Former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather is no stranger to exhibition fights.
Mayweather retired from the sport of boxing in August of 2017, after stopping UFC superstar Conor McGregor in the tenth round of their crossover boxing match.
But he returned in December of 2018, as part of a New Year's Eve exhibition fight in Japan - and he demolished kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in the first round.
Mayweather is now in discussions for yet another exhibition bout, possibly in Japan, to take place in late 2020 or in the first half of 2021.
A few days ago, a big exhibition fight was announced, with former world champions Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. colliding on September 12 in California.
Tyson, 54, returns to the ring for the first time since 2005. And Jones, 51, returns after being retired since early 2018.
Their eight round bout will be carried on pay-per-view.
Mayweather has no decisive opinion on the winner, but he expects the fight to be interesting.
The former pound-for-pound king believes the two retired veterans are following his lead when it comes to headlining in a high profile exhibition fight.
"I think that we seem to forget about who was the pioneer of making exhibition bouts huge. Joe, a lot of times we forget about certain things. I mean, I think that it’s gonna be very interesting. I’m not here to say Tyson’s gonna win, I’m not here to say Roy’s gonna win. I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be entertaining, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna watch it," Mayweather told rapper Fat Joe during an Instagram Live interview.
“I don’t know if I can go because I don’t think there’s gonna be any audience at that particular time. But, may the best man win.”
