Would you like to see Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao back in the ring?

Floyd Mayweather was ready to return to the ring for an exhibition bout in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on May 14, but the event was postponed the day before due to the death of the country's president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

He just lost his bid to become president of the Philippines and could also make a return. Is that good for him and boxing?
