Floyd Mayweather has been retired as a professional boxer for a little more than a year, but that appears to no longer be the case. The touted boxer announced some major personal news on his Instagram account early this morning.

Mayweather, the undefeated boxing champion, says he's coming out of retirement later this year. He'll be fighting Manny Pacquiao.

"I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year. Another 9 figure pay day on the way ," he wrote.

Mayweather included a video of an apparent spat with Pacquiao. Check it out:

OK then.

Mayweather had said after his fight with Conor McGregor that he would no longer be stepping foot inside the ring. That mindset has changed, obviously.

“You won’t see me in the ring no more,” Mayweather said following his win that night in 2017. “Any guy that’s calling me out? Forget it. I’m OK. I had a great career. I had a tremendous career.

“I did walk away from this sport before. Very comfortable. I didn’t have to come back. But we do foolish things sometimes. All of us do foolish things. But I’m not a damn fool. If I see an opportunity to make $300-, $350 million in 36 minutes, why not? I had to do it. But this is the last one. You guys have my word.”
