Mayweather vs Spadafora: The Pittsburgh Kid is Ready

By Rick Reeno

Michael Acri, promoter of unbeaten junior welterweight/welterweight contender Paul "Pittsburgh Kid" Spadafora (45-0, 19KOs), spoke to BoxingScene.com regarding the industry rumors that his fighter is in line for a possible summer showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (41-0, 25KOs). According to Acri, there have been a few discussions for a potential Mayweather-Spadafora clash in the month of July. 

Acri was approached by promoter Don King, and a few others who are connected to Mayweather. The history between Mayweather and Spadafora dates back to ten years ago, when they clashed in a Las Vegas gym. The infamous sparring session was captured on video and widely circulated all over the internet. Spadafora got the better of Mayweather in their gym collision. Floyd has always maintained that he wasn't in shape when the sparring session took place, while Spadafora was actively training for a scheduled fight.  

"I was approached about the fight. I spoke with Don and a few other people [connected to Mayweather]. Paul is interested in the fight. He's wanted this fight for a very long time. Paul is ready to finish what he started ten years ago. We'll see what happens," Acri told BoxingScene.com.

Mayweather has yet to overcome several pending legal matters in the city of Las Vegas. Any potential fight, Spadafora or otherwise, is resting on the outcome of Mayweather's courtroom drama.
