Final Mayweather-Mosley notes

By Francisco Salazar

Long after the post-fight press conference had officially ended, Floyd Mayweather remained on the dais, answering more questions from reporters and giving live television interviews. He even stayed longer to sign gloves, media credentials, and posters to those in attendance before heading to his official post-fight party at Studio 54 at the MGM Grand.
On top of the 15,117 people in attendance inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer announced that 12,748 seats were sold at closed circuit locations at other casinos and venues in Las Vegas. Schaefer also announced that Saturday’s gate exceeded $11 million.
Floyd Mayweather adviser Leonard Ellerbe told that plans are in progress to promote a show featuring boxers that fight under the Mayweather Promotions banner. Ellerbe did not elaborate on where and when, but one would assume it would be in or near Las Vegas, where Mayweather Promotions is based out of. Dion Savage, Jessie Vargas, Said Ouali, and Cornelius Lock are not only are promoted by Mayweather, but saw action on Saturday night. Of all the fighters, Lock was the only fighter who did not win, losing a close unanimous decision to Featherweight contender Daniel Ponce De Leon.
Mayweather-Mosley will be replayed on HBO Saturday along with the live telecast of the 154-pound showdown between Paul Williams and Kermit Cintron.
