    From the Washington Post:

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. is fond of saying he doesn’t fight for legacy anymore, instead preferring prize money. If he beats Shane Mosley on Saturday night in their non-title fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the undefeated six-time champion stands to collect the most lucrative payday of his life.

    The windfall would not necessarily be the direct result of a win over his 38-year-old opponent, but because a victory would set up Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao, a fight which would be the most anticipated non-heavyweight match in decades. Record-setting money almost certainly would follow, and fight fans finally would get the main event they have been clamoring for since discussions broke down between the camps in January.

    “Well, the thing is this, like I said before, of course I want to please the fans, and I want to please everybody that’s buying pay-per-view,” Mayweather said, “but self-preservation is the law of the land. I come first. I must fight for Floyd Mayweather first.”
