Floyd Mayweather Jr. has damaged cartilage in his ribs and will stop training for his comeback fight until a doctor says he can resume.
Promoter Richard Schaefer said that Mayweather has been in tremendous pain since suffering the injury during training last Thursday.
Mayweather (39-0, 25 KOs), a Las Vegas resident, as previously reported by Las Vegas Backstage Access, was scheduled to fight Juan Manuel Marquez (50-4-1, 37 KOs) on July 18 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Schaefer said both fighters have committed to rescheduling and a September date has been mentioned. But promoters and the fighters won’t agree to a date without the OK of doctors.
