PITTSBURGH -- Floyd Mayweather Jr. is negotiating to meet unbeaten but oft-troubled Paul Spadafora in an elimination bout leading to a junior welterweight title fight against champion Arturo Gatti.

Promoters are working to schedule the bout May 8 in Madison Square Garden. The fight between a current world lightweight champion (Mayweather) and a former champion (Spadafora) would be the last in Mayweather's current contract with HBO.

Spadafora promoter Mike Acri said Tuesday he expects the World Boxing Council to issue a letter later this week designating the fight as a mandatory challenge. Mayweather is the WBC lightweight champion.
