    I agree with you there. I remember when Tyson did this as well, which was the "beginning" of his boxing career going wayyyyyyy down hill

    Mayweather goes from WBC to WWE

    LOS ANGELES -- Floyd Mayweather Jr. will earn a record $20 million for his first professional wrestling match next month.
    The undefeated WBC welterweight champion will take on Paul "Big Show" Wight as part of WWE's "WrestleMania XXIV" at Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla., on March 30.
    The one-fight deal, which is believed to be the largest single purse for a pro wrestling match, was finalized in January by Mayweather's advisor, Leonard Ellerbee.
    "I had approached the (WWE) about a year ago but it didn't fit into our schedule," said Ellerbee after a news conference at Staples Center. "We sat down with them again about a month ago and they made an incredible offer and me and my business partner Al Heyman sat down with them and we cut the deal. It's an eight-figure deal worth $20 million just for this one fight."
    Mayweather is 39-0 in the ring, but the wrestling match will have a slightly more skewed tale of the tape than the 5-foot-8, 150-pound boxer is used to. Wight comes into match standing 7 feet tall and weighing 430 pounds.

    Well he should use Floyd's "two year retirement" to get some good wins at welterweight under his belt. I'd love to see him fight Hatton. Floyd's arrogant enough that if Cotto had a convincing win over Hatton and started to make people question, he'd do it. I'd love to see the fight too. Floyd's probably not going to be at the top of his game much longer if he still is though... it'd be shame if he waited too long.
