Boxing great Floyd Mayweather is slated to return to the ring this summer for a rematch against John Gotti III – the grandson of the late mob boss.

The 47-year-old first faced Gotti III back in June 2023, with the fight ending in chaos after a brawl broke out when people stormed the ring.

They were initially slated to meet again on Super Bowl weekend in Las Vegas but now DAZN have announced the fight will be held in Mexico on August 24.

‘#UnfinishedBusiness August 24th rematch in Mexico City. This is something you don’t want to miss!!’ Mayweather wrote on Instagram alongside the fight poster.

The 47-year-old enjoyed a phenomenal career in professional boxing, winning all 50 of his fights between 1996 and 2017.

That culminated in a money-spinning crossover fight against UFC star Conor McGregor and the American has since had a number of exhibition bouts around the world.

He has fought in Japan and London before facing Gotti III in Florida last June. Gotti is the grandson of former New York crime boss John Gotti.

‘The Teflon Don’ was the boss of the Gambino crime family. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1992 after being convicted of a string of offenses including five murders. He died in 2002 following a battle with cancer.

Mayweather’s first fight with Gotti III was declared a no contest after referee Kenny Bayliss stopped the action in round six due to ‘excessive trash talking’.

But Gotti then forced his way past the official and continued throwing punches at Mayweather.

Following the brawl Gotti did not stop taking shots at Mayweather. He took to Instagram to post: ‘Punk b***h @Floyd Mayweather. You my enemy for life.’
