According to anonymous sources close to the 5-time/5-division former pound-for-pound king, the official return of Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be announced on Saturday either before the scheduled Ricky Hatton/Manny Pacquiao bout or immediately after.
The comeback fight will take place on July 18th and Mayweather’s opponent will be current lineal Lightweight Champ, Juan Manuel Marquez. HBO PPV will air the broadcast.
The winner of Pacquiao/Hatton will then likely take on the winner of Mayweather/Marquez at some point in the Winter in a bout that will be hyped as a battle for the mythical Pound-for-Pound title.
Mayweather retired following his 10th round TKO over Hatton in December of 2007, completing a year in which he made approximately 50 million dollars in massive PPV successes against Hatton and Oscar De la Hoya.
