Mayweather remains confident for September 19 fight; undaunted by rib injury!

Upon uffering a rib injury in training back in June, Floyd Mayweather was forced to withdraw from his July 18 fight with lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez, but Mayweather had a speedy recovery and the bout has been rescheduled for September 19.

Clearly aware of the rib injury, Marquez has declared that his game plan consists of a body attack fully intended to hurt and dismantle Mayweather. "I know where he's been hurt and I'm going for it," said Marquez. "He is vulnerable now and I will take advantage of his weakness with a body attack that emphasizes two things-the right and the left."

Undaunted by setback in training that ultimately led to the postponement of the fight, Mayweather clearly has not lost any confidence in himself. Preparing for his newly rescheduled date with Marquez, Mayweather has been updating his Twitter page at and had a bold reply for his Mexican challenger.

Marquez says hes goin after my ribs but theres no weakness in MONEY MAY. Only
ribs he'll b diggin n2 will b at Outback after I take him down.

Should the fight be as memorable as the trash talk, boxing fans should be in for quite a spectacle at the MGM Grand on the night of September 19. Mayweather vs. Marquez: Number One/Numero Uno will be televised live on HBO Pay Per View.
