Via LA TIMES:
Robert Guerrero’s promoter initiated conversations with Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s representatives Monday with hopes of staging a fight between the pair in the spring.
“Interest is there,” said Golden Boy Promotions Chief Executive Richard Schaefer.
Schaefer declined to comment regarding when and where a Mayweather-Guerrero fight might occur.
“It’s a process, one that has begun … I have a site and date in mind, but those conversations are best served now to take place behind closed doors,” Schaefer said.
Schaefer was in contact Saturday night with Mayweather Jr.’s advisor, Leonard Ellerbe, and the fighter’s manager, Al Haymon, who also manages Berto.
With Mayweather moving toward Guerrero as an opponent, that leaves Mexico star Saul “Canelo” Alvarez to root heavily Saturday night for Cotto to win the Wolrld Boxing Assn. belt against champion Austin Trout in New York.
