Floyd Mayweather who is an American boxing legend is reportedly set to make a stunning return to the ring and would face YouTube superstar Logan Paul in an exhibition battle.

Since Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor three years ago in what was a big duel, the American has not fought any other professional match.

There have been calls for the 43-year-old to come out of retirement since then, but Floyd Mayweather claimed that he is making more money without fighting.

YouTuber Keemstar has tweeted out that a "boxing insider" revealed to him that Mayweather vs Paul will happen in 2020 which will be a big one.

The Fighting News' Mike Feinberg said in a YouTube video last weekend that Mayweather had put pen to paper for the Paul fight.

"I've got some breaking news for you. Floyd Mayweather Jr is coming out of retirement and has just officially signed a contract to fight in an exhibition match against Logan Paul YouTube sensation Logan Paul," he said.

Fighting Floyd Mayweather will be the biggest challenge of Paul Logan's career considering the fact that he has only fought one professional fight in his career.

Previously, 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, even if not more than $1billion 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 $200million.

The former heavyweight champion 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.

Suggestions that Mayweather could come out of retirement to take on Adrian Broner were dismissed by the 'Money Man', who stated that he is not ready to end up like his late uncle Roger.
