Gatti-Mayweather Purse Bid On Friday!

Just mintues ago, WBC President Jose Sulaiman informed Boxingtalk.com that a purse bid for the Arturo Gatti-Floyd Mayweather Jr. bout will take place at 4pm on Friday afternoon at the WBC's offices in Mexico.  Yesterday Boxingtalk.com asked Main Events attorney Patrick English for Gatti's position relating to Mayweather being the mandatory challenger, and we're still waiting for his reply. It should be most interesting to see if Gatti decides to vacate his title rather than face Mayweather. Boxingtalk.com will continue to keep you updated so stay tuned to our front page at all times. Full exlcusive interview with Sulaiman to follow shortly. Remember where you heard it first! (5:55 PM ET)
