Floyd Mayweather’s father Floyd Sr. and uncle Jeff have reacted to stories that involve a possible rematch between the pound for pound king and new WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto.
Speculation is rife that Mayweather would now move to fight for a sixth-weight world title having previously beaten the Puerto Rican at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas back in 2012. Trainer Floyd Sr. and Jeff didn’t fully deny that the fight could happen in the future, but predictably only saw one result if it the pair share the ring again.
Mayweather, who holds title belts at 147 and 154lbs himself, is scheduled to return in September on the back of his split decision victory over Marcos Maidana, although any fight with Cotto may come too soon for new 160lb ruler.
Cotto, 33, only defeated Sergio Martinez last weekend and three months prep won’t be enough to seal a second fight with the ‘Money’ man unless 37 year-old Mayweather is willing to delay his next outing – which is unlikely to happen.
