But Mayweather has not given up on his training and remains a fitness maniac, even post-retirement. That said, Floyd Mayweather will reportedly return to action in exhibition bouts and he already seems to have begun an active camp.

Just when the boxing world saw Jake Paul KO Ben Askren in a Triller main-event, Floyd Mayweather was spotted running on the streets with his earphones on. It is no secret to the combat world that Mayweather often goes out for unorthodox training regimes.

However, his recent move can be a subtle message to his nearing opposition in Logan Paul. Although the fight is still not official, Mayweather might have decided his stance.

Floyd Mayweather and his 2021 Plans

There’s a lot going around in the combat world, and Floyd Mayweather is absolutely valid and relevant in the current mix. He has a scheduled bout with YouTuber Logan Paul on board. However, without official date and venue, the matchup is still up in the air. But Mayweather’s fighting radar goes beyond that.

A few days back, he was spotted meeting with UFC chief Dana White and RIZIN Kingpin in Sakakibara. In 2017, Mayweather had joined hands with both men and unveiled two back-to-back crossover fights. First, he beat UFC’s two-division champion, Conor McGregor, in a high-voltage boxing clash. Then, the undefeated boxer faced Tensin Nasukawa at RIZIN and claimed a lopsided victory.

Hence, he can land up into the promotions once again, especially when Dana White has teased a massive move in the coming days. As per Mayweather, he is done fighting professional boxers. But is open to squaring off with Internet stars and MMA fighters. So, he might search for another lucrative payday that can relinquish his inactivity in fashion.

Do you think Floyd Mayweather will return soon this year?
