"So, there may be future fights beyond this one, but it's too early to tell for sure. We have a lot to bring to the table and the sport of boxing.

"But, at the end of the day, his future will be determined by him."

Engel then added: "Fanmio is a new division of boxing. We are taking this very seriously. We are already working through other really exciting events.

"There are undoubtedly other big fighters that we are in discussions with, putting fights together for hopefully next year.

"We are definitely taking the more untraditional approach. It means we are trying to create the most exciting fights that would generate millions of PPVs.

"We have a handful of very exciting fights to come."

Mayweather's next fight will be against YouTuber Logan Paul on February 20 in a contest that has already attracted controversy.

Despite many questioning if the fight will be competitive at all, Engel insists knockouts will be in play.

"This is a real fight. And whoever wins, wins," he told The Sun.

"Certainly there could be a knockout, yes.

"I think it will be a very competitive fight. And to be clear, we have Floyd who is the best fighter, and Logan who is a new fighter.

"But, Logan does have some size difference, he's many inches taller, many pounds heavier and when you look at size and how that could affect the match, there's really no telling what the outcome could be.

"I do think that it will be competitive because Floyd has an incredible amount of skill and he's going to bring that to the table and Logan has size.

"It's like the David vs Goliath story - and we all know the outcome of that. But we don't know what the outcome will be here."
