Mayweather To Defend 147 and 154 Titles in One Night?

By Salvador Rodriguez

The latest word, according to World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman, is that Floyd Mayweather Jr. will possibly emulate the past accomplishment of Sugar Ray Leonard by taking part in a bout where titles from two separate divisions are at stake.

Mayweather holds the WBC/WBA world titles at welterweight and junior middleweight. In November of 1988, Leonard fought Donny Lalonde in a bout where the WBC super middleweight and light heavyweight belts were up for grabs. Mayweather has a return date of September 13th.

"The last news that I have is that Mayweather wants to defend his two [WBC] titles in one night. If this is confirmed as an official request it will be addressed immediately. Sugar Ray Leonard did it against Donny Lalonde and before that Henry Armstrong was the only one who had that history of defending multiple titles in different divisions. We'll wait until an official request arrives and then we'll see," Sulaiman said.

Don't want to see a Cotto rematch, I want to see the rematch with Maidana. The fight with Cotto wasn't close and Maidana did enough to make a second fight interesting.

I think it will be Cotto for the 154 lb and 160 lb titles. It's already a big fight and even bigger with titles involved.

[QUOTE=Golovkin;14653339]If he was man enough, he'd put both at stake against Cotto (at 160) for September showdown. But Floyd stay ducking the rematch hard.[/QUOTE] How the fuuck do you duck a rematch? LOL! Insanity has reached a new level on…

I guess it's not a bad idea if they have the right opponent and the only one who could qualify is Lara if he beats Canelo. I think that he is a small enough JMW that Floyd can fight him…
