The new story arc of exhibition fights in Floyd Mayweather‘s life started in 2018 after his retirement. When one of the top RIZIN kickboxers, Tenshin Nasukawa entered the ring against the legendary boxer of this era. The concept of exhibition fights lured Mayweather again into the sport of boxing. Once he found this way of making fights, he never looked back. Since 2018, Mayweather has had six exhibition fights in total. His previous exhibition contest against Aaron Chalmers was Mayweather’s first time-fighting in the United Kingdom.

In the 2005 NBC documentary on Mayweather, uncle, and former trainer Roger Mayweather told the world that you never know when Mayweather could get ready to put in some work. He could be at a restaurant or even a nightclub, and the next minute he would be seen running back home.

Even Mayweather stated that he didn’t like working in a predetermined “regimen“. He said, “I stay up late, I run with Timberlands on, with jeans on, T-shirt, whatever I’ve got on, I’ll run.” At one point, it became a normal sight when Mayweather in his prime, could be seen running back home from a Las Vegas nightclub after a party.
