FLOYD MAYWEATHER is raking in the big bucks on the exhibition scene – five years after his retirement from professional boxing.
The former five-weight world champion has taken part in lucrative exhibitions with Tenshin Nasukawa, Logan Paul, Don Moore and Mikuru Asakura.
Money will continue the exhibition portion of his career this weekend against YouTube sensation Deji – the brother of social media phenom KSI.
But attention has already turned to who the boxing great will face after his Dubai dust-up with Deji.
And SunSport is on hand with five potential opponents for Money in 2023.

Mayweather closed out his Hall-of-Fame career with a tenth-round TKO victory over the UFC superstar in Las Vegas five years ago.
But talks over a lucrative rematch between the pair have rumbled on ever since – with fresh negotiations taking place earlier this year.
MMA legend McGregor recently shut down the prospect of sharing the ring with the former pound-for-pound king again.
Although he'd likely jump at the opportunity to avenge the loss once his UFC contract comes to an end.

Like Mayweather, former eight-weight world champion Pacquiao is currently competing in the exhibition scene.
The Filipino, who retired from professional boxing last September, is gearing up for a showdown with South Korean martial artist DK Yoo on December 11.
Revenge has been on Pacman's mind ever since he lost the 2015 'Fight of the Century' with Mayweather in Las Vegas.
And he could very well get it next year if Mayweather were to agree to what would be one of the most-viewed exhibitions of all time.
British boxing legend Hatton returns to the ring this weekend to take on Mexican great Marco Antonio Barerra in an eight-rounder in Manchester.
The Hitman knows Mayweather all too well having lost their welterweight title fight in Las Vegas 15 years ago.
It's unclear if Hatton will be one and done after his clash with Barerra. But he could make himself a bucketload of cash if he were to put himself forward to face Mayweather again.
YouTuber juggernaut KSI will likely be ringside for his little brother's clash with the undefeated Mayweather.
He could potentially opt to challenge the Olympic bronze medallist should his brother fall at the Michigan mauler's hands.
And given the massive audience KSI has amassed across multiple social media platforms, Mayweather would likely be tempted to fight the Brit.
Mayweather has unfinished with YouTuber turned boxer Paul following their brawl last May.
Money managed to land a few blows on Paul after having his hat stolen but was left irate by the social media star's actions.
