Boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather Jnr. will make another sensational comeback into combat sports as he could make his debut in Mixed Martial Art (MMA).

Confirming the latest update via a tweet, talkSPORT boxing editor, Michael Benson tweeted:

“Floyd Mayweather will return to the ring for a fight at Tokyo Dome on Feb 28th.

“Details scarce, but Floyd called into a presser to announce he would compete on same show as new MMA event ‘MEGA 2021’.”

The retired American boxer was initially set to return to boxing this year in Asia as reported by SunSport, but the impact of the coronavirus pandemic hampered the fighter’s return to the ring.

Nevertheless, Floyd Mayweather has announced to his 24 million Instagram followers that he will come out of retirement once more to fight in Tokyo.

In a recent post, he said:

“Tokyo, Japan. I am coming back in 2021. “I know the Olympics is in Japan in 2021 but me, and my team will be doing something big in Tokyo Dome.

 “Trust line, I want to say thank you for treating me good and treating my team good. Japan, I am on my way.”

Mayweather remains undefeated, winning all of his 50 professional boxing. He maintained his record against UFC star, Conor McGregor three years ago and beat kickboxer, Tenshin Nasukawa a year later in an exhibition match held in Tokyo.
