Floyd is Coming Back! Why Not a Timeline?

Floyd Mayweather Jr. to most people is known as the best boxer of our time. Mayweather is 40 years old he was born on February 24, 1977. he is undefeated as a professional boxer, and a five-  division world champion, with 49 wins 26 of those by knock out and zero losses. He retired for the first time after his bout with Oscar DE La Hoya where he won the fight with a split decision in 12 rounds saying that he had nothing left to prove in the boxing world. He came back to the sport on July 28, 2007, to fight Ricky Hatton to keep the welterweight championship. He then goes on to win ever fight that he is put into. Retiring for the second time after the Andre Berto fight where he won by unanimous decision, he then announced his retirement in the ring.


Mayweather may be coming back to the sport one more time. It was noticed that Mayweather promotions filled for trademarks of “TBE 50” and “TMT 50”. Mayweather then began to start rumors about a crossover fight with himself and MMA Star Conor McGregor. Mayweather talked to Freddie Roach to train McGregor for the fight. Dana White the president of the mixed martial arts organization UFC dismissed the rumors saying that Mayweather has not yet contacted him who holds McGregor’s contract. If the fight was to happen it would not be an easy win for the undefeated fighter.

Conor Anthony McGregor is 28 years old and the lightweight champion. McGregor held both the featherweight and lightweight belts from 2008 to 2012 at the same time before having to stay with the featherweight champion. He won his first UFC championship in thirteen seconds by knocking out Jose Aldo the former champion. McGregor has 21 wins 18 by knockout and 3 losses all by submission. McGregor has made it very clear that he has no problem fighting Mayweather with boxing rules. If may weather, choose to come back for one more it will be one to remember.
