Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced that he wanted to vacate his titles after he beat Manny Pacquiao.

So, the WBO set up a fight between Timothy Bradley and Jesse Vargas for the welterweight title. Now, Mayweather is saying hold up on all that.

Reports came out stating that Mayweather had his lawyers block the fight from being for a title.

Here’s what Bad Left Hook had to say about the situation:

“In short, Mayweather’s attorney petitioned the WBO to prevent them from allowing a fight for their world title until Mayweather has sufficient time to decide whether or not he really wants to vacate. The WBO responded by citing all of Mayweather’s statements (indicating that he intended on vacating his titles), but ultimately gave him a July 3rd deadline to inform them of what he wants to do.”
