But he has boxed in three exhibition bouts since and returns over the weekend in Japan against MMA star Mikuru Asakura, 30.

Mayweather, 45, is then in talks with YouTuber Deji, 25, for a November exhibition in Dubai.

And it could set him up for a rematch with McGregor, where he would be willing to put his 50-0 record on the line – for a guaranteed $100m (£90m).

Mayweather told TMZ Sports: “If the price is right. Of course, they already talked to me about the number that I’m going to receive.

“Then after that in November I’ve got another exhibition in Dubai at the Coca-Cola Arena.

“And then hopefully me and Conor McGregor can lock up again in 2023, in a real fight actually.”
