RUMOR: Sept. 12 Mayweather Fight To Screen on CBS

The rumor mill is churning, and I’m hearing there is a distinct possibility that the next Floyd Mayweather fight, to take place Sept. 12, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, could be shown on CBS.

Yep, you read that right. No pay per view. No premium cable.

Top tier boxing, featuring the sport’s premiere A side against…well, we are not sure who. Andre Berto might be the lead dog to get that gig…

I reached out to a spokesman at Showtime, which has a deal, nearing it’s end point. The next fight is the last one of “TBE’s” six fight deal.

We have no comment at this time, the spokesperson told me.

Me, I’m thinking we hear about the next foe, and the platform, within two weeks. Because September is not that far away…

Hopefully Floyd can knock out a bum in an exciting manner and call it a day. Rejoice! AS the young guns move into the top positions.

No one should be surprised that free tv is where Lil Floyd is running. Few fans are going to pay to watch his arse on PPV after the MayPac Farce of the Century. And also with trouble for tsAH brewing. These muthasuckas ain't crazy. They are forever conning -- not cunning. Optical illusions and tricks of the trade are what they do. And they do them well. This time around, Money May will make more moolah on free television from paid commercials than he will make from 500,000 or so PPV payouts. Because he will be lucky to get that. Holla!

Wow! I hope that you don't really believe that. Money May and tsAH are taking off the heat. Their arses are booed everywhere that they go for the MayPac con job. Holla!

Mayweather can go suck an egg!! What is going to be different if he fights on free TV? NOTHING!! ZZZZZZZZZZZ!! Thankfully, he's retiring and we can now watch real fights with real men!! Can't wait for the era of GGG, Beterbiev and all the good fighters out there to begin!!


-SouthPawFlo :

How do you think a company would pay for a :30 commercial during a Floyd Mayweather fight?


-brownsugar :

I've said on a previous post on a similar topic that I wouldn't be surprised if Floyd staged a "Giving It Back" show as a way to express to his gratitude to his fans and anti-fans for making him the most wealthy and polarizing boxer in modern times since Muhammad Ali.... No!.... Floyd didnt stand for Civil rights, Human Rights, or even Girl Friends rights,.... But for the narcissistic "ME" generation of Generation X'ers he has become the poster boy of Frank Sinatra's "I did it my way" era of self indulgence, diva driven reality shows, and social media royalty. These comments are not a swipe at Mayweather, but more of a swipe at today's society and what the majority of us are preoccupied with. I think a fairwell performance on CBS would be a fitting way for Floyd to say Adios me amigo to the fans who built the Mayweather empire as he embarked on a two decade trek to become a legendary fixture of the timeless history of Boxing and an Icon of American Culture.

Whomever Floyd fights on free to air will not matter in terms of the numbers, as they will not only go through the roof but serve Haymon's defence quite well. That said I hope Floyd fights someone other than Mayfield or Berto, and someone that is easily recognized as credible. Get ready for the forum and boxing world to erupt again with Floyd LoveHate fever. :)

Hey jboatwright1 dude, welcome. Personally, I think Floyd's boxing game is pretty darn good and usually defend that. But about you now; have you seen a psychologist lately about these feelings and emotions? Just jiving with ya. Chill a bit and let objectivity govern your posts and you will be alright. :) :)
