Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced his return last March 18, 2009 from his retirement from boxing and much high-lighted after watching Manny Pacquiao reigned supreme over Ricky Hatton and snatched away two belts, the IBO and Ring Magazine Light Welterweight, May 2, 2009 at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
The last title fight of Pretty Boy Floyd is also with its reign over the Hitman last December 8, 2007 on the same place, MGM Grand, Las Vegas Nevada, though it took him 10 rounds to secure the welterweight belt.
May 2, 2009 is the day the world stood still, at least for the Hatton fans as they witnessed its fall in a 2nd round TKO in a fight with the invincible Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao. Floyd Mayweather Sr., Hatton’s personal trainer was very disappointed that he even said that Ricky “Hitman” Hatton should settle to retire.
Right now, the next fight to see is Floyd Mayweather Jr. VS Manuel Marquez this July 18, 2009. Manuel Marquez got two fights with Manny Pacquiao before with the first one a draw and a KO on the second. He wants to fight the Pacman on the third time but denied the chance of the comeback. Now both Floyd Jr. and Marquez have their reasons to prove who’s a better contender to fight on Pacquiao.
The question is, will we ever witness the Fight of the Century between Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. VS Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao as to crown who’s really the No.1 Pound-For-Pound Boxer of The World or we’ll just watch the greatest upset as Manuel Marquez push Floyd Jr. back to retirement and get an elusive comeback fight instead? We’ll find out soon. 😉
