article imageMayweather starts gym work, spars with Thomas Dulorme

Retired boxing great Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has dismissed the idea of a possible ring return after staying retired for over a year but speculations continue on his comeback fight against Manny Pacquiao which could happen as early as May 2017.
In a recent article on Boxing Scene, Mayweather was reportedly seen with Puerto Rican boxer and title challenger Thomas Dulorme at the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"Mayweather Jr., who retired last September from the sport, was recently sparring with Thomas Dulorme at the Mayweather Boxing Club. Reportedly he looked very good," boxingscene.com writes.
Mayweather has repeatedly denied he is coming back to face Manny Pacquiao in a rematch. But the world's highest-paid athlete has fueled speculations that he is considering a second fight against Pacquiao after he was seen watching the Pacquiao-Vargas fight last Nov. 5 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada reportedly on Pacquia's invitation.
Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum believes the Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch has a 75 percent chance of happening in early or latter past of next year. Mayweather denied Arum's claim advising fans not to believe news of his return unless it comes directly from his mouth.
Mayweather's father, who acts as his trainer, said his son takes training seriously whenever he prepares for a fight. He also downplayed Pacquiao's domination of Vargas in their Nov. 5 fight.
"Believe anything that you want to believe, but sh*t will probably be worse this time than it was the last time. What I seen [against Vargas] was nothing. That was nothing," Floyd Sr. said.
"What you seen down there was nothing compared to a fight. For a fight Floyd will be running every day, training every day, sparring every day, jumping rope every day. He would be doing all these things every day. When Floyd gets in shape, Floyd gets in shape," Floyd Sr. added.
Meanwhile, Pacquiao is now working on his legislative agenda in the Philippine senate where he has been elected last May to a full six-year term.
