Will Mayweather fight Manny Pacquiao
This is the question boxing fans everywhere are secretly wondering about. Despite both being well past their prime, they are still boxing's two biggest superstars. And it is hard to think of a reason why a sequel to the boxing's richest bout wouldn't happen.
Mayweather's fight odds currently have him as a significant favourite (1.385) while Pacquiao's odds are a bigger underdog (3.00) than he was in their original bout. When they both first tangled, Mayweather defeated Pacquiao handily, winning a unanimous decision.
But at the time, Pacquiao had an injured shoulder and wasn't his usual fiery self. If this is the case, Pacquiao can give Mayweather a better fight if he was healthier.
At the moment, there is no official news on this fight happening although it has been built up. Pacquiao recently defeated Adrien Broner, one of Mayweather's cronies. Despite promoters trying to hype up the potential rematch, Mayweather seemed indifferent to the idea.
Bet365 has more Mayweather odds including the actual fight itself and the possibility of the fight.
Vegas odds have Mayweather as a massive 1.04 favourite if tangles with the Russian wrestler who has a comeback of 10.00 on the betting lines. While Nurmagomedov might seem like a fish out of the water as a grappler boxing with the greatest boxer of his era, don't count him out entirely.
Mayweather was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan to a family of boxers. His father is Floyd Mayweather Sr., a former welterweight contender who fought Sugar Ray Leonard. His uncle, Roger Mayweather was a former two-time world champion who fought legends Julio Cesar Chavez and Pernell Whitaker.
As made notorious by his former manager, 50 Cent, Mayweather has reading problems. Mayweather, who dropped out of high school to take care of his mother, is illiterate and there are many videos on the Internet that show his difficulty reading.
As boxing's richest athlete, Mayweather earns as much as $300 million in one year alone. He earns most of his dough through his fights.
Mayweather started becoming a boxing draw after his fight with Arturo Gatti in 2005. He started earning significant amounts starting with his match with De La Hoya in 2007 where he earned upwards of $25 million.
In his fights with McGregor, Pacquioa, and Canelo, Mayweather earned $100 million, $120 million, and $41.5 million respectively as base pay.
Although his fights have been his main source of income, Mayweather also gets significant cash through broadcasting deals like the $170 million deal he inked with Showtime in 2013.
Endorsements are another money-maker for Mayweather. Some reports suggest he can earn up to $100 million a year with his endorsements.
Lastly, Mayweather also has his own company, Mayweather Promotions, which is a boxing promotion but also organizes live entertainment events.
Depending where you look, Mayweather's net worth is estimated between $500 million to $1 billion.
Although he has four children (two sons and two daughters), Mayweather has never been married. He has dated three women primarily: Josie Harris, Melissa Brim, and Shantel Jackson.
Harris was Mayweather's high school sweetheart and longtime girlfriend from 1993 to 2007. She is the mother of three of his children. They were engaged in 2005 though Mayweather's alleged abusive demeanour cancelled any plans for a wedding.
Brim was Mayweather's other girlfriend and reportedly dated him somewhere from 1998 to 2012. But like Harris, Mayweather was abusive to her and the two never even got engaged.
Jackson was Mayweather's third girlfriend and the second to whom he was engaged. They dated in 2006 but broke up for, once again, the abusive nature of Mayweather.
Outside these three women, Mayweather has had several flings with the likes of Jessica Burciaga, a former Playboy Playmate of the Year, and Abi Clarke, a reality TV star.

Floyd Mayweather's historical fights
Mayweather has been the king of boxing for well over a decade and he has crafted countless masterpieces in the ring. However, there is a handful that stands out and best exemplifies the style and grace of Mayweather:
Mayweather vs McGregor
For Mayweather's final fight, he took on mixed martial artist and two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor in "The Money Fight." Preceded by outrageous fanfare and ludicrous amounts of hype, Mayweather justified all of this when he put on one of his most exciting matches.

Mayweather vs Canelo
Even though the young hungry lion ultimately seizes the kingdom from the old one, it wasn't the case in this one. Despite significant hype and an unbeaten 42-0 record behind him, Canelo Alvarez was just another scalp.

"To be the man, you've got to beat the man." And this is exactly what Mayweather did in the biggest fight of his career. Matched against six-division world champion Oscar De La Hoya, Mayweather weathered the Mexican legend's early onslaught and outboxed him through the majority of the fight.
Mayweather won a split decision and broke the PPV record at the time.
Mayweather vs Gatti
A star was born when Mayweather headlined his first PPV bout against fan favourite. Despite having 33 victories and being a significant favourite over Gatti, many thought Mayweather would finally be tested. Gatti was renowned for his extremely aggressive style.
But Mayweather passed this test with flying colours schooling the grizzled veteran for six rounds until the referee forcibly stopped the fight.
