Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has announced that he’ll be returning to the ring in 2020.
The 42-year-old made the announcement via social media after an earlier post revealing that he was in talks with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White.
Mayweather posted on social media a photo captioned, “Dana White and I are working together again to bring the world another spectacular event in 2020.”
It is speculated that Mayweather could be setting up a rematch with Manny Pacquiao. Talks of a match between the two have been increasing as the Filipino boxer is now represented by Al Haymon, who also manages Mayweather.
Mayweather could be set to enter the ring in May 2020 and again in September. This is not the first time the boxer has come out of retirement. Mayweather also came out of retirement in 2017 to beat UFC fighter Conor McGregor in his first ever boxing match.
Mayweather’s most recent fight was an exhibition boxing match in December 2018 against Japanese Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa. The American needed just 140 seconds to beat his opponent, earning him a reported $9m.
