The American has been retired for three years since beating Conor McGregor for a 50-fight unbeaten run. But rumours have emerged of another return from retirement for the boxer. And footage from his Instagram channel shows Mayweather is keeping himself in shape. In the clip, the 43-year-old is in the the Mayweather Gym in Las Vegas, USA. He is taking on the punching bag, donning a blue T-shirt and some red gloves. And the former boxer hits the bag with some light punches before landing a powerful right-hander. Mayweather then swings in with both hands before firing some short shots. The bag echoes from the punches, which are being fired in at pace by Mayweather. He yells out while punching before jogging lightly on his toes. Mayweather finishes the exercise with two big right-hand punches and a brutal combination. This footage was shared on the American’s Instagram channel, earning more than a million views in six hours. It comes as the 43-year-old made a decision about a rematch with McGregor after a difficult month. Mayweather suffered two family tragedies within eight days last month as ex-girlfriend Josie Harris, the mother of three of his children, passed away. And uncle Roger, the main main in his corner for the majority of his glittering career, died at the age of 58 last Wednesday. This has seen Mayweather decide that the proposed comeback will not take place in 2020. While the former boxer has also been linked with a UFC bout against reigning lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. It would see the Russian rake in around $100 million [£78 million] if the pair went head-to-head in the Octagon, with a fight speculated in the Middle East. The rumours emerged after Mayweather was spotted at a Los Angeles Clippers game with UFC chief Dana White.Tags: Conor McGregorFloyd MayweatherLas Vegas

North Korea prepares grand military parade on Olympics eve A North Korean delegation led by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s younger sister Kim Yo Jong (Centre) and president of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly Kim Yong Nam leave the Incheon International Airport in South Korea to attend the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games. – Reuters × diplomacy 2018 Winter Olympics The sister of the North Korean leader today became the first member of her family to visit South Korea since the 1950-53 Korean War as part of a high-level delegation attending the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.Arriving on her brother Kim Jong Un’s white private jet for a three-day visit, Kim Yo Jong and the country’s 90-year-old nominal head of state Kim Yong Nam are scheduled to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in tomorrow in a luncheon at Seoul’s presidential palace.Dressed in a black coat, carrying a black shoulder bag and hit with a barrage of camera flashes, Kim Yo Jong smiled as a group of South Korean officials, including Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, greeted her and the rest of the delegates at a meeting room at Incheon International Airport.The North Koreans, also including Choe Hwi, chairman of the country’s National Sports Guidance Committee, and Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the North’s agency that deals with inter- Korean affairs then moved down a floor on an escalator to board a high-speed train to Pyeongchang.StandoffMoon has been trying to use the games as an opportunity to revive meaningful communication with North Korea after a period of diplomatic stalemate and eventually pull it into talks over resolving the international standoff over its nuclear program.The last time a South Korean president invited North Korean officials to the presidential Blue House was in November 2007, when late liberal President Roh Moo-hyun, the political mentor of Moon, hosted then-North Korean premier Kim Yong Il for a luncheon following a meeting between the countries’ senior officials.Skeptics say North Korea, which is unlikely to give up its nukes under any deal, is just using the Olympics to poke holes at the US-led international sanctions against the country and buy more time to further advance its strategic weaponry.North’s message to SouthThe North Korean delegation’s arrival came a day after Kim Jong Un presided over a massive military parade in Pyongyang that was highlighted by the country’s developmental intercontinental ballistic missiles, which in three flight tests last year showed potential ability to reach deep into the US mainland when perfected.South Korean media have been speculating about whether Kim will send a personal message to Moon through his sister and, if so, whether it would include a proposal for a summit between the two leaders. Kim Yo Jong, believed to be around 30, is the first member of North Korea’s ruling family to visit the South since the Korean War.As first vice director of the Central Committee of North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party, Kim has been an increasingly prominent figure in North Korea’s leadership and is considered one of the few people who has earned her brother’s absolute trust.Analysts say the North’s decision to send her to the Olympics shows an ambition to break out from diplomatic isolation and pressure by improving relations with the South, which it could use as a bridge for approaching the United States.By sending a youthful, photogenic person who will undoubtedly attract international attention during the games, North Korea may also be trying to craft a fresher public image and defang any US effort to use the Olympics to highlight the North’s brutal human rights record. South Korea has yet to announce a confirmed schedule for the North Korean delegates aside of their participation in the opening ceremony and tomorrow’s luncheon with Moon.
