Schaefer: Khan, Ortiz, Garcia All Possible For Mayweather

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer broke down some of the many possibilities for WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs), who won a twelve round unanimous decision over Robert Guerrero on Saturday night.

Some of the options include Amir Khan - if he moved up to welterweight and won a world title. Or the returning Victor Ortiz, who Mayweather knocked out in 2011 - or even current WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, who is likely moving up to the welterweight division in the near future. And of course WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

"This is a well [stacked] division and we have some names moving up from 140 as well. Let's say Amir Khan, who was ringside, would move up on December 7th and fight the winner of Lee Purdy and Devon Alexander, and becomes the welterweight champion. I could see something like that. I could see. Danny Garcia, once he has cleaned up the junior welterweight division, he could be a name. We have Victor Ortiz, who is going to fight in September, he feels there is some unfinished business. There are a lot of possibilities," Schaefer said.

Canelo, Pac, or Martinez better be next...hell I'd rather see a Cotto rematch than all these cherry picked C class fighters

[QUOTE=Big_L;13330740]brook has ZERO name recognition in the U.S though. thats a tough sell.[/QUOTE] My thought-process was that Floyd would take the trip to England.

here's a possible scenario: floyd will have his easy fight sept against maidana or alexander or whoever. canelo/cotto on the card to help sell it and canelo will get guarantee for cinco de mayo next year.
