Floyd Mayweather Jr. Accepts One-on-One Match with Big Show®

Anaheim, CA, February 19, 2008 — On last night’s RAW®, Big Show provoked WBC Welterweight Champion Floyd Mayweather into accepting a future one-on-one match, only one night after their initial showdown at No Way Out®. What began as an apology by Big Show to the greatest fighter in the world turned into a second standoff when Big Show stopped the boxer in his tracks as he and his entourage were leaving the ringside area. After hearing Big Show’s antics from inside the ring, Mayweather stormed back into the ring to accept his challenge.

Last night’s standoff comes off the heels of Big Show’s surprise arrival at No Way Out. Mayweather, as Rey Mysterio®’s guest, showed why he is considered the greatest fighter in the world by landing a lightening fast combination of punches on the Big Show.

Mayweather wrestles for $21m - 27th Feb 2008

Manager Leonard Ellerbe has defended a decision to have his unbeaten boxer, Floyd Mayweather, take part in a professional wrestling program in Florida next month.

Mayweather, considered by some to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, claims to have been offered $US20 million ($21.45 million) to take part in Wrestlemania XXIV on March 30 in Orlando, Florida.

The unbeaten World Boxing Council welterweight champ will battle 2.1 metre World Wrestling Entertainment star "Big Show".

Mayweather will be conceding around 113kg to the wrestling giant but Ellerbe says the move is all about underlining Mayweather's credentials as an entertainer rather than just a boxer, just as he did when the champion appeared on "Dancing With The Stars" in November.

"This is a tremendous, tremendous event, it's entertainment," said Ellerbe.

"Like anything, it's also a business and it's my responsibility to continue to expand his fanbase and take the Mayweather brand to another level."

Mayweather's manager insisted the diversion to the scripted-WWE event had nothing to do with helping to promote the boxer's proposed rematch with Oscar De La Hoya this September.

Ellerbe dismissed the suggestion that Mayweather was risking an injury that could derail his plans for an even bigger payday.
