Floyd Mayweather Announces He'll Come Out of Retirement in 2020 and Dana White is Involved

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is ready to put back on his gloves, but boxing fans may want to hold off on celebrating.

Mayweather announced he will make a comeback in 2020, and it appears UFC President Dana White is helping him make his grand return here.

Coming out of retirement in 2020

A post shared by Floyd Mayweather (@floydmayweather) on

Mayweather, 42, announced his return in a simple manner via Instagram, though the photo says it all.

The veteran boxer, a champion of titles ranging from that of super featherweight to super light middleweight, also announced White and him are involved in bringing together something exciting for 2020.

Mayweather's last fight was a 10-round victory via technical knockout over Conor McGregor in the latter's boxing debut in 2017. With the win, Mayweather surpassed Rocky Marciano's 49-0 record, and became only the third fighter to be undefeated after 50 or more matches.

Since McGregor, who has apparently also un-retired, was willing to jump from the UFC, we'll see if Mayweather's and White's plans involve him.

The Mayweather fight was McGregor's only boxing match so far, while the Irishman's last fight of any kind was his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in UFC 229, notoriously followed by a post-fight altercation between multiple members of each fighter's camp.
