Almost five years have passed since Floyd Mayweather's last professional performance. The best boxer of the 21st century recorded his 50th professional victory in August (the eighth month) of 2017, and he celebrated against Conor McGregor.
Floyd didn't make any professional appearances after that, but we saw him in various exhibitions such as those against Tenshin Nasukawa, Logan Paul, and Don Moore. Floyd looked very good in the fifth month of this year during the exhibition match with Moore.
All this encouraged him to perform more, and in the ninth month, he will fight at Rizin's event against MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura. In an interview with the Mirror, Floyd revealed that he plans to be extremely active, but that the offer will have to be very generous if someone wants to see him again in professional boxing performance.
“I am still the most talked about fighter in boxing and I don’t even fight anymore. All I do is rob the bank and they are going to continue to pay me. I got three more exhibitions this year, which could be one fight and fighting in two exhibitions.
But guess what, you better know it’s at least and this is the lowest I am talking about $200 million,” Floyd revealed. So, Floyd Mayweather is still the king of earnings when it comes to boxing matches, and it is obvious that the interest in organizing his matches really exists.
It will be interesting to follow with whom he will do the next exhibitions, as well as that eventual professional performance.
Japan Experience: My legacy is already engraved in stone
“I had so many great days competing at the highest level, but this is a great feeling now to be able to travel the world and do these exhibition bouts and have fun,” Mayweather said.
“My legacy is already engraved in stone. It’s great to be able to entertain people around the world and from all walks of life. Come September in Japan, we’re going to give the people what they want to see. They want to see me still competing and be entertained by Floyd Mayweather”.
