Floyd Mayweather Jr. who has also been a World Champion in five weight classes last official professional boxing match was in 2017. Since then, rumors have risen that he is coming back, most recently, for example, he said he was preparing for something and would return in 2020. He was talking about working with Dana White. Two fights are always in the air, two rematch against Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor, but another MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov has also been mentioned. Nurmagomedov’s manager said last year that negotiations had begun, but somehow it sat down.
Mayweather defeated Pacquiao in scoring in 2015 and McGregor in 2017 (this was Mayweather’s last official fight) with a TKO. These two fights were the most-watched and most-moneyed clashes in Money’s career. By the way, both losers have wanted a rematch ever since. Maybe one or both of them will be lucky this year. If Mayweather returns, we can be sure that he will pick an opponent who can raise a 9-figure payday. He doesn’t give it any lower.
Mayweather himself put two posters on his social network, one with McGregor and the other with him and Nurmagomedov and the 2020 date. In addition, along with his own logo, the pictures include the UFC logo (probably because of his collaboration with Dana White) and the Showtime logo, so Mayweather has already picked the broadcaster. If any will done, it would probably be in boxing rules, because in the octagon, the risk to “Money” would be much greater, so it would almost certainly be defeated against any of them. McGregor said few days ago that he wanted to go back into the boxing fight and want a rematch with Mayweather or a match against Manny Pacquiao. The Irishman said he can beat Money in the rematch.
