Floyd Mayweather has often found himself amid rumors and controversies. Being an unbeaten 5-division World Champion, Floyd Mayweather is also a superstar who leads an extravagant lifestyle. While he enjoys the attention and spotlight, the former world champion is now done with rumors and lies.

A few days ago, The Sun reported that the 43-year-old was dating Anna Monroe. What’s more, they were reported to be engaged. However, Mayweather hasn’t approved those reports and tagged them as “lies”.

Prior to his boxing return against Logan Paul, the undefeated pugilist made his relationship status clear to the fans.

He took to social media and posted an image stating, “I’m not engaged and have never been engaged or married. Those are just rumors and lies.”

Floyd Mayweather is a father. He has dated the likes of Shantel Jackson, Josie Harris, and Melissa Brim in the past with Melissa being the mother of his daughter Iyanna Mayweather. That said, Mayweather claims to have never married anyone.

He is a proud father, in addition to being a world-class boxer. The veteran boxer’s sons have also found interest in sports as Koruan Mayweather plays basketball and Zion Mayweather knows how to box.

What’s next for Floyd Mayweather?

Following a glittery pro career of 50 fights and several world championships, Mayweather has retired from boxing. However, he is open to facing Internet celebrities and MMA fighters in exhibition fights.

Mayweather outclassed UFC star Conor McGregor via TKO in 2017 and beat Tenshin Nasukawa in RIZIN in the same year. After that, he hung his gloves up for almost 4 years until a return against Logan Paul was offered to him.

The upcoming fight will be a 6-round exhibition held in the Tokyo Dome in Japan. Mayweather has faced severe backlash for returning to fight a YouTube star.

Several fans and boxing veterans have demeaned him. But Mayweather vs Paul can be an enormous success, citing a battle between a pair of popular celebrities. Therefore, it still has the fans’ interest and the potential to be the new PPV record-setter.
