Floyd Mayweather Jr. (39-0, 25 KOs) vs. Juan Manuel Marquez (50-4-1, 37 KOs)
He's made noises about being ready to return to the fight game. Whether it be for the love of the sport, or the fact that he can sniff a huge pay day in the offing should Pacquaio beat Hatton, one thing for sure is that this is hardly an easy tune up fight.
You know I was in the sport for 11 years and I was World champion for 10 years. When it comes July 18th, I don’t have to tell you guys what I’m going to do cause you already know what I’m going to do. He’s going to bring his ‘A’ game and I’m going to bring my ‘A’ game.Once again, a small man will never retire me. You all know that. I’m the king. I’m here to stay. I left on the top and came back on the top, and you know I’m here to fight and reclaim what’s mine. I’m the king and nobody has ever taken my thrown, so how am I not the king if nobody has ever took my thrown? And so you have all these fighters out there claiming to be the best. I have fans coming up to me all day and night lately asking me who think is going to win (tonight’s bout between Ricky Hatton and Manny Pacquiao). Well, I to me any many can win. It’s a gamble. But when you bet on Floyd Mayweather, that’s for sure money. So when you ask me, I say put your money under your mattress and wait until July 18th, and then pull it out.
