KSI & Paul recently competed in their highly anticipated rematch which saw KSI emerge victorious.

Betfair have listed a variety of other odds on other competitors the 42-year-old could face.

The fight which is most likely to happen is a rematch with Manny Pacquiao who is listed as favourite with 6/4 odds.

The duo faced off in 2015 in a fight that was billed as 'Fight of the Century' which Mayweather went on to win.

A rematch has been rumoured for years but Mayweather's return to action could see a sequel to one of boxing's biggest ever fights.

The former five weight world champion hasn't had a competitive fight since beating Conor McGregor in 2017.

He posted a picture on Instagram with the caption 'Coming out of retirement in 2020' confirming his return to action.

It isn't confirmed whether he will return to boxing though, as there's every chance he could be ready to begin an MMA career.

During the build up to the fight against McGregor there was talk that Mayweather could move across to UFC for the rematch.

In a picture sat with UFC president Dana White he teased the idea of moving over to the octagon for his return.

Betfair have this avenue covered by offering 50/1 odds on a fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The Russian is one of the deadliest fighters in the UFC so it would be interesting to see him match up with Mayweather.

A rematch with McGregor also isn't out of the question.

The Irishman is set to return to the UFC early next year and another fight with Mayweather could be one of the biggest draws in combat sport history.

Mayweather spoke of 'building his brand' in the UFC after he defeated McGregor two years ago so it is possible he could face McGregor in the octagon.

Canelo Alvarez is another earmarked opponent with 20/1 odds.

The Mexican fighter recently discussed how a rematch with Mayweather would go after his defeat in 2013.

He suggested that the fight would go in his favour.

Per Daily Star, he said:

"I think he's good too but I'm a different fighter now. Maybe [it would be a] different fight."

Who do you think Mayweather will face in his return fight?
