Mayweather vs. Marquez nearly set for July 18

Sources close to the situation have just informed us that it's looking more and more like retired pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. will make his return this summer against WBA & WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez. Mayweather was originally rumored to make his return on July 11, the same date as UFC 100, against an opponent yet to be named. Apparently, after much debate over the weight at which the fight would take place, both Mayweather and Marquez are now close to agreeing to face each other on July 18.

Another thing, idk why people think Pacman would do so well against PBF because I can't see it. If PBF would have fought Pacmans last 2 opponents people would have given him hell for fighting weaker competition. If he would have fought DLH at WW he would have given him a beating similar to the one Pacman gave him. Imo, PBF is going to get the KO or TKO in the later rounds, even with the time out of the ring. PBF might not have power against the bigger guys but these lil fighters trying to move up to fight him are biting off more than they can chew. If i'm wrong i'll admit I was but i'm pretty adamant on this one.

im one of those that think that pacman would be sucessful against floyd, but i dont see this fight happening at least this year. pacman if he wins this fight against hatton would most likely fight mig cotto in november according to bob arum. depending if pacman wins in an easy fashion, which i disagree will happen, pacquiao would prolly need a break until next year to fight anybody else. if pacquiao beats hatton in a dominant fashion, more dominant than what mayweather was able to do against hatton, then floyd might just drop that outrageous offer and agree in the 50 50 split.
