Is Mayweather Coming out of Retirement for Fight Against Crawford??

Over the weekend, a rising star in boxing emerged as the best fighter in the world. Fans immediately started speculating if Terence Crawford could have defeated the legendary Floyd Mayweather and put an end to his undefeated 50-0 record. Crawford’s impressive victory over long-time rival Errol Spence Jr. in their highly-anticipated undisputed welterweight title clash, where he claimed all four belts in the division, fueled these discussions.

Although Mayweather retired six years ago and is now 46 years old, fans engaged in fantasy fight hypotheticals to ponder the outcome of a bout between Crawford and Mayweather. However, trainer Calvin Ford, who works with Gervonta Davis, reminded everyone of Mayweather’s previous statement. Mayweather once mentioned that he would consider coming out of retirement if Crawford defeated Spence.

“The question is, is Floyd going to come out of retirement and fight Crawford? I remember a statement where he said that if Terence beat Spence, then he would come out of retirement.”

“That’s a good one because you’ve got the old great against the new great. The pay-per-views would be stupid!”

The potential matchup between the old legend and the new superstar is tantalizing, and pay-per-view numbers would likely be off the charts. Even two-division world champion, Carl Frampton, chimed in during the live broadcast of the Spence-Crawford fight, predicting that a prime Terence Crawford would have the upper hand against a prime Floyd Mayweather in a welterweight bout.

Despite the rumors, Mayweather has been actively participating in exhibition bouts, having fought in seven of them since retiring from professional boxing. Four of those exhibitions took place in the last twelve months.

Speculation will continue to swirl about whether the five-division world champion could handle Crawford, but the big question remains: would Mayweather be willing to risk his flawless 50-0 record at this stage of his career? It might all come down to whether the financial incentives are too appealing to resist.
