Is Mayweather washed up?

Kevin Holloway

Floyd “Money” Mayweather is making his way out of retirement and into the boxing ring for the first time in two years. Mayweather, a boxing legend with nothing at all to prove has his pockets hurt by the economy like every other American. With a record consisting of thirty-nine wins with zero losses (25 by KO), it’s hard to see why he’d risk fighting such an opponent as worthy as Juan Miguel Marquez.

Marquez comes to this bout with a record of fifty wins, four losses, and a tie, an honorable record.

When Sept. 19th rolls around fans, critics, and the boxing world alike will get the answer; is Mayweather washed up?

The anticipated fight is destined to be an instant classic, which will try to resurrect boxing as a household talked about sport.

Oscar De La Hoya and his Golden Boy Promotions will be putting on this bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada that is sure to have people talking from all walks of life. It’s the biggest fight of the year showning in over 190 theatres across America.

This will be the first time since, “Sugar” Ray Leonard and Robert Duran in 1980. From town to town, college to college people raved about the enjoyment of seeing the fight on the big screen.

If Mayweather can pull this off and come out on top, he will win over the critics and people who said he was washed up, and he will have put himself in position for a fight with number one ranked Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and that will bring the biggest payday of either fighters’ careers.
