According to The Guardian, Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather appears to be training to come out of retirement. This time, however, it looks like he will turn his focus towards MMA rather than boxing where he has a record of 50 wins and 0 defeats.

Last August, Mayweather pocketed millions after he took on MMA superstar Conor McGregor in a boxing match and since then there have been rumors swirling around suggesting that the two could be set for a rematch, though this time in the Octagon.
“I’m gonna start soon,” Mayweather said. “We’ve been texting back and forth. We talked a couple times, so we gonna start working out real soon.”

During the boxing match last year, Mayweather made easy work of McGregor and critics have suggested that McGregor would make easy work of Mayweather if the two step into the Octagon.

Mayweather, however, feels that he could be a decent fighter and said: “I can wrestle. My wrestling game is not that bad… On a scale from one to 10, it’s probably a seven. And I think we can take it up to a nine if possible. Of course, my hand game, on a scale of one to 10, is 100. My kicking game, on a scale from one to 10, is probably a four.”

UFC President Dana White also confirmed last December that his company was talking to Mayweather. “We’re talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal,” he said. “It’s real. He was talking about [boxing] Conor McGregor. Was that real? Have you heard Floyd talk about many things that aren’t real? He usually tips his hand when he’s in the media, and then that s**t ends up happening.”

I am a reality TV junkie. My dream since I was a kid was to be on Big Brother, but until then you can catch me binge-watching episodes each summer.
