In news that you certainly wouldn't expect on a Monday morning, 54 year old former heavyweight champion of the world Frank Bruno has revealed that he is making a return to the boxing ring. ________________________________________________________________________________ Speaking in a television appearance on the popular UK program This Morning, Bruno revealed the startling news this morning (no pun intended), saying to the presenters:…
The Pros and Cons of a Mayweather Comeback
Some are saying he won’t be able to resist going for 50-0 and will make a return to the ring, others are saying he’s sitting pretty on a big pile of cash somewhere in Las Vegas and will comfortably stay there, and out of a boxing ring. Lets take a look at some of the pros and cons to a Floyd Mayweather comeback.
Floyd has recently claimed he has turned down “nine figures” to return to the ring for a 50th fight and is only interested in Mayweather Promotions and the Money Team fighters from here on out.
If Mayweather returned and fought on his preferred September fight date, he would have only been out of the ring for a year, he always stays in tremendous shape and would have his usual team of Floyd Mayweather Sr and Roger Mayweather in his camp and corner.
Floyd hardly ever gets into a battle in the ring because of his excellent defence and foot movement, mixed with his style of hit and not be hit, so were as some fighters have battle scars and injuries, Floyd still looks young and fresh.
Mayweather seems to sell any fight he is in, against any opponent and this would add more dollars to his already huge wealth and because he isn’t a belt holder anymore and has no mandatory fighter to face, Floyd could pick pretty much anyone he wanted to face and people would pay to see history in the winning or losing of the fight.
The biggest pro for Money Mayweather of course would be he could take his record to 50-0 and that has never been accomplished in the history of the sport.
Floyd is now 39 years old and father time catches up with every man at some point in his life, and this could be Mayweathers time.
His legacy is all ready written in the history books but if he was to lose, could he himself and others still call him TBE (The Best Ever) or without that 0 on his record, would that put him down in the all time pound for pound list?
Who would Floyd pick to fight? He already has haters as well as admirers, but if he took a so call easy opponent, making that nine figure sum and extending his record in the process, the haters will come out in force more than ever.
In my opinion, Floyd Mayweather will come back in September because there are more pros than cons. I see him taking his record to 50-0 and wanting to cement his legacy even further.
The only question is, who will he fight?
I expect he will pick a first class opponent and win by decision, in usual Floyd-style.
But others will disagree and because of this, Floyd will sell his fight on returning to the ring because people pay to see him win, or others will pay to see him lose.
