While Mayweather’s extravagant lifestyle is no secret to his fans, his affection towards his family is also well known. That said, his whole boxing career has also revolved around his family members with his father and uncle being his chief trainers. Continuing in the same vein, Mayweather might look to emulate his father and uncle.

Earlier this year, Mayweather became a grandfather for the second time as his daughter, Iyanna ‘Yaya’ Mayweather, gave birth to a son. Floyd Mayweather was seen carrying his grandkid in several social media posts. Given his latest post, we may actually see Grandpa Floyd Mayweather become his grandson’s boxing coach.

After an unscratched career of 50-0, which saw him become a champion at five-weight classes, Floyd Mayweather has hung his gloves professionally. While he was still active in exhibition bouts, a draw against Logan Paul might have urged him to retire totally.

What’s next for Floyd Mayweather?

At the beginning of 2021, Mayweather had claimed that he would appear in several exhibition fights. He even posted fantasy fight posters of him against Logan Paul, Jake Paul, and KSI. A rematch against Conor McGregor was also on the line. However, 6’1” tall Logan Paul gave him a tough time in the ring.

As the matchup only considered knockouts to be a valid win parameter, there was no winner in the bout that went to the final bell. Hence, Mayweather had to depart without a win against a YouTuber turned prizefighter.

In the fight’s aftermath, ‘TBE’ claimed that he may never fight again. Considering his remarks, donning a trainer’s cap, that too, for his own family, can be the best option for Floyd Mayweather.
