Floyd Mayweather is tipped to make a return this summer.

In an exhibition bout of sorts for quite a bit of money.

Fair play.

His professional boxing career days are well and truly over at this point however.

Talking about that career at a speaking engagement recently Mayweather touched on the best boxers he ever faced.

He revealed:

“The best fighter I ever fought was probably Manny Pacquiao. Because of his movement. He’s a hell of a fighter. I can see why he won so many fights. Why he’s going down as a future Hall of Famer is because of certain movements he made. But the roughest fighter I probably ever faced was a guy called Emanuel Augustus. He was just tough. Miguel Cotto was very, very physically strong. You’ve got different fighters. Different days you feel different ways. You may not feel very good certain days but you can go over there and look superb.”

Interesting stuff.

If you have not seen the Augustus fight from the early days of Mayweather’s professional career it is worth a viewing here:
