Floyd Mayweather’s company, Mayweather Promotions, has filed for the trademarks “TMT 50” and “TBE 50,” according to the U.S. Patent & Trademark website.

If Mayweather were come out of retirement to fight again, the fight would be the 50th of his career. He added the number to his previously coined acronyms TMT (The Money Team) and TBE (The Best Ever) in a trademark filing submitted on April 21. 

Mayweather fueled speculation that he could return to the ring in an interview with Showtime on Saturday when he said he has been in discussion with CBS and Showtime about a potential return.

“Everyone is asking me, ‘Is Floyd Mayweather coming back?’” Mayweather said. “Right now, I’m happy being [retired], but I’ve been talking with CBS and Showtime, and you just never know.”

Mayweather’s career record is 49–0.
