The timing of the statement seems freaky after he told Reuters earlier this week he was done with the "very brutal sport" of boxing. He continued: "You have got to know when to hang it up".
Mayweather, 44, last fought on an exhibition match against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa for Rizin 14, a Japan-based mixed martial arts promotion. "I had a great career". Mayweather took to Instagram on Thursday night to post a photo of himself with UFC president Dana White sitting courtside together at the Clippers-Boston Celtics game November 20 at Staples Center. Before that, it was an August 2017 match against UFC star Conor McGregor that moved his career record to 50-0 where Mayweather made around $250 million.
The undefeated boxer will say one thing and then tell the media and press another thing and claim he never said that at the same time.
Mayweather spoke of "building his brand" in the UFC after he defeated McGregor two years ago so it is possible he could face McGregor in the octagon.
A lot of people online are making guesses about who Mayweather will choose to fight next if he really is coming out.

He also stated that if they did fight, he would make "between $110 and $200 million" which would be almost $100 million more than he made during his fight against McGregor.
The social media posts comes just days after Mayweather confirmed in an interview with Rory Carroll of Reuter that he was retired.
