Floyd Mayweather hints at coming out of retirement at 43 for another exhibition fight after gruelling midnight workouts

FLOYD MAYWEATHER has dropped a hint he is coming out of retirement – again – with a cryptic Instagram post.

Money Mayweather said he is heading to Japan soon for a meeting and urged his followers to “stay tuned” for “something this year”.

The 43-year-old posted a short video of him bobbing and weaving alongside a caption that had fans’ tongues wagging.

He wrote: “Soon I’m going to hop on my jet to Tokyo, Japan for a meeting with my partners and Rizin for something this year 2020.

“Stay tuned @rizin_pr #TMT #mayweatherpromotions.”

Mayweather has not had an official bout since he beat Conor McGregor in 2017.

And he retired from boxing following his big money cross-sports fight against the former UFC champion.

Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, taking his record to 50-0.

However, the American did return to the ring again in an exhibition bout against Japanese kick boxer Tenshin Nasukawa on December 31, 2018.

Mayweather won by knockout in the first round in Japan, sending Nasukawa to the canvas an incredible three times before referee Kenny Bayless waved the fight off.

He bagged around £7million from the whitewash and could be looking for another pay day if his post is anything to go by.

The cryptic message comes after a series of midnight workouts.

Sparring partner Denis Douglas recently posted shots of them working out in the early hours of the morning.

And he told Sky Sports: “When we’re sleeping, he’s working

“Out of nowhere, he called me at 1am and told me: ‘Come to the gym, I want to spar’.

“I was knocked out asleep. But once he hit me up I told him, ‘I’ll be there right away’.

“I was honoured to get that call. Whether it was at 1am or 4am, I would always go.

“You have to. He is arguably the best ever and definitely the best of my generation.”

Douglas wrote in an Instagram post: “@floydmayweather hit me late last night for some sparring.

“I’m thinking I’m gonna get an old inactive Money Mayweather. But I got glimpses of pretty boy Floyd!!

“This old man is DIFFERENT 😂😂Learn so much every time I share the ring with him!

“#hardwork #dedication #AlwaysWorking #TeamMommasBoy #OldmanThoughtiWasntReady.”

Soon I’m going to hop on my jet to Tokyo, Japan for a meeting with my partners and Rizin for something this year 2020. Stay tuned @rizin_pr #TMT #mayweatherpromotions
