- Floyd Mayweather has been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame
- “Money” is set for another exhibition match in December
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has added another glitter to his already shining boxing career as he got inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame on Saturday. On Monday, he’ll be business as usual and will reportedly announce his next exhibition match.
A special moment
Mayweather couldn’t help but cry as he receives one of the most prestigious accolade in the sport. Laila Ali, daughter of the late Muhammad Ali, also took the stage to comfort her fellow unbeaten boxing legend.
The 45-year-old took to Instagram his thoughts about the “highest honor” a boxer can receive and urged his family and friends to come and join him savor the special moment.
“I am truly honored to be receiving the highest honor I can receive as a boxer,” he wrote. “I will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. I would love for my family, friends, associates, and fans to come join me during this once in a lifetime Hall of Fame induction weekend in Canastota, NY. The events begin June 9th through June 12th.”
Ali and Mayweather were among the boxing all-time greats who got inducted in the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
One more time
Less than a month after beating Don Moore at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, Mayweather is back at it again as he is set to make his return to Japan for another exhibition match.
“Money” stayed true to his word, having previously revealed in Abu Dhabi that he will be back inside the ring in no time for another exhibition match. However, Mayweather will not be in the Middle East this time around as he is reportedly traveling to Japan to become part of a Rizin event happening in December.
It can be recalled that “Money” had already knocked out Tenshin Nasukawa in a Rizin exhibition match back in 2018. Though Rizin will be hosting his next bout, Mayweather has yet to name his opponent and will reportedly reveal further details on Monday.

As things stand, Manny Pacquiao’s team has already expressed their interest for an exhibition showdown with Mayweather. YouTuber-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul, meanwhile, is also not ruling it out.
