Oscar and Mayweather to have Catchweight bout

Despite them both being WBC poster-boys, news reaches us that no title will be on the line in their proposed rematch 'pencilled in' for September 21st later this year.

The bout is rumoured to be set for a catchweight of 150 lb.

Oscar de la Hoya has already campaigned earlier this year at that weight in a unanimous decision over Contender star Steve '2 pound' Forbes at the Home Depot Centre, California.

Meanwhile Floyd Mayweather has been busy living up to his new 'Money Mayweather' moniker by earning several million for his appearance on the WWE Wrestling PPV against Big Show.

Floyd's present WBC title at Welterweight may also be vacated soon due to Floyd not facing a ranked mandatory. Andre Berto is possibly being lined up against a fellow WBC ranked opponent to contest the vacant title.
