MGM Grand, Las Vegas - WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs) gave no indication on when he plans to return to the ring. After a 16-month layoff, Mayweather returned on Saturday night to score a knock out of Victor Ortiz (29-3-2, 22KOs) in four rounds. Will he return in the near future? Will he take another 16 months off? Mayweather's return will be decided by Mayweather, and not HBO or Golden Boy Promotions.

"Like I've said before, there is a boss at the company that tells [Manny] Pacquiao and all of these other fighters - 'this is your date, this is when you have to fight.' I move when I want to move. I fight when I want to fight. That's the great thing about being my own boss. That's the great thing about my career. That's the great thing about getting away from Bob Arum. I can move when I want to move. Since I gave the sport so many great fights, is it okay for me to take 16 months off to spend time with family? That's all I ask," Mayweather told

"I'll go home, sit down with my team and see where we go from here. I'll sit down with Al [Haymon], sit down with Roger [Mayweather], sit down with Leonard [Ellerbe] and we'll see what the next. I'm not thinking about retiring right now, but I'm thinking about training fighters."

[QUOTE=vinny2006]Floyd has 16 years boxing, but actually it is only 10 to 12 years, since he takes off 1 to 2 years to avoid other fighters so that they can get losses on their records from other committed fighters. To be considered great, Floyd has to make the 50+ fight club, fighters like Roy, ...

[QUOTE=mathed]Floyd makes fights happen with ease...the only fight he ever had trouble making was the Pac one. Now that Pac said yes to the testing, Floyd needs another excuse or he rematches Ortiz, then retires. He will never fight Pac because that is the one fight he can't win.[/QUOTE] :non...

It would be nice if he said: "well ima wait for the pacquiao-marquez fight if pacquiao win`s ima try to get the fight with him. If he wants to take the test and the money is right ill do that,if negociations cant get done ima look for someone else",s.h.i.t. Like that you know.
