except it wont be with Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather Jr will be ending a 16-month layoff when he steps into the ring Sept. 17 against southpaw Victor Ortiz. Although Freddie Roach, Manny Pacquiao’s trainer thinks that the reason Floyd Mayweather Jr. took the Victor Ortiz fight is because Ortiz has the style that would help get Mayweather ready for a fight against Pacquiao, “Of course, that’s the first thing that came to my mind,” Roach said.

The comparisons are somewhat similar between Pacquiao and Ortiz they both are fast, high-volume punchers who tend to press the action and southpaws. Mayweather Jr. throughout his entire career has rarely fought southpaw fighters.

What do you think, is it true that Mayweather is getting ready to fight Pacquiao or just mere coincidence???
