Floyd Mayweather Jr. Accepts One-on-One Match with Big Show(R)



    ANAHEIM, CA, Feb. 19 /CNW/ - On last night's RAW(R), Big Show provoked
WBC Welterweight Champion Floyd Mayweather into accepting a future one-on-one
match, only one night after their initial showdown at No Way Out(R). What
began as an apology by Big Show to the greatest fighter in the world turned
into a second standoff when Big Show stopped the boxer in his tracks as he and
his entourage were leaving the ringside area. After hearing Big Show's antics
from inside the ring, Mayweather stormed back into the ring to accept his
challenge.
    Last night's standoff comes off the heels of Big Show's surprise arrival
at No Way Out. Mayweather, as Rey Mysterio(R)'s guest, showed why he is
considered the greatest fighter in the world by landing a lightening fast
combination of punches on the Big Show.
