Floyd Mayweather?s fight against Andre Berto (49-0) was supposed to be his farewell bout after 19 year illustrious career in the sport, but source has it that the undefeated pound-for-pound king may resurface in 2016 to take up at least one more fight.

For the fight to happen, it has to be against a top opponent given how disinterest the general public was in Mayweather?s last fight against Berto on September 12, 2015. According to statistics, Floyd?s fight with Berto was his lowest pay-per-view (PPV) since his fight with Carlos Baldomir in 2006.

According to our checks, the winner of the Miguel Cotto vs. Canelo Alvarez tops the bill. Cotto gave Mayweather tough time in 2012 whilst Canelo Alvarez came close in 2013 but the underlying factor is, both contenders lost against Floyd Mayweather.

For the pound-for-pound king Mayweather to say that HBO had made him an offer gives this coming back fight in 2016 more credence than just a mere rumour.

Rematch of Mayweather-Pacquiao May 2, 2015 is also a possibility but the difficulty here is getting the actors involve (Haymon to Bob Arum and in-between) to come on the same page again.

Other contenders worth considering in Mayweather?s possible 50th fight are; Danny Garcia, Amir Khan, Keith Thurman, Kell Brook, Gennady Golovkin.
