Former five division champion Floyd Mayweather, 43-years-old, is already seeking to stage more fights past his upcoming exhibition bout with Youtube superstar Logan Paul.
Mayweather retired from boxing in August of 2017 with an ideal record of fifty-0, after stopping UFC superstar Conor McGregor in ten rounds on the T-cellular area in Las Vegas.
He back to the ring in December 2018, in an exhibition bout, when he traveled over to Japan and destroyed japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in one round.
The exhibition bout with Paul, 25-years-old, will take location on February twentieth – on pay-per-view.
The event is being backed with the aid of Fanmio, an organization that connects lovers with their favorite celebrities.
Fanmio’s company move is likely influenced with the aid of the Triller app, which financially backed remaining month’s pay-per-view exhibition between boxing legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones. The Tyson-Jones PPV become a large fiscal success, with over 1.5 million purchases.
Mayweather is not any stranger to chasing down lucrative opportunities. he is drawn to staging greater high profile exhibitions.
“I can not talk for Floyd’s future but i will tell you we wish to work together beyond this combat. So, there may be future fights past this one but it’s too early to inform for certain. we have lots to bring to the desk and the activity of boxing. but, at the conclusion of the day his future should be decided with the aid of him,” Solomon Engel, Founder and CEO of Fanmio, to The solar.
“Floyd’s very excited for the battle [with Paul]. He sees some massive alternatives right here, and i do not need to communicate for him but I suppose we all believe this may well be a extremely ancient combat and a couple of different tiers. any one that Floyd faces will carry loads of eyeballs and a lot of interest.
“There are certainly different expertise opponents however I don’t want to say names now. I consider it something that requires further conversations with Floyd and those parties earlier than we are able to see no matter if these bouts can happen.
“Fanmio is a brand new division of boxing. we’re taking this very severely and we’re already working via other basically unique hobbies. There are certainly other massive opponents that we’re in discussions with, placing fights collectively for confidently subsequent 12 months. we are in reality taking the more untraditional method, that means we are trying to create probably the most entertaining fights – that would generate within the hundreds of thousands of PPVs. we now have a handful of very unique fights to return.”
