Mayweather: If The Price is Right, Maybe I'll Go For 50

WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather is excited about his rematch with Marcos Maidana on September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The bout will be Mayweather's fourth of a six-fight contract with New York-based Showtime Networks Inc. If he wins all three of the remaining fights it would leave him with 49 wins, one shy of going 50-0.

"If the price is right and I want to go for number 50, then it is possible," he said. "One of my ultimate goals is to fight in New York."

A disagreement arose on the eve of their fight on May 3 when Mayweather objected to the 227-gram gloves that Maidana wanted to use, saying they didn't have enough padding.

"This is not a street fight; this is not an MMA fight," Mayweather said. "My health and my career after boxing is what's important. I could hit this guy without gloves and he could never walk again. We use gloves to protect ourselves."

The man nicknamed "Money" won their first bout on a majority decision, one of the judges scoring it 114-114.

This is why I don't respect Mayweather.... "I will break Marciano ATG record only for money, not to cement my legacy" I hope he retires soon and real fighter takes over boxing.
