Mayweather’s Attempted Comeback Reportedly Off
While it has really only been rumors floating through the air, 2020 appeared to be the year Floyd Mayweather was supposed to return to the boxing ring. Now, it appears those plants have been stopped until further notice.
According to TMZ, Mayweather (50-0), who stated he would be fighting twice in 2020, has been telling friends he does not have any plans to fight again. That may expand beyond 2020 as a result of recent events.
It was last week when Josie Harris, the mother of his three children, died unexpectedly. She was seen in her car in front of her home in Valencia, California. This week, he lost his uncle and trainer Roger Mayweather. Dealing with poor health for years, the former boxer and champion passed away following a battle with diabetes.
TMZ went on to say that the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter and several others in a helicopter crash has also hit Floyd hard.
Mayweather last fought in a professional boxing bout in 2017, when he and Conor McGregor competed in a superfight. He also took on Tenshin Nasukawa at Rizin 14 in December 2018 in an exhibition bout. “Money” Mayweather has been in talks with UFC President Dana White about collaborating on a project, and there were even rumors of a McGregor and a Manny Pacquiao rematch.
