Floyd Mayweather posted that on his facebook and twitter. I dont really like this choice
I think he's BSing. Keep everyone expectations low so when he officially announces who, people will be shocked.

Broner vs Rees about to start , as big a prick and try hard as Broner is hes a insane talent and I enjoy watching the dude fight.

Hes a horrible rapper as well lol

Round 1: Rees out worked Broner, Broner in a feeling out process while Rees landing some nice combo's but nothing even close to major: 10-9 Rees

Round 2: Rees started ok but Broner landed some huge shots, Rees came back near the end but imo those big shots by Broner were the difference 10-9 Broner

Round 3: Broner just showing the physical and skill difference is just beyond insane atm, it would take a miracle for Rees who is not a KO puncher to stop Broner
10-9 Broner

Round 4: Broner HUGE uppercut to floor Rees, easy round for Broner, Rees did great to survive 10-8 Broner

Round 5: Ree's corner throw in the towel wisely, Broner dropped him with a body shot and was going to take more punches, typical gross mismatch to keep hyping a fighter this was a elite fighter against a average at best one.

Rees just had nothing to offer, far to short, unathletic and lacked any pop on the punches and not really that skilled against a freak in Broner.

Broners good he needs to fight better people but Broner wins via TKO (towel thrown in)

The long-rumored fight has been made official, as Floyd Mayweather will return to the ring on May 4 against Robert Guerrero, according to the official press release on BoxingScene.com.

Per the release, Mayweather has signed a six-fight deal with CBS and Showtime, and the first fight of that deal will be the fight against Guerrero.

This deal ends the relationship with HBO, which had broadcasted Mayweather fights in the past, and according to Leonard Ellerbe, one of the star fighter's advisers, it was no contest when it came down to where he would sign.

Negotiations have been long and slow between both camps, but it became apparent just before Christmas that this was the fight that was going to happen.

Mayweather has settled into a nice routine with his career in the last three years. He has fought once a year since 2009, twice on the weekend of or right before Cinco de Mayo. It is great marketing on his part, because it gets people accustomed to planning early to see him.

It also helps that Mayweather has been dominant in those three fights, defeating Shane Mosley, Victor Ortiz and Miguel Cotto. Even when he had the 16-month layoff between May 2010 and September 2011, he came back without missing a beat.

Mayweather destroyed Ortiz in his comeback fight, scoring his first knockout since 2007 against Ricky Hatton.

On the other side of the ring, Guerrero is a budding star in the sport. He has a 31-1-1 career record with 18 knockouts. His lone loss was a split decision and came in 2005. Since that time, he has won 15 fights with two no contests mixed in.

The reason Guerrero got a spot on a card against Mayweather is because of what he did in his previous fight with Andre Berto on November 24. Guerrero earned a unanimous decision win after knocking Berto down twice early and beating his eye to a pulp.

After that fight was over, Guerrero did exactly what you want to see from a new star trying to make a name for himself. He called out Mayweather. It takes guts to tell the best fighter in the world you want him.

Guerrero will get his wish. Now he has to prove that he is up to the task. He has a few months to prepare for the biggest fight of his life.

Floyd vs Robert Guerrero is official for May 4th
Floyd signs 6 fight mega PPV deal with showtime/cbs over the span of 30 months.

Donaire is not gonna fight rigo anymore. Rigo pulled out of vada testing which he originally agreed upon and signed to do. So donaire says no fight.

If you pull out of drug testing you are clearly a PED user in my books. he should get tested even if theres no fight and get banned if hes positive

6 fights in 30 months?! That's like one fight every 5 months or so? If it happens, awesome but I'll believe it when it happens.
