Showtime/CBS Negotiating Contract Extension with Floyd Mayweather Jr.?
By: Joseph Correa www.frontproofmedia.com
WBC/WBA Welterweight Champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0 26 Knockouts) is expected to fight Andre Berto on September 12, 2015 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. That deal has not yet been finalized, and it is not clear whether the fight will take place on CBS as reports have indicated.
Mayweather's next fight is the final in an exclusive 6 fight deal he signed with Showtime in early 2013, and has earned Floyd a reported $30 Million per fight guaranteed. Multiple sources have reported that CBS is attempting to negotiate a 3 fight extension which if successful, would certainly increase the guaranteed money Mayweather is currently receiving, and could bring about some very interesting fights in 2016. At this time it is not clear whether or not Mayweather will continue fighting as he has stated that this next fight will be his last, but if the money is right you never know.
