Floyd Mayweather Jr announces he will come out of retirement in 2020

Floyd Mayweather Jr has said he is coming out of retirement.

The 42-year-old American has not fought since the 50th fight and 50th win of his career in August 2017.

That was over UFC star Conor McGregor, a bout fought under boxing rules.

A rematch, possibly under UFC rules, has long been touted, as have traditional ring returns against a number of opponents.

In an Instagram post, Mayweather – a five-weight world champion – simply said: “Coming out of retirement in 2020”.
