WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs) once again stated that he plans to fight on September 14th. When Mayweather was asked "if you fight in September" - Mayweather replied - "I am fighting in September."

Top Rank has already booked Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Timothy Bradley on September 14th, at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Golden Boy Promotions reserved the same date for Mayweather, but at the MGM Grand. Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum has already indicated that he doesn't believe Mayweather will fight on the date. Arum does have an alternate date for Marquez-Bradley - but he will only move the Marquez-Bradley event if Mayweather moves forward on the September date. 

This Saturday night at the MGM Grand, Mayweather will face mandatory challenger Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (31-1-1, 18KOs) in the headliner of a Showtime pay-per-view event.

Mayweather was clueless regarding a recent press release which detailed the possibility of an overseas fight in the UK within the next 18 months - and the press release also listed British superstar Amir Khan as a possible opponent.

"My main focus right now is Robert. If I paid attention [to every fighter calling me out]. It's like I was telling Kevin [Iole], everybody wants to fight me. I just want to focus [on Robert] and take it one fight at a time. If that fight [with Khan] presents itself in the future, that will happen. Right now I just want to focus on the guy in front of me. I didn't say that [a fight with Khan was a possibility]. The last time I faced a guy from [the UK] he was undefeated and we took him to the doghouse and you saw what happened. Don't rush [Khan]. I told [Khan] before too.....'just take your time...if you get here you will get here.' Right now my focus is the guy right in front of me. After that I don't know what's next. We try to take it one fight at a time," Mayweather said.

This will get very intresting because Canelo will be fighting on sept 14th. so what do they do?? Unless Mayweather is fighting Canelo there probably gonna have to do a spilt feed like a couple of years ago. Canelo might just get upset and call out Mayweather, if he does that after the fight on sa...

[QUOTE=DadeCounty305]Fraud said PLENTY of times he doesn't fight for belts anymore. I don't give a d@mn about Manny getting KO'd by JMM. We ALL know the Bradley fight was 100% total bs.
