FLOYD MAYWEATHER has fuelled the comeback rumours after being pictured sparring protege Devin Haney at 4am.
WBC lightweight champion Haney has been spending priceless hours in Mayweather's Las Vegas gym recently, working alongside the unbeaten legend.
And it appears they were both putting in the work in the early hours of the morning, as the 21-year-old uploaded pictures of the pair during separate sparring sessions.
Haney captioned the post: "4am work!"
Mayweather throughout his career trained in middle of the night and early morning as he felt it gave him a psychological edge over his opponents.
But the retired American has been forced to deny suggestions he is gearing up for another lucrative return to the ring – instead training purely to stay in shape.
Mayweather did confirm plans to turn his attention to becoming a trainer, having been inspired by the death of his uncle and former coach Roger.
The retired multimillionaire faced criticism for spending time tutoring Haney, with Mayweather's fighter Gervonta Davis even cancelling his proposed training camp in Las Vegas after seeing his promoter with one of his rivals.
But 'Money' defended the move, insisting Haney – due to move up to light-welterweight – is in no way a threat to super-featherweight Davis, who is in line to face Leo Santa Cruz this summer.
Mayweather told FightHype: “It’s obvious that I’m giving back to this world. It’s a black kid that asked for my advice and asked for my help. Haney don’t need to fight one more fight at 135, he’s going to 140.
“Gervonta Davis fights at what? He fights at 130.
"At the end of the day, I want the best for all these fighters. There’s no difference from my end. Everybody else support their own first. "
