    Default Retired Boxer most likely to return in 2019

    Who do you think might change their mind for one last fight and come out of retirement in 2019?

    Andre Ward, Tony Bellew, Keith Thurman, Wlad?


    Haye

    Floyd to fight Manny.

    Love for Bellew to rematch Usyk at heavyweight and get out classed again.

    Wlad to take on Wilder

    Sadly it’s probably Floyd, assuming manny beats broner, no idea if he’d come back in the other case. I guess Ward is possible, but there likely isn’t a big enough financial incentive for him now. Only other names I can think of didn’t officially retire, but would be a lot more interesting. I know Rigo has a tune up shortly, but as he’s been out over a year and moved up too much last time, it’d be very interesting to see him back at featherweight, say.

    Floyd won’t come back, at least not in a real fight, but Dre might. He’s done contender, he’s done Creed, he’s probably free to come back.
    I reckon he’s finally starting to see the money he missed out on, and wants a piece of it.

    Did Jones retire? Isn't he fighting again?

    Floyd will be back, they will build either Pac or Broner, whoever wins.

    Of the ones mentioned, Ward.

    He retired relatively young and unscathed. Sure, he's got that "0" to protect.... but maybe the itch of not being in the ring will get to him and he'll come back against a carefully studied opponent.

    Apparently he is asking for crazy money to return, I doubt if he does it'll be against Usyk.

    Amir Khan, Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and Canelo Alvarez called out by former world champion Marcos Maidana in comeback announcement

    The overweight Argentine has been enjoying life out of the ring after two big-money fights against Floyd Mayweather in 2014

    Britain’s Amir Khan is among a list of fighters who have been called out by returning former world champion Marcos Maidana.

    The 35-year-old ex-WBA welterweight king quit the sport following his two mega fights with Floyd Mayweather in 2014, but has now declared he is coming out of retirement in a bizarre video.

    Maidana – currently vastly overweight – posed in boxing gloves in a public call-out to his old foe Mayweather for a trilogy match, before also naming Manny Pacquiao, Canelo Alvarez and Amir Khan as fighters on his hit list.

    It is as yet unclear just how serious his comebacking intentions are, but should the Argentine get back in the ring it will without doubt be a notable event.



    Khan defeated Maidana by close, but unanimous decision when they first met in a thrilling affair back in 2010.

    Maidana then rebuilt his career by defeating Adrien Broner and leapfrogged Khan in the race to secure a fight with Mayweather.

    He pushed the American close first time around, but was outclassed in their rematch which seemingly provided him with enough money never to fight again.

    Now however, it appears this may not be the case.

    I was expecting him to be heavier when it said “vastly”. He just looks average overweight, believe he was one of those guys who’d get that way out of camp when he was fighting. The trouble would be more his age and time out of the ring. His whole camp would likely be about getting down in weight and into shape, and if he needs money he’s probably not going to take a tune up and do the thing properly.
