Mayweather has been around since 2017 no longer fought professionally when he defeated UFC’s Conor McGregor to claim his 50th career win. He fought Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018, but that was an exhibition game.
His return to the ring is unconventional, but Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, told BoxingScene.com’s Jake Donovan that he saw this as an opportunity consider expanding boxing.

Once you live in this bubble and just do things in that bubble, you’ve never done one Chance to split up. «
