THE world's best boxer, Floyd Mayweather junior, will challenge WBC and WBA super welterweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on September 15 in Las Vegas. 

Mayweather, 36, gave a 12-round drubbing to highly-regarded Robert Guererro in his last outing to take his unblemished record to 44-0, 26 KOs on May 4.

Alvarez, who is 23 next month went to 42-0-1, 30 KOs with a unification win over Austin Trout in April.

It hasn't been confirmed but chances are three division world champion Sugar Shane Mosley will come down under to face Anthony Mundine in August or September.

Mosley said this week that he wants to stay at 147 pounds/66.68 kg (welterweight) but the big money Team Mundine are offering he's willing move back up to 154 pounds/69.85 kg (super welterweight).

Mosley took the WBC International welterweight strap on May 19 and is rated 11 by the WBC. Mundine is no. 9 by the WBA and IBF.

Jamie Myer's next local promotion takes place at the Tweed Civic Centre on June 28 featuring both boxing and mixed martial arts.

Commonwealth featherweight title challenger Corey Mc Connell headlines with No. 16 Australian heavyweight Jamie McDonald from the Tweed Stingrays Gym also in action. Several MMA fights will kick off the show.
