Floyd Mayweather Jr. has happily retired with a fat paycheck following his megabout with MMA superstar Conor McGregor last August but it seems like the boxing great is still hungry for more as he reportedly ponders pulling off another money fight.
According to TMZ Sports, some people within Mayweather’s inner circle say the 40-year-old defensive boxing genius is already considering making another comeback to risk his spotless 50-0 record—if the price is right.
We wouldn’t really be surprised if that’s the case. After all, Floyd has already retired more than once, only to return for a multimillion dollar payday. He’s also been posting some hints with his intense workout videos that definitely show he’s still in tip-top condition.
Damn. Those left jabs are lit!
If it indeed happens, he would probably be facing McGregor in a rematch. Other potential fights that could generate interest include a rematch with our very own Manny Pacquiao or a fight against Gennady “Triple G” Golovkin. He’s also been called out nonstop by the likes of Amir Khan, Canelo Alvarez, plus a bunch of other fighters.
Showtime Sports executive Stephen Espinoza, for his part, thinks the chances for a Mayweather comeback are slim, but he didn’t totally turn down the idea of bagging another $300 million payday. “It’s Floyd’s call at some point but I haven’t heard anything that makes it seem like he’s thinking about McGregor or anyone else… If there’s a demand for it and people want to see it then sure, we’ll get behind the business,” he said.
