Floyd Mayweather, the boxing legend, has confirmed his next bout against John Gotti III will take place on Saturday, February 10 – a day before Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.
Mayweather, 46, announced the event, which is titled ‘Unfinished Business’, on social media with the caption: “Kicking Off Super Bowl Weekend – Unfinished Business. See You Guys In Las Vegas. More Details Coming Soon!”
The venue and date are still to be confirmed by Mayweather’s team.
Since retiring from professional boxing in 2017, Mayweather has had seven exhibition fights.
He fought Gotti in June in Florida, but the bout was called off in the sixth round due to excessive trash-talking by referee Kenny Bayless.
The event soon devolved into pandemonium as a massive battle erupted amongst the fighters’ camps.
Gotti, 30, is the grandson of infamous Gambino crime family head John Gotti, who was once considered as America’s most powerful crime gang.
Before his first battle with Mayweather, Gotti won two out of two boxing contests after switching from MMA.
