Floyd Mayweather couldn’t touch the benchmark set by himself, as he failed to win the exhibition bout against Logan Paul. It was ended as a draw because none of the men could knock each other out. However, the in-ring outcome has apparently put Mayweather in the clutches of criticism.

While he failed to go 1-0 over a YouTuber, we might have seen the last of Floyd Mayweather. Aged 44, he has clearly passed his prime. However, the 5-division world champion had vowed to appear in several exhibition bouts ahead.

While he denied making such a move in a post-fight presser, another lucrative pay-check can urge him to respond and face another boxer. Here’s a look at what’s next for Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather vs Jake Paul?

‘Money’ can file another attempt at the Paul brothers by facing Jake Paul next. Earlier this year, Mayweather posted a fan-made poster of his potential fight against ‘The Problem Child’.

Although it is nowhere close to becoming an official call, Floyd Mayweather can rightly fight Jake Paul in another lucrative PPV deal.

However, the 24-year-old can bring a deadlier challenge than his elder brother Logan Paul. From this point, Floyd Mayweather should analyze all the options before finalizing another opponent for himself.

But he still remains a top-tier boxer and arguably the best of the generation.

Rematch against Conor McGregor

Before his latest fight against Paul, Mayweather connected with Showtime and opened up on facing Conor McGregor for another time. Although the rematch can bring adverse results, Mayweather appeared optimistic about beating the UFC star once again.

He welcomed the idea of a rematch and said, “Absolutely. He easy.” (H/T- Sky Sports)

Meanwhile, Conor McGregor has also hinted at re-appearing in a boxing clash several times. So, we can see the former foes lock horns once again. It would be a massive blockbuster, adding millions to the bank account of both men.

Floyd Mayweather vs KSI

KSI, the only boxer to have beaten Logan Paul, has sarcastically billed himself as the best pugilist after Floyd Mayweather failed to outpoint ‘The Maverik’.

That said, Mayweather posted another fan-made poster of his possible clash with KSI at the beginning gif the year. Hence, can see this matchup come to life in a sensible way.
