- Floyd Mayweather may be coming out of retirement this year
- The 43-year-old was said to have squandered the $1b he made during his active days in boxing
- British boxer Amir Khan made the claims about the American who retired in 2017 after going 50 matches without a defeat
Amir Khan has predicted the return of Floyd Mayweather to the rings for the first time since he hung up his gloves in 2017.
The 43-year-old was said to have squandered all the fortunes he gathered during his stellar career where he avoided defeat in his 50 professional fights.
Mayweather announced his retirement three years ago after outshining UFC star Conor McGregor, but the 33-year-old British boxer foresees his rival staging a come back in 2020.
SunSport reports that the American has been posting a few videos of himself back in the gym, even returning to sparring.
Khan told World Boxing News: “I mean, Floyd Mayweather, to fight again? – At the end of the day, I don’t know.
“Floyd Mayweather is one of those fighters who might have spent up (all his money) and might have to come back to the ring again.
“He spends a lot of money, but I don’t know if he’s ever going to want to come back. As I said, maybe he’s going to.”
The Sun claims Mayweather reportedly earned $1 billion throughout his career, but has been accused by McGregor and former friend 50 Cent that he has somehow blown all his cash.
The American has distanced himself from the news making the rounds in the media about him fighting Manny Pacquiao the second time having beaten him in 2015.
He however is open to facing McGregor again, or UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Khan thinks 41-year-old PacMan, the current WBA welterweight champion, maybe influencing Mayweather to make a return to the ring, even without fighting him.
He explained: “He’s [Floyd] been out of the ring a long time and he is getting older. You have to remember his age, he’s 43 years old.
“Obviously, you’ve still got Manny Pacquiao going at 41. Mayweather might see that and think I can keep going boxing as well.”
Legit.ng earlier reported that Mayweather has reached a status of making a breathtaking amount by doing very little, or sometimes nothing as he rakes home thousands or even millions of dollars.
