Mayweather sets September return date

It has only been around two weeks since Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Marcos Maidana and unified the Welterweight titles after securing a unanimous decision victory and now, the undefeated American has already set a date for his next fight.

Mayweather Jr. will take to the ring once again on the 13th of September, with the opponent to be decided later.

According to an executive of Mayweather Promotions, Floyd will step inside the ring once again on the 13th of September and they are still in the process of finalizing who his opponent is going to be. He also added that Las Vegas is the home of the American and the MGM Grand Garden Arena is always his preferred venue for the fight but there are other venues under consideration as well.

The pay per view event comes as a part of Floyd’s six fight deal with the Showtime/CBS deal which is reportedly worth $ 200 million and this fight will be the fourth one of that deal.

Mayweather Jr. defeated the Argentina Maidana on points in what was arguably one of the toughest fights he has had in his career at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, where he fought for the ninth straight time but according to sources close to him, he is considering an offer to fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

According to a source close to the American, the opponent will also be finalized within the next two weeks and the undefeated boxer will make an announcement regarding the fight after that.

However, a September date means British boxer Amir Khan has been ruled out of the fight due to religious reasons and according to an executive of Mayweather’s promotion, if Khan wants to fight the American, it will have to be in September.
