Floyd Mayweather posted on Instagram on Thursday night to confirm he will be coming out of retirement next year.

Mayweather, 42, posted on Instagram a photo of himself in the shorts he fought Canelo Alvarez in, writing: “Coming out of retirement in 2020.”

The post came the day after he was spotted with UFC president Dana White at an NBA game in Los Angeles.

Mayweather and White both shared the image on Instagram, with the boxer saying: “Dana White and I are working together again to bring the world another spectacular event in 2020.”

The former undefeated world champion has been retired on and off since 2015, with his last meaningful fight coming against Andre Berto.

Since then, he has ventured into the ring twice, both for lucrative paydays.

In 2017, he took on UFC megastar Conor McGregor in a fight many considered to be a farce, winning the bout by 10th-round stoppage.

Then, on December 31st 2018, he faced Japanese MMA sensation Tension Nasakuwa.

Mayweather beat the kick boxer, who had never boxed professionally, in the first round.

The 50-0 veteran destroyed 21-year-old Nasakuwa, before seemingly hanging up his gloves again.

But now, he appears to be coming back, just hours before insisting he would stay retired.

Earlier on Thursday, ESPN reported that Mayweather had decided against ever stepping foot inside the ring again, citing his health as the main reason.
