FLOYD MAYWEATHER VS JOHN GOTTI III REMATCH SET FOR MEXICO SHOWDOWN

Sources close to the information have informed us that Hall of Fame legend Floyd Mayweather will be making his return to the ring for an exhibition rematch with John Gotti III. Although an official date and venue has yet to be finalized, we're told that the event will likely take place in Mexico late this summer, tentatively scheduled for August 24.

Originally, Mayweather was expecting to face former opponent Victor Ortiz as the main event of a card he planned on titling "Protect Yourself At All Times". However, those plans changed because the manager/advisor of Victor Ortiz also works with John Gotti III, and they felt he should be first in line for the exhibition rematch. So instead, Victor Ortiz will now appear on the undercard as the co-main event.

We're told Mayweather, who's already pocketing a quick $1 million just for a day's worth of promomting the event, will earn another 8-figure payday when he steps back into the ring. Be sure to check back soon for more details.
