Let’s fuel some nonsense fire! Floyd Mayweather has arrived at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, just in time to catch tonight’s main event between Manny Pacquiao and Jessie Vargas.

Mayweather, who hasn’t fought since beating Andre Berto in September 2015, has said repeatedly that he’s retired, but there has remained speculation that he could fight again, and a rematch with Manny Pacquiao would be the highest paying possible fight.

Floyd is also the former promoter of Vargas, and has remained friendly with him over the years, at least according to Timothy Bradley Jr, who said they’re “good friends” on the commentary for the pay-per-view.

Is Mayweather here to stir the pot, or just here to watch a fight? And furthermore, do you care? I don’t, really, to be completely honest, but this is information and it made me laugh at least. Also worth noting he was booed when he showed up.
