Mayweather Eyeing $10 Million July Exhibition

Floyd Mayweather is reportedly set to earn another $80 million in the next year by taking part in four or five more exhibition fights following his "fight" with Tenshin Nasukawa last year.

Mayweather, who renewed his official retirement after defeating Conor McGregor in what was, for now at least, his last professional bout appears to have found another way to squeeze dollars out of the boxing world without having to put his undefeated record in peril, after telling TMZ that he plans to fight in a series of exhibitions this year.

He's got a taste for the easy money of exhibitions it would seem, and, in truth, could you blame him? However, the boxer has said that he will earn $10 million for his three-round fight, a insane sum for the world-class boxer. In exhibitions alone I'll make about $80m this year.

The boxer knocked the kickboxer to the ground three times before the fight was ended, making a bit of a farce of the whole thing.

The first, he says, will come in July and will be against a "Japanese boxer, a former boxer".

It is unclear who the July opponent would be, but Mayweather said he is Japanese and a former boxer.

According to TMZ Sports, Mayweather will earn roughly $80 million doing these exhibition fights. "I don't have to do the real thing, I am the real thing". I am the real thing!

If today's boxers don't intrigue you enough and you want some more Floyd Mayweather, you are in luck.

Recently after his young protege Gervonta "Tank" Davis won in the ring Mayweather also suggested that Davis will take place in an exhibition in the summer in Japan. He now works as a promoter for upcoming fighter Gervonta Davis - who Mayweather wants to fight Nasukawa in April in another exhibition - but he may yet have another bout of his own left in him.
