Floyd Mayweather Jr. first took on Marcos Maidana in a welterweight unification match on May 3. Now the pair are scheduled to box again next month.
While the rematch hasn’t officially been announced, the Showtime pay-per-view fight is slated to take place on September 13.
ESPN confirms the fight, citing a Mayweather intervie with LaTen Media, where the champion said that he would be facing Maidana again in a rematch.
“Sept. 13, back in business, Marcos Maidana-Floyd Mayweather, part II. And then in May, I’m fighting in May and I’ll have a big surprise for ya’ll,” Mayweather said in the interview.
Despite the interview, there is still no official deal on the table according to Maidana’s manager. The two sides are talking, however, and Maidana already basically confirmed the match via social media.
“REMATCH in the talks. Respect for @FloydMayweather man of his word, yet only fist talk in the ring. #LATINPOWER,” Maidana tweeted.
If the deal pushes through, this will be Mayweather’s second out of three fights in his six-fight deal with Showtime.
