Mayweather, 45, retired from competitive boxing in 2017 after defeating UFC fighter Conor McGregor to improve to 50-0, but he has since made tens of millions of dollars through entertaining exhibition fights. Before taking on YouTuber Logan Paul last year and his former sparring partner Don Moore in May, “Money” knocked out Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa a year after his retirement.
