The boxing legend has had four exhibition bout since officially retiring in 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor.

That has taken him around the Far East, America and now Middle East – but the UK could be next.

Mayweather, 45, revealed, alongside his promotional partner Keane Anis and Global Titans, that talks are already underway.

He said: “What’s so great about this fight is, we’re able to come together.

“And actually, Keane from FrontRow as well as Global Titans, he spoke to me and what is it February?

“February we’re looking forward to coming here and putting on an exhibition for the fans in the UK.

“Because I never got to come over here and actually fight here when I was actively fighting.

“Hopefully, in February we can come over here and do an exhibition if it’s possible.”


Mayweather’s most recent exhibition was against MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura, which he won in two rounds in September.

That came after facing featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, YouTuber Logan Paul and ex-sparring partner Don Moore.

But he returns at the Coca-Cola Arena next weekend against Deji, 25, who in August claimed his only win in four fights.
