Mayweather Promotions have requested September 12, 2015 to promote MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, for a PPV event. The request to Nevada State Athletic Commission is set to a hearing on Thursday for approval.
The requested event is likely Floyd Mayweather vs. (TBA). Only a few names are being talked about; Amir Khan, Pacquiao rematch and maybe Kell Brook. Pacquiao is out due to his shoulder injury and recovery time. This leaves Khan & Brook. Khan has been VERY vocal over the years about fighting Mayweather. Many in the boxing industry would like to see Khan vs Brook and Mayweather take a backseat until next year May 2016 for a rematch with Pacquiao. There is another problem with the September date, Canelo vs Cotto is also being discussed for the same night. No doubt that things will get messy leading up to the Sept. fight night.
