To be or not to be; that seems to be the question on many a mind within the boxing community concerning former pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr.
2016 is nearing its end and according to many of the wise and informed voices in boxing fandom, the year has been somewhat disappointing.
In the boxing universe, not all promoters, managers, trainers and fighters get along...the paying customers often prefer it that way.
It was reported last Friday, October 14, that former pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. was back in the gym, sparring publicly for the first time since announcing his retirement in September of 2015.
Although the sport of boxing is slowly but surely moving on without Floyd Mayweather, one can't help but wonder if Floyd will be content seeing someone like Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin bask the sport's limelight while becoming the pastime's primary ambassador.
It's official...a match-up between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin has become the hottest and most talked about pairing within the boxing community.
Without a clear, and definitive superstar on the sport's horizon, many fans are wondering whether or not Floyd Jr. will return to the ring and reclaim his throne atop boxing's elite.
In May 2004, Floyd Mayweather made quite a statement by impressively taking apart top contender and former belt holder DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley, live on HBO.
