Undefeated welterweight and perennial pound-for-pound fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr. ended the speculation this morning with an announcement via twitter that confirmed rumours that he was ending his self-imposed retirement and taking a fall fight. ‘Money’ Mayweather (41-0, 25 KOs) will fight ‘Vicious’ Victor Ortiz (29-2-2, 22 KOs) on September 17, which also happens to fall on the highly sought after Mexican Independence Day Weekend.
Mayweather hasn’t fought since dominating ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley in May 2010 and has been plagued by legal troubles since then. Ortiz is coming off a career best win, rising from the canvass twice to dethrone previously undefeated WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto in what was an action-packed bout this past April.
Ortiz is a young, strong southpaw with speed and power, and should provide a stern test for Mayweather in what will surely be one of the biggest events of the year. Golden Boy Promotions will promote.

I sure hope he isn't playing around with his fans. Its good to read News about Mayweather returning to the ring.
