Floyd Mayweather: I'll Announce My Next Fight Very Soon

By Mark Vester, photos by

According to Robin Leach, an English celebrity who became famous for hosting the television program 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,' Floyd Mayweather Jr. plans to announce his next fight in the near future. Over the weekend, Mayweather and Leach spent some time together at the Del Mar Racetrack just north of San Diego in Del Mar.

In Leach's latest column, which is syndicated on several websites, he wrote that Mayweather told him that an announcement would made very soon. In addition to that, Mayweather told Leach the fight would take place in Dubai, but that is probably a swerve.

“We’ll announce it all very soon,” [Mayweather] told me. “But this time it won’t be in Vegas. It will be in another desert kingdom: Dubai.”
