According to reports, Money Mayweather is close to securing a bout going down in Japan ahead of his Pac-Man rematch.
It looks like Floyd is adjusting course a bit … ’cause sources close to TBE tell us he’s actually eyeing 2 comeback fights … starting with a massive boxing event in Tokyo. Couple of interesting points here … we’re told Floyd hasn’t yet picked an opponent — and he ain’t just lookin’ at boxers — he’s also checking out kickboxers and MMA fighters. We’re told Conor McGregor’s name has not been mentioned. (TMZ)
Earlier this week, Floyd went to Twitter to confirm his intent on coming out of boxing retirement.

Last week, Floyd shocked fans by announcing plans to fight boxing rival Manny Pacquiao before 2019.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he’s coming out of retirement again to fight Manny Pacquiao for a second time in December. Mayweather posted a video on Instagram early Saturday that showed him and Pacquiao together, reportedly in Japan, jawing at each other over a possible second fight. (TIME)
