Is Floyd Mayweather really done for good? Well, he’s certainly insisted as much over the past few months. But if that’s the case, why has Mayweather just posted a couple videos of himself in the gym, training — with a groin protector and all?

In the lead-up to the Conor McGregor fight over the summer, and afterwards, Floyd insisted publicly that he’s made promises that he would never fight again. Then again, Floyd has announced his retirement a few times in the past to only return to the ring later.

And one thing we know about Floyd is that he’s very aware of his public persona and how he markets himself — so basically everything he has posted on his social media accounts is designed to project some kind of message. Therefore these most recent postings of him training are obviously going to raise some eyebrows as to what Floyd’s intentions are, and understandably so.

Sure, this could simply be for attention, but it might also be a signal that he’s still not ready to walk away from the limelight and being the biggest name in boxing.
