Mosley’s foe withdraws due to Haiti tragedyThe stellar fight could be announced “as soon as Tuesday,” according to David Mayo of The Grand Rapids Press.
The rumored clash is planned to take place on May 1 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was earlier reported that Mayweather would continue to fight on March 13, the schedule of his botched bout with Pacquiao.
Mosley was slated to fight on January 30 against Haitian Andre Berto at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
But Berto pulled out of the welterweight unification bout because of the devastation in Haiti where he lost some family members.
Pacquiao and Clottey, meantime, will formally announce their “The Event” fight also on Tuesday in Dallas, Texas. Their March 13 clash will be held at the Cowboys Stadium.
Mayweather and Pacquiao were supposed to face off on March 13 at the MGM Grand but talks crumbled because of their disagreement on the drug testing procedure. Pacquiao also sued Mayweather and some of his team members for alleging that the pound-for-pound king was taking performance-enhancing drugs.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr., who was left without a foe when Manny Pacquiao chose to fight Joshua Clottey, has reportedly found an opponent.
The undefeated boxing star is said to figure in a match against fellow American Shane Mosley.
