Mayweather got himself an opponent and this time its the dangerous Sugar Shane Mosley who boast a (46-5, 39 KOs) record. Mayweather has already finalized the deal on Wednesday, the fight is on May 1 in a welterweight bout at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.

This is Mayweather second fight since coming of from since retirement. "This one is definitely for the fans, as I wasn't going to waste anyone's time with meaningless tuneup bout and asked to fight Shane immediately," Mayweather said. "I have said ever since i came back to the sport that i only wanted to fight the best. I think Shane is one of the best, but come May 1, he still won't be great enough to beat me."

Mayweather and Mosley agreed to participate in Olympic style drug testing for their fight, saying they hope to set a new standard for safety in boxing. Mosley has acknowledged using steroids before a victory over Oscar De La Hoya in 2003, but claims he did so inadvertently through a coach who had connections with the BALCO lab.
