Report: Floyd Mayweather Files Applications for Five Different 50-0 Trademarks
Floyd Mayweather retired from boxing in 2015 with a 49-0 record. Now he is officially coming out of retirement to take on UFC superstar Conor McGregor, and apparently the reported nine-figure paycheck is not the only thing on his mind.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Floyd has already filed five different trademark applications for the term 50-0.

It is assumed that Floyd “Money” Mayweather will take home at least $100,000,000 from the upcoming “superfight.” However, it sounds like the real reason Mayweather wants to come out of retirement might just be to get that 50th win and surpass Rocky Marciano for the greatest boxing record of all time.
If Mayweather is just out to get that 50th win, setting up a fight with McGregor is a pretty ingenious way to do it. All the hype surrounding the fight will distract casual fans from the fact that Conor McGregor—who has zero pro boxing experience—is just a tomato can helping Mayweather reach a major milestone.
