Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has been reportedly lined up to face former super featherweight champion Takashi Uchiyama in a fight which is expected to take place in Japan.
This is an indication that the American is keen to make a return to the ring since he retired after beating Conor McGregor in what was a super fight.
Floyd Mayweather is one of the most successful boxers in the world considering the money he has made and also the properties he has acquired thanks to boxing.
The 43-year-old has a private jet, super yacht, mansions and many cars in his garages. His children are also living large.
Two years ago, Floyd Mayweather had an exhibition fight against Tenshin Nasukawa in which he won and got a massive pay out for the victory.
According to the report on Daily Mail, E-fight are the promoters are in charge of organizing another exhibition fight for Floyd Mayweather.
"Mayweather vs Takashi Uchiyama is the most exciting. There are various problems such as immigration, opponents, money, etc.
"But communication with the person is progressing positively. I expect the possibility,'' Promoter Nobuyuki Sakakibara explained.
Before Uchiyama retired from boxing four years ago, the 40-year-old had 27 fights and lost two while Floyd Mayweather won all his 50 fights.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how American retired boxer Mayweather reiterated his commitment not to return into the rings despite calls that he should come out of retirement to fight and also make good money.
Mayweather who made close to, if not more, than $1 billion during his 21-year professional career has responded to criticisms from UFC star Chael Sonnen and rapper 50 Cent that he is "broke".
The 43-year-old retired in 2017 right after he defeated Conor McGregor in the 10th round of their fight where he made not less than $200 million.
Floyd Mayweather lifted five different weight titles having won all his 50 professional bouts to make him the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of all time in a glittering career.
