Floyd Mayweather Jr
It looks like Floyd Mayweather Jr is going to be stripped by Ring Magazine of his current pound-for-pound ranking after May this year.
With no title to brag about after losing his Ring ranking, he will most probably use his being an undefeated fighter on record to promote himself and still remain credible as a top contender for the pound-for-pound king.
Regardless of his pound-for-pound ranking, Mayweather has a number of options which he can explore to remain relevant in his boxing career.
Here are five possible options for the undefeated fighter.

Retiring is a good option if you have the money to keep you going for the rest of your life. And since Floyd claims he's got the money, he can retire for good with his children and family.
After all, he is the richest boxer according to the Forbes list of richest sportsmen.
Retiring with a family is a good option. However, Floyd has yet to untangle his tie with girlfriend Josie Harris who charged him with assault in connection with the domestic violence incident last year where Mayweather allegedly attacked her in front of their children.
Once he gets past his former girl friend Josie Harris who is the mother of his children, he could start a new family with current love interest Shantel Jackson.
Floyd and Shantel have declared they were getting married soon.
Floyd Mayweather Jr with 50 Cent
Floyd has been seen traveling lately with friend and rapper 50 Cent. It seems Floyd is happy with his business relationship with the rapper who is also into movie production.
Mayweather announced early this year, he is joining 50 Cent in a movie production venture and has created Mayweather Productions with the rapper as his business partner.
The unbeaten boxer sees the collaboration will be a brilliant move for the both him and 50 Cent.
"I won't be able to rap forever," 50 Cent said.
"And I won't be able to box forever," Mayweather seconded.

Floyd needs to remove some "rusts" in his body and do a needed tune-up fight before he plunges into a serious bout with Manny Pacquiao.
Paul Spadafora has often been mentioned as a his choice for a tune-up fight that is easy to promote and a possible money maker.
Given his know marketing expertise, Floyd can drum up a fight with Spadafora as a legit opponent on the basis of his undefeated pro boxing record. It will be a good fight but Mayweather will most likely prevail.
Mayweather has to win a tune-up fight and he could do that with Spadafora.
Rumors are swirling around Mayweather vs Spadafora fight are in discussions.
After getting past Spadafora, Mayweather could face newly-crowned WBC welterweight champ Victor Ortiz before the end of the year.
Another option would be to fight Miguel Cotto or Paulie Malignaggi before finally facing Manny Pacquiao next May.
Mayweather was in attendance at the Ortiz-Berto fight Saturday apparently looking at his next fight possibilities.
It appears he was looking at Andre Berto for his next fight but his loss will not do him good in promoting a losing fighter.
Mayweather could now be considering Victor Ortiz for his next fight.
Most boxing fans who took time out to provide answers to a question on whether they believe Mayweather and Pacquiao will eventually face each other in the ring are saying the fight will most likely happen.
In some internet polls, close to 70 percent of the respondents are saying the fight will happen next year.
During the failed negotiations on the long-awaited fight, promoters of Pacquiao and Mayweather were circling around a fight purse of $40 million apiece.
In the latest attempt to revive the failed negotiations, Mayweather demanded a purse of $100 million.
With the renewed interest for the most talked about fight in years, it may just be possible the staggering amount which include pay-per-view buys can be generated.
It would be a record-breaking fight purse in boxing history. And it would be unimaginable for both Mayweather and Pacquiao to ignore what appears to be their biggest fight purse ever in their professional boxing careers.
