Floyd Mayweather has been stripped of THE RING's junior middleweight title, a title he won when he beat Canelo Alvarez nearly two years ago. That also happens to be the last time Mayweather fought at the junior middleweight division (albeit at a catchweight for that fight).
The magazine's rule is to strip fighters of their title if they do not schedule a fight to compete in the division where they hold a belt for 18-months. Floyd has fought three times since Canelo, all at the welterweight limit, and with Andre Berto getting his next fight, the time has finally come for them to make their junior middleweight title available again.
Alternatively, newly minted welterweight Danny Garcia has decided to throw in his hand as he opted to vacate THE RING title at junior welterweight - a title he won after knocking out Amir Khan in 2012. Garcia hasn't fought at 140lbs since winning a debatable decision against Mauricio Herrera a year-and-a-half ago.
