Boxer Mayweather Jnr to end retirement

Retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jnr (R) says he will step back into the ring in 2020

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Junior says he is coming out of retirement.

The 42-year-old American has not fought since in August 2017 in the 50th fight and 50th win of his career.

That was over UFC star Conor McGregor, a bout fought under boxing rules.

A rematch, possibly under UFC rules, has long been touted, as have traditional ring returns against a number of opponents.

In an Instagram post, Mayweather - a five-weight world champion - simply said: "Coming out of retirement in 2020".

And hinting his claimed return would be something more than a boxing one, he posted another picture with UFC boss Dana White, who helped to promote the McGregor fight, saying the pair were "working together again".
