Before Floyd Mayweather surrendered himself to Las Vegas authorities on June 1, "Money" made a jump in weight to the 154-pound junior middleweight division to take on then WBA and WBC super diamond champ, Miguel Cotto.
Mayweather won the bout via a unanimous decision, in one of the grittiest performances of his 43-fight career.
Mayweather looked comfortable with the added pounds, something that could become a main stay as Mayweather came out of jail looking jacked and bigger than his usual self.
With "Money's" added bulk and his solid showing against Cotto is his last fight, it is very feasible that Mayweather will opt to drop his WBC welterweight belt and continue on in the junior middleweight and middleweight divisions to end his career—as he could struggle to make the 147-pound welterweight limit from here on out.
Even though there are a few attractive fights in the 147-pound division with names like Timothy Bradley, Amir Khan and Manny Pacquiao, the struggle to make the welterweight limit could cause these fights not to take place.
The dream bout with Pacquiao is still at the forefront of every boxing fan's mind, and that is a fight that Mayweather could gladly put his best effort to make 147 pounds. If not it is possible the two could make a catch weight of around 150 pounds to finally get the two best fighters of a generation in the ring.
