No Floyd Void: Mayweather Still on Minds

He is gone but not close to forgotten.

No surprise, he's the guy who most non boxing fans name when asked if they know one pro boxer and his drawing power means any foe makes their career best payday against him.

So, yeah, Floyd Mayweather is still relevant, and on people's minds.

“If Floyd Mayweather comes back, I think he should be coming back for the winner of the WBA title,” said Shawn Porter, who guns for that bauble, now possessed by Saturday foe Keith Thurman, at a Thursday press conference in Manhattan. “And I look toward to being the winner of that title. Do I have any inside dope on him coming back? The only thing I do know is he has been remodeling his gym and what I've been told is, when he does that, it means he's gonna fight. And that's a good sign for the winner of this title.”

Editor/publisher Michael Woods got addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the thought to be impregnable Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist Woods has covered the sport since then, for ESPN The Magazine, ESPN.com, ESPN New York, RING, and he was editor of TheSweetScience.com from 2007-2015. Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and for Facebook Fightnight Live since 2017. He now does work for PROBOX TV, the first truly global boxing network.
