It appears that an Oscar De La Hoya rematch is not the only fight to make Floyd Mayweather, Jr. come out of his recent retirement. According to a recent report in the Newark Star-Ledger , Mayweather would be willing to come out of retirement for a potential bout with Felix "Tito" Trinidad, who also happens to be retired.

Trinidad has not fought since May 2005, when he was badly dominated by Winky Wright for twelve rounds. Mayweather thinks Trinidad would be an easy night of work.

"I'd fight Trinidad," said Mayweather. "It would be easy. He can't deal with boxers. He got hit by (Ricardo) Mayorga. Cory Spinks beat Mayorga. Zab (Judah) knocked Cory Spinks out and I punished Zab. So, Trinidad definitely ain't going to do nothing."

There has been talk of a rematch between Trinidad and De La Hoya. The two last met in 1999 in a bout that saw Trinidad win a controversial majority decision. One of the major obstacles holding up a rematch for the last few years has been the weight. Trinidad refuses to fight below 160-pounds, and De La Hoya won't fight Trinidad at 160.

Mayweather, who weighed 148-pounds on the night he won a split-decision over De La Hoya, is not worried about fighting Trinidad at 160-pounds.

"I keep telling you guys weight don't win fights," Mayweather said. "With Oscar, it was a welterweight fighting a middleweight."

dang, thats all i can say..... would be interesting to see DLH fight Tito and the winner would get PBF. BUT while DLH and Tito fight Pbf could fight Hatton.... Dang we might be in for a treat here soon.. but then again its the man that did all the talking before and no backing it up either... but we will see

this fight is totally pointless and floyd probabley would tko tito in a late round like hopkins. tito is way way way washed up, he couldnt land a single punch on winky, what makes you think he culd hit floyd. the fight would be boring. He would get a lot of criticism again for fighting an old guy and all people woul dtalk about after floyd destroyed him was, i was very impressed with tito tonight, but floyd got the win blah blah blah, he still hasnt faught anyone.
