Jorge Masvidal Hints At Fighting Floyd Mayweather After 2020 Comeback Announcement

Jorge Masvidal Hints At Fighting Floyd Mayweather After 2020 Comeback Announcement

Jorge Masvidal is hinting towards a fight with Floyd Mayweather after the undefeated boxer revealed he will be coming out of retirement in 2020.

The 50-0 fighter made the announcement on Friday on Instagram and informed fans that he is working alongside UFC president Dana White.

TMZ say that 'Money' is slated to have two fights in 2020 - a potential rematch with Manny Pacquiao and then a bout with a UFC fighter.

That's where BMF title holder Masvidal comes in. The Cuban-American's social media activity has been particularly interesting and hints at a possible bout with Mayweather at 154 lbs - which would be a super welterweight contest inside the squared circle.

Masvidal is the second UFC fighter to ramp up talk of squaring off against Mayweather after former UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw expressed his interest.

There's no denying that there would be much more interest in Masvidal mixing it up with the former five-weight world champion, though the 35-year old is also desperate to fight Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

""I'm dead serious about trying to fight Canelo Alvarez, man," he said on the Ariel Helwani show earlier this month, as per Bloody Elbow.

"They'll give me a nice little change, I'd take my talents over there, and I'm going for the off button, man. I feel like I can shock the world."

"I think I can throw enough punches that I can attack Canelo and put him on his ass. I'd be going for the knockout, obviously. Nothing else. This is not to disrespect Canelo, because I think the dude is a beast. I think he's a stud.

"It would be an honour to get in the ring with him. But he did say some sh*t like no MMA fighter would be a challenge and this and that. I beg to differ."
