Surprisingly, Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather has publicly laid out his blueprint for 2013, setting up dates for his upcoming bouts on May 4th and September 14th.

Mayweather’s advisor Leonard Ellerbe told ESPN, “”Mayweather Promotions is looking forward to these two gigantic Floyd Mayweather events in 2013, and we are in ongoing discussions with our promotional partner, Richard Schaefer (chief executive of Golden Boy Promotions) in finalizing the opponent and other aspects of the upcoming promotion.”

One would think that the top candidates to face Mayweather are Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Fernando ‘The Ghost’ Guerrero.

Alvarez, a big superstar in Mexico and a fighter that can draw large crowds, would certainly be a lucrative match up for Mayweather because of the PPV numbers that both together will be able to pull.

Guerrero on the other hand, is not a big draw but from a competitive side of things presents a real challenge for Mayweather. His recent victory over Andre Berto further proves that.

Mayweather’s last fight was this past May when he faced Miguel Cotto in what become a real battle and possibly Mayweather’s hardest battle inside the ring to date. There was talk of a possible rematch between the two but after Miguel Cotto’s lost to Austin Trout, the bout no longer makes sense.

In terms of the dates, it seems most likely that Mayweather will face Alvarez in May, and Guerrero in September.

Pacquiao is the only other fighter left out there that fans would favor over both Alvarez and Guerrero, but as we already know, that fight will most likely never happens, and if it does, it will be past overdue by then.

Mayweather’s comeback this time around has a bit more backstory due to his recent prison sentence in which he spent two months in jail for domestic abuse. Since his release on August 3, Mayweather has not made many public appearances or interviews so this comes as a big surprise but its very welcomed by boxing fans.

Regardless if you are a fan of Mayweather or not, him being back in the ring twice in 2013 brings excitement back to boxing due to the possible match ups that we might get a chance to see him in.
