Five possible opponents for Floyd Mayweather after Logan Paul including Jake Paul, Conor McGregor and 50 Cent

FLOYD MAYWEATHER is once again counting his banknotes after his exhibition fight against YouTuber Logan Paul.

The retired pro boxer is believe to have earned around £72MILLION from the eight-rounder he described as ‘like a sparring session’.

Floyd Mayweather says he will not box again – but money talks

After the fight, The Money said that it was very likely to be his last ever bout in a boxing ring.

But with the millions that will constantly be on offer to see one of boxing’s greatest ever fights lace up the gloves, it would be no surprise to see him go at it again.

Here, SunSport takes a look at five potential future opponents should the 44-year-old make ANOTHER comeback.


Mayweather did actually offer Jake Paul ‘a real fight’ but warned the YouTuber would need to come down TWO STONE in weight to 154lb.

Before Mayweather’s Logan Paul fight, brother Jake put himself in line to face the boxing legend after stealing his hat at a press conference.

The social media star told SunSport he would fight Mayweather, but only in a professionally sanctioned contest, rather than an exhibition.

His demand appeared to be met, but he was told it would mean shedding over two stone to make it happen.

50 Cent has called out Floyd Mayweather for a celebrity boxing match to finally settle their feud.

The pair were friends for years but their relationship turned sour in 2012.

And after several taunts at the boxing legend, rapper 50 Cent has now issued a challenge inside the ring.

When asked which celeb he would want to take on in an interview with V-103’s The Morning Culture, he said: “I’d fight Floyd (Mayweather).”

Mayweather finally fought and beat Pacquiao in 2015 – but many thought it happened several years too late.

So the clamour for the pair to go at it a second time wouldn’t be too great.

Pacquiao, 42, is returning after more than two years out of the ring to take on the welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr, who is 11 years his junior, in August.

Mayweather poked fun at old rival Pacquiao’s bank account just before he pocketed over £70m for a hug-fest with Logan Paul.

De La Hoya has called out Mayweather for a ‘revenge fight’ as he plans his big comeback.

De La Hoya is poised to follow in Mike Tyson’s footsteps and return to the sport that saw him become a multi-weight world champ.

He has targetted July for his grand return – and fancies a shot at Mayweather down the line.

A shot at redemption is what De La Hoya seemingly wants most. He lost on a split decision to Mayweather in 2007.


Despite Mayweather doing all his talking in the ring when he stopped McGregor in their boxing fight, the UFC legend continues to angle for a rematch.

Undoubtedly this would be THE money fight – but McGregor is surely at a crossroads in his UFC career and needs to focus on that.

The 50-0 undefeated champ, 44, and Irish MMA star McGregor were in talks for a sensational billion dollar rematch, as revealed by SE earlier this year.

However, the fight was temporarily scuppered after Notorious, 32, was beaten by American Dustin Poirier in a shock KO defeat in January.
