Undefeated boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather, might be set to make another U-turn from his retirement despite previously insisting that the 50th victory of his boxing career would be his final fight.
According to Dailymail, Mayweather who defeated UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor in a cross-over clash for the ‘Money Belt’ back in August for his 50-0 win, still has the hunger to fight for a 51st time.
Multiple new reports are now suggesting that the 40-year-old former pound-for-pound king will return to the ring few months after his £259 million big money win in Las Vegas
It was gathered that Mayweather has been keeping in shape at his Las Vegas gym and consistently keeps his fans up-to-date via his Instagram page.
Showtime Sports general manager, Stephen Espinoza has refused to rule out a comeback, which would no doubt create yet more boxing excitement.
While speaking to TMZ Sports, he said: ‘Floyd has been telling people close to him that he is considering a 51st fight — and he has been training like a maniac in the gym.
‘He is still in fighting shape and ready to go and we have been told he is kicking around the idea of another comeback.’
Should he return, it remains to be seen who he would fight with previous opponent McGregor eyeing a showdown with Mayweather’s old foe Manny Pacquiao.
Current welterweight champion Keith Thurman could be a target while IBF ruler Errol Spence is another option, should Mayweather want to reclaim his 147 pounds crown.
Gennady Golovkin remains a mouthwatering potential opponent, with the big-punching Kazakh having a big desire to fight the American legend.
