Mayweather Opponent Scratched
LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Floyd Mayweather will have a new opponent when he defends his WBC super featherweight title Saturday night.
Mayweather was supposed to meet Goyo Vargas on the undercard of the Oscar De La Hoya-Oba Carr welterweight title fight, but Vargas pulled out Wednesday because of illness.
Promoter Bob Arum was trying to find a substitute opponent for Mayweather, spokesman Lee Samuels said.
``Mayweather will be in the ring Saturday night,″ Samuels said.
The promoter for Vargas, America Presents, said the fighter had a sinus infection and gastroenteritis that led to dehydration.
