Mayweather announced yesterday that he would be coming out of retirement next year and is set to embark on a project with UFC president Dana White.
The name of his latest opponent has not yet been revealed, but we can safely say that it won't be Khabib after Abdelaziz's revelations on Twitter.
Khabib's manager wrote: "This was originally planned but the big Dady of combat sport today
@danawhite make @floydmayweather hide for a lil bit . 3 of us knew what happened but to be honest I’m glad to see @danawhite with @floydmayweather finally got a good promoter to promote his fights."
