UFC President Dana White revealed on The Jim Rome Show, that he's got a verbal agreement with Floyd Mayweather Jr. to come together for some type of event in October or November of next year.
Last month, the former five division world champion took to social media to announce that he's coming out of retirement in 2020.
Mayweather retired from the sport back in 2017, after stopping UFC superstar Conor McGregor in a mega-bout that generated over 4 million buys on pay-per-view.
Mayweather, 42-years-old, appeared in the ring on New Year's Eve, when he traveled to Japan to take part in an exhibition bout where he demolished Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a round.
The former pound-for-pound king was recently courtside at an NBA game with White, and claimed that something big was coming in 2020. At one point, Mayweather was baiting the idea of facing UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov in another cross-sport boxing match.
"Dana White and I are working together again to bring the world another spectacular event in 2020," Mayweather said on social media last month.
Mayweather has not taken part in a boxing match, with an actual boxer, since his September 2015 twelve round decision win over Andre Berto. Mayweather will turn 43 in February.
White, who intends to enter the boxing market with his planned promotional company Zuffa Boxing, did not reveal the exact plans that he has in store with Mayweather.
But he intends to sit down with boxer's longtime adviser, Al Haymon, in the next few months.
“It’s true. We sat at the Clippers game. We started talking and we literally got a deal done right there on the court. And if things play out the way things Floyd and I think they will, I will probably sit down with Al Haymon in March and get a deal on paper," White stated.
“If everything goes our way, Floyd and I would be doing something in October or November (of next year).”
The comments by White and Mayweather leave everything up to interpretation. Is Mayweather actually taking part in a sanctioning fight, an exhibition or is Mayweather coming together with White to co-promote an event between Zuffa Boxing and Mayweather Promotions.
