Floyd Mayweather has once again surprised the boxing experts by announcing the "front-runner" for his next fight. IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander will most likely be Mayweather's next ring foe on May 4.
Already, criticism is pouring in from writers such as a my colleague at Bleacher Report, Kevin McRae, who seems almost disgusted with the choice.
What they don't see is the business genius of such a maneuver.
While the likes of WBC interim champion Robert Guerrero or WBC junior middleweight champion Saul Alvarez were expected, choosing Alexander allows both to end up possibly on Mayweather's undercard.
Here's a look into how this sneaky maneuver could formulate a great business plan.
