Is boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. coming back for another fight? While the undefeated former champion recently reiterated he was staying retired, he also teased he is “coming out of retirement” in 2020.
So who might the boxing star be fighting in his comeback, or is it all another clever promotion for something else?
On Thursday, Floyd Mayweather posted two different Instagram posts, which sparked the rumors he may be contemplating a return to the ring. The first of those posts showed Mayweather courtside at a sports event next to UFC president Dana White.
Mayweather captioned the photo with, “@danawhite and I working together again to bring the world another spectacular event in 2020.”
The second post brought even more speculation as Mayweather posted an image of himself in his boxing trunks with gloves on. The photo included the caption, “Coming out of retirement 2020.”
As for who Floyd Mayweather will fight upon his return to the ring, that remains to be seen.
UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who defeated McGregor at UFC 229, challenged Floyd Mayweather to a boxing match last year. A potential rematch against former adversary Manny Pacquiao has been teased, too.
