Mayweather Promotions seeks license in New York

Ethan Miller

Floyd Mayweather's promotional company appears set to be licensed by the NYSAC, fueling speculation his next fight could be at Barclays Center.

Is Floyd Mayweather leaving Las Vegas? Tired cliches aside, it appears Mayweather Promotions will receive a promotional license by the New York State Athletic commission, according to a report by Michigan Live.

The news is fueling speculation that Mayweather could be planning to fight at Barclays Center in the near future. Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark floated Mayweather an "unprecedented" offer for his May fight with Marcos Maidana, and according to Yormark the Center's doors remain open to a future fight with the biggest name in boxing. No surprise there.

One reason why Las Vegas hosts so many big fights is Nevada's relatively low income tax rate. Taxes in New York (and most other states) are significantly higher, something that's certainly not lost on The Money Team.

Adding to the intrigue, Mayweather Promotions doesn't have a license in Nevada meaning Floyd and team would have to work with a company that does for future fights in Vegas. They've worked with Golden Boy Promotions for years, but we know that probably won't be the case going forward.

Oh, and in related news that should surprise no one, Floyd's company has hired former Golden Boy Promotions COO Bruce Binkow as a consultant.

Perhaps Mayweather is thinking a different location could bring some needed buzz to the (likely) rematch with Maidana on September 13th?
