After weeks and months of speculation, Guerrero finally gets the crack he’s been waiting for, as most experts expected.
However, perhaps the biggest news to come out of the announcement is that Mayweather has inked a deal with Showtime and CBS, which should obviously come as a huge shock to rival network HBO, which has been televising Mayweather’s fights for years.
According to Showtime, the deal enables Floyd to fight up to six times over the course of 30 months, the first of course coming on May 4. Showtime/CBS has not divulged any further information but this news has no doubt shifted the landscape of boxing.
Mayweather’s new deal is said to be the biggest in the sport though financials have are deemed confidential (for now at least).
Stay tuned for more information as it comes in!
On a related note, Saul Alvarez has confirmed via his Twitter account that he will face Austin Trout on May 4, in what will obviously amount to the co-featured bout.
