The LA Times reports that Golden Boy Promotions has initiated discussions about the fight with Mayweather’s reps.
Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer told the Times that “interest is there” on Mayweather’s side for the fight.
Schaefer reportedly was in contact with Mayweather’s advisor, Leonard Ellerbe, and his manager, Al Haymon, on Saturday. Haymon also manages Berto, who lost to Guerrero by unanimous decision.
Guerrero has been in the mix to be the one to hit the Mayweather lottery since early this year, but Mayweather decided to fight Miguel Cotto in his most recent bout.
Until his win over Berto, Guerrero didn’t have enough of a resume or name to merit a fight with Mayweather, who selects his fights and opponents very carefully. Mayweather could choose to fight Guerrero some time next year, or he could go with someone like Canelo Alvarez late next year. Just don’t expect a Manny Pacquiao matchup in the near future.
