himself far to open and takes too many hits. But it would had been an interesting fight no doubt. A damn interesting one. Mayweather can't fight everyone.

You do make good points.
