Floyd Mayweather 'very likely' to fight again in September, according to Showtime

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Floyd Mayweather was reportedly in New York to meet with Showtime, and sports division head Stephen Espinoza feels he will fight again on September 14.

Though there are understandable doubts that Floyd Mayweather will indeed return to the ring on September 14, which would be his quickest turnaround in several years, Showtime Sports boss Stephen Espinoza says that Floyd recently met with Showtime executives in New York, and he feels that the fight will indeed happen.

"I think it's very, very likely [that Floyd will fight in September]. Floyd has been saying it for months. He was in New York earlier this week and stopped by the Showtime offices on Wednesday, and said it yet again. Floyd intends to be very active, which includes going right back into the ring on September 14th," Espinoza told BoxingScene.com.

Mayweather (44-0, 26 KO) made his return to the ring on May 4, beating Robert Guerrero over 12 rounds in the first fight of a six-fight mega-deal with Showtime and CBS Sports. Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions is reportedly already working on securing a Mayweather vs Canelo Alvarez fight for September 14, as Canelo (42-0-1, 30 KO) also wants to fight on that weekend, as he has for years now.

If the Mayweather event does go through, Top Rank will move their Juan Manuel Marquez vs Timothy Bradley fight to an October date, and with Manny Pacquiao returning in November, the fall is already shaping to be outstanding, and we're not even to summer yet.
