By John Benz, Doghouse Boxing (April 16, 2009)  
Although Floyd Mayweather Jr. has yet to make an official announcement to mark his return, that hasn't stopped the web from being on fire in regards to who Mayweather Jr. should fight. In a recent poll conducted by the Grand Rapids Press, readers were asked to vote on which fighter they'd like to see Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight in his return to the sport.

The publication gave it's readers the choice of five fighters. Those fighters were, Manny Pacquiao, Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez and Shane Mosley.

Out of 1891 votes so far calculated, a whopping 82% of readers polled want Mayweather Jr. to face Pacquiao first. Next on the list at a very distant 9% went to Shane Mosley. Juan Manuel Marquez, who I personally voted for only received 5%.

Both Hatton and the recently retired De La Hoya both took in 1% of the votes.
