Floyd Mayweather open to future fights in comeback after Logan Paul exhibition as talks 'have absolutely taken place'

FLOYD MAYWEATHER could be set for more fights after facing Logan Paul with talks having already 'absolutely taken place'.

The boxing legend makes his return to the ring four years after officially retiring in a pay-per-view exhibition with YouTuber Paul.


He hung the gloves up as a professional after beating ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 32, in ten rounds.

But he made a brief cameo in Japan a year later, wiping out featherweight kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa in a similar spectacle to Sunday's headliner.

Website Fanmio, which offers fans the chance to receive personal messages from their heroes, tempted Mayweather back for his unthinkable exhibition with Paul.

And it appears their partnership with the 50-0 superstar could stretch beyond with bizarre June 6 bout, with potential other fights having already been discussed.

Fanmio founder and CEO Solomon Engel told SunSport: "They have absolutely taken place, I can't comment on any of them now, but we've definitely had those conversations.

"We've had those conversations for a while and we're still talking about certain things, we'll see what the future holds but we're very excited for this.

"And, we do think we have a bright future together working together. I'm confident there's a future, but I can't speak for them.

"Only time will tell if there's future fights for Floyd."

Mayweather initially featured on Fanmio to offer his supporters a range of experiences, from a video call to signed memorabilia.

Talk then progressed to working together on a boxing event, which would see the American great lace up the gloves once more.

Around the same time, Fanmio had started a relationship with Paul, who has boxed only TWICE before.

The first was a white collar bout with online rival KSI, 27, in 2018, which ended in a draw before they turned pro a year later.

Paul, 26, was then beaten by scrappy split-decision, with a two point deduction costing him the result.

Still with over 25.5million social media followers and 23m YouTube subscribers, despite the losing record his stock was just as high as ever.


And with the internet sensation's new-found passion for boxing, it gave Engel the idea to pit him against one of the sport's finest ever fighters.

"Floyd and I were talking about doing something, some sort of exhibition and just having conversations," Engel said.

"Once I got conversations with Logan, one thing led to another. It was a lot of work for me and my team. 

"It was a long lasting relationship with Floyd, a lot of work to convince Floyd and show him this was a great opportunity. 

"We worked on that for a while and finally after a lot of time and back and forth we were able to make it happen."
