Golden Boy Promotions announced the return of Floyd Mayweather Jr. to the boxing in a press conference at the Hollywood Theater of the MGM.

Mayweather will fight Juan Manuel Marquez on July 18 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in a tiff dubbed as “Number One vs. Numero Uno.”

Mayweather, 32, has not fought since his 10th round stoppage of Ricky Hatton in a WBC welterweight title bout in December 2007. He has a career record of 39-0 with 25 knockouts.

Marquez (50-4-1, 37 KOs) on the other hand, the World Boxing Association lightweight champion, will move up in weight for the fight.
