Mayweather’s Coming Back

The man is coming back. It’s not if, it’s when. He’s sending signals, last week, this week.

Floyd Mayweather’s “retirement” won’t last the year, I don’t think…

In case you missed it, “Money” hit England for a talking tour. He booked some dates for the public to hear him talk and while there, met up with the charming and talented trunk maker Sophie Whittam.

She crafted some blingy and braggy shorts for the “ex” hitter who seemed pleased to receive them.

I will wear them for my 50th fight, he said.

“Jokingly.”

Uh huh.

Many a truth is said in jest.

It’s not a matter of if, it’s when. It’s what we have all said from the get go. This “retirement” has always from second one looked like media manipulation from the savvy marketer Mayweather.

Do you agree, readers?

Or do some of you agree with Bernard Hopkins, who thinks Floyd stays sidelined?

Holler at us; when and where and who does Floyd fight next?
