Floyd Mayweather has vowed to extend his unbeaten record to 42 fights when he returns to the ring next month. Mayweather, 34, challenges Victor Ortiz for his WBC welterweight title on September 17 in his first fight since dominating Shane Mosley over 12 rounds in May 2010.
“I am ready to return to the ring and give my fans a fantastic night of boxing by fighting the best out there,” said Mayweather. “For me, that is Ortiz. He is the current champion and an extremely talented fighter who showed amazing skills – and heart – in his last performance against Andre Berto.
“At this stage of my career, these are the challenges I look for – a young, strong, rising star looking to make his mark in boxing by beating me.
“Like the rest of my opponents, he is going to try to prove that he can beat me.
“I commend him for accepting the fight but on September 17 Ortiz is just going to be another casualty, the 42nd one who tried and failed.”
“Trust me, I will be ready.”
