Floyd Mayweather is arguably one of the greatest boxers of all time to have ever set foot in the ring. His undefeated record of 50-0 is a testament to his extraordinary boxing prowess which was honed with the help of his uncle Roger Mayweather and father, Floyd Mayweather Sr. Through his talent and determination he managed to become one of the highest athletes of all time. Moreover, he was so popular in his prime that his several fights still hold the record for most PPV sales of all time.

Ever since his retirement, he has been taking part in exhibition matches. Overall he has fought around 7 exhibition fights, his list of opponents includes Logan Paul, Mikuru Asakura, Aaron Chalmers, etc. However, one fighter managed to stand out from all his other opponents. And it seems that Mayweather is going to go toe-to-toe against this fighter once again.
Earlier this year, Mayweather went toe-to-toe against John Gotti III in an exhibition bout. Initially, the fight went as expected and Mayweather dominated John Gotti III. He even started playing around mocking his opponent. Moreover, Gotti seemed reluctant to throw punches at the former champion. He only started to do so in the later rounds. However, as the referee stopped the fight after not being able to separate the two, all hell broke loose.

Notably, Gotti III and Mayweather both stopped paying heed to what the referee was saying towards the end of the fight. They even started trash-talking amid the bout. Furthermore, Gotti being frustrated because of the fight getting stopped, attacked Mayweather. This caused a brawl to break out all over the arena as both teams filled the ring. It seems that Mayweather wants to finish things off properly this time as he recently announced the rematch on his social media.

He shared the poster for his next fight on Instagram. Moreover, in the caption, he wrote, “Kicking Off Super Bowl Weekend – Unfinished Business. See You Guys In Las Vegas. More Details Coming Soon!! @mayweatherpromotions”. Though the exact details about the venue and date are unknown. It will be interesting to see how the two go at one another after entering the fight with such bad blood.

Manny Pacquiao’s hopes for a rematch dashed?

This announcement from Mayweather is certainly surprising considering Manny Pacquiao was pushing for a rematch bout against him. The Filipino legend was present during the highly anticipated Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou bout. After the controversial bout, he hinted at the possibility of a rematch between the two legendary rivals. He had shared that the two may end up locking horns next month.

Even though both fighters are now much older and retired, if the fight could be made then it would have undoubtedly attracted the attention of boxing fans all over the world. He stated, “I’m still active, I’m an active guy, I’m actively training. I have an exhibition match this coming December in Japan. We’re working on it, the opponent. We’re working with Mayweather. Yes [a Mayweather fight].”
