By Rick Reeno

Since the May 5th twelve round decision victory over Miguel Cotto, WBA junior middleweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs) has been keeping a low profile when it comes to disclosing information regarding his next appearance in the ring.

Mayweather is rumored to be returning in the first half of 2013. Richard Schaefer, CEO for Golden Boy Promotions, works closely with Mayweather and his team.

Golden Boy and Team Mayweather have discussed some possibilities - but Schaefer, like Mayweather, is keeping a tight lid on the possible scenarios.

"Floyd and his entire team...I'm friends with them. So of course we talk, but am I going to disclose what our talks are about..no. The only guy who is going to disclose what he's going to do is guess who? Floyd Mayweather. He is his own boss and he's going to say where, when and who. Now, do I have an idea [on what he plans to do next] - yeah I have an idea - but I am not going to talk about it," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com.

K9 Bundradge a Good Fit For Golden Boy

IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage (32-4, 19KOs) announced on Tuesday that he signed a multi-fight promotional agreement with Golden Boy.

Golden Boy has a deep stable of junior middleweights - including WBC champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, Erislandy Lara, Alfredo Angulo, James Kirkland, Keith Thurman, and they work closely with Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto. Bundrage told Golden Boy that he is willing to fight anybody.

"If you look at 140, 147 and 154 - we have a very deep stable already. K9 Bundrage is another guy who has the power and can change a fight with one punch. And he is [part of] an exciting weight class and a lot of potential matchups are there for him. He is a name that a lot of fights fans know," Schaefer said..

"He was here in the office, with his wife and he came out here with his kids as well. We had a great meeting and immediately connected. I like those kind of guys because they fight anybody."

Kirkland Situation Could Get Interesting

Speaking of Kirkland, the circumstances which influenced the boxer to file a lawsuit to break his agreements with Golden Boy, trainer Ann Wolfe, and co-managers Cameron Dunkin and Michael Miller - is starting to unravel.

Earlier this year, Kirkland was being positioned to fight Canelo Alvarez. He accepted the fight, but then withdrew less than 24 hours later with an injury claim. However, a day later Kirkland was playing down his injury and asking for a lot more money to move forward with the fight. Shortly thereafter the boxer was pursuing a legal action against the above referenced parties.

"We'll see what's going to happen in the end. At least found out now who it was that interfered. We are going to deal with that the proper way. Other than that I am not going to discuss it any further. I always felt that James and me got along very well, so we'll see what the future holds," Schaefer said.
