After a yearlong lay-off, one of the most promising prospects in the Pacific Northwest makes his return to the ring this Friday, November 7th at the Seven Feathers Casino in Canyonville, Oregon.

Despite his training schedule, Mayweather Jr. found the time to hold nearly two-hour discussion in which he appeared relaxed, confident, and in good humor prior to his September 17 HBO PPV fight.
