Schaefer: Floyd Mayweather will make September 14 plans soon

Al Bello

Richard Schaefer says Floyd Mayweather definitely plans to fight on September 14, and he expects the pound-for-pound king to announce his specific plans soon.

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer says that Floyd Mayweather does intend to fight on September 14, and knowing that plans need to be made soon for that date if it's going to happen, he expects Mayweather (44-0, 26 KO) to announce his plans "in a couple weeks."

Mayweather, 36, is coming off of a routine May 4 win over Robert Guerrero, a fight that may have underperformed on pay-per-view in the first fight of his mega-deal with Showtime Sports. Though promoters have said it will go over one million, ESPN.com reporter Dan Rafael is adamant that the fight was last around 870,000 buys, and that it won't go over a million. It would be Floyd's first sub-million pay-per-view since 2007.

But all that aside, Mayweather obviously puts the sport on a different level when he fights, and having him back so quickly would be nothing but good for boxing. Schaefer has insisted that he's working hard on putting together a Mayweather vs Canelo Alvarez fight, which would be massive on pay-per-view, at the gate, and everywhere else, but if that can't happen, leading candidates to face Floyd in September are fairly thin, as Amir Khan doesn't plan to fight until December because of Ramadan. We might be talking about Devon Alexander as the second option here.

Hopefully, Mayweather fights again in September. If 48-year-old Bernard Hopkins can go in March and July, Floyd can pull off May and September.
