Time will tell if the great Mayweather will return or not for a 50th fight, but you’d have to think his competitive edge will tempt him back for one final hurrah to surpass the great Rocky Marciano’s record, of which he is currently tied with (49-0).
That, in terms of legacy, and also potentially another massive pay day too of course. The problem would lay in trying to find a suitable opponent out there that would draw massive interest from the public, in and around his weight class.
Time will tell.
