The retired boxing icon has been out of the game professionally since 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor in ten rounds.

But exhibition comeback bouts have kept the undefeated multimillionaire in the gym and continuing to enhance his wealth.

The first came against Japanese featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, on New Year’s Eve in 2018.

Then two years later American vlogger Logan Paul, 26, used his TWO STONE advanatage to take Mayweather the distance. ​

The former five-weight world champ is now closing out talks with Money Kicks, who has just ONE YEAR and two celebrity bouts worth of boxing experience.

But coach Tucker admitted he is hopeful Mayweather will return for real and defend his unbroken 50-0 record.

He told SunSport: “I’m also optimistic we may see Floyd fight one day.

“I’m not giving up any secrets or anything, I’m just hopeful, I feel it.

“Nothing from anything he’s said, just from the way he looks in the gym and how easy it is for him to beat people up in sparring.

“And I mean guys who could become a world champion in the next year or two.

“So yeah, I’m very optimistic we’ll see him in the ring one more time and put his unbeaten, flawless record on the line.”
