Floyd Mayweather says return will be for 'MORE than one fight' and calls comeback 'a limited edition boxing showcase'

FLOYD MAYWEATHER said he will return for 'MORE than one fight' and called his comeback 'a limited edition boxing showcase'.

Mayweather will headline an exhibition on February 20 in Dubai, just four days before his 45th birthday, and confirmed it will not be a one and done.

He said: "One fight? We may do more than one fight.

"We want to give the people some entertainment. So yes, it will be more than one fight."

The event will be staged on the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah's HELIPAD and comes just four days before the Mayweather's 45th birthday.

He announced: "February 20th, we haven't chosen an opponent yet but I look forward to it and hopefully we give you guys something to see."

Mayweather officially retired in 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 33, in a lucrative crossover bout.

But he has returned twice, both in exhibitions, starting with a one round demolition job over featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23.

More recently, in June he was taken the distance over eight rounds by YouTuber Logan Paul, 26, who weighed TWO STONE more.

Mayweather insisted afterwards his time in the boxing ring had come to an end – both in a professional and spectacle capacity.

But it appears the sport's richest ever fighter has once more had a change of heart, and is now planning on bringing several events to the Middle East.

Mayweather has before distanced himself from ever returning to traditional boxing and doubled down on valuing this as entrainment, opposed to sport.

He said: "Well, I don't like to call what I'm doing a fight. I like to call it a limited edition boxing showcase. Because it's bigger than just boxing."

Mayweather confirmed his return will be in front of a limited capacity, such is the unique setting of the exhibition.

He remarked: "It's going to be a very special crowd, not too many people.

"So, if you get the chance to come here, you must know, you're very, very special for this event."
