The 43-year-old has expressed his interest for a long time to get in the ring. He found the cruiserweight sensation, Logan Paul, as an ideal opponent who can welcome him to the squared circle. Although the duo’s weight classes are far apart, it hasn’t seemed to have affected the 50-0 professional.

After his retirement in 2017, ‘Money’ competed in an exhibition bout a year later on new year’s eve. He fought Tenshin Nasukawa and dispatched the young gun in just 1 round.

Ever since then, the undefeated pugilist distanced himself from the ring. But, his love for the sport couldn’t keep him away for long.
