Floyd Mayweather says he is coming out of retirement for one more fight

At this point we're going to have to stop calling it 'retirement'.

The highest paid athlete of all time claims that he is coming back one last time, for one last fat pay-cheque.

Money Mayweather's last fight was against Ireland's own Conor McGregor (UFC fighter from Dublin, ever heard of him?), and he won with relative ease.

He also made a stupid amount of money while doing so.

Since then, McGregor and Mayweather have shared a couple of light jabs on social media, but not enough for us to assume that they'll ever fight again.

It seemed like Floyd was comfy in his retirement, but not anymore...

The 41-year-old took to his Instagram on Saturday to announce that he would be coming out of retirement to fight Manny Pacquaio, claiming that "another 9-figure payday is on the way".

The two fought already in 2015, where Mayweather won after a points decision.

The fight was heavily criticised by fans who felt both parties were too conservative in their approach.

Maybe the sequel will be different...
