A smiling Floyd Mayweather Jr. was released from Clark County detention center in Las Vegas on Friday morning, he was wearing a grey hoodie with a black baseball cap underneath, and sporting facial hair, and seemed to be in good spirits after serving two months for pleading guilty to domestic battery of his former girlfriend Josie Harris.
One of the people there to greet Mayweather was his friend and promotional business partner rapper 50 Cent who recently obtained a promotional license in the state of New York for TMT promotions. 50 Cent and Mayweather’s TMT promotions could either turn out to be one of the strongest promotional companies in boxing or fail miserably depending on how serious they are about their new venture.
The question the entire boxing world wants to know, will Floyd Mayweather fight again and who will be his next opponent? The obvious opponent people want next for Floyd is Manny Pacquiao, who recently lost a controversial split decision to Timothy Bradley in a fight that an overwhelming majority of fight fans had Pacquiao winning comfortably — even the Mayweather family, Floyd Sr. and Jeff Mayweather said Pacquiao was robbed. There are a few obstacles concerning a Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao showdown; Bob Arum of Top Rank promotions, who mainly promotes in house fights and hasn’t co-promoted a Pacquiao fight since the Ricky Hatton pay-per-view in 2009, the financial payout for both fighters like revenue split, and the Olympic drug testing — Mayweather claims Pacquiao hasn’t agreed to random drug testing and the Pacquiao side say he’s agreed.
