Mayfield: Mayweather-Berto Not Done, I'm Still Possible

By Edward Chaykovsky

Last month, WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26KOs) named Karim Mayfield and Andre Berto as potential opponents for his scheduled return on September 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

After disclosing those two names, very few people took Mayweather seriously. But now it appears that Mayweather may have been serious after all, with Berto being widely reported as the opponent of choice for Mayweather's debut on network television, with the fight taking place on CBS.

Mayfield believes he still has a chance to land the fight, because no deal has been finalized for Mayweather-Berto.

"Yeah it’s still feasible. The media has been putting out there that Andre Berto has the fight but that’s not actually all the way official yet. The man himself hasn’t agreed to take the fight, but just as the media throws out different things here and there, it’s just speculation at this point until the man says it’s a go. It’s definitely a possibility that my name is still in the running," Mayfield told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

Mayfield feels his fighting style would produce a lot more fireworks than someone like Berto or even Amir Khan.

"Well, if you were comparing it on rankings or mandatories, I guess none of us would be an actual mandatory fight for him. None of us are the number one mandatory fighter. To answer your question, for one, my style would bring a way better fight than either one of these guys’ styles," Mayfield said.

"No disrespect to any of those guys but styles do make fights, and I know my style is conducive to Floyd Mayweather’s style. And also due to the fact that I am a come forward guy, I’m not there to play chess, you can’t play chess with a chess master. I think I’d certainly make a more explosive fight."
