John Gotti III’s suspension by the Florida State Boxing Commission has been lifted in connection with the post-fight incident involving Floyd Mayweather.

A representative from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, which oversees the commission, confirmed the update to MMA Hook. However, no specific reason was given for the reversal of the initial six-month suspension. Despite attempts to reach Gotti III for comment, he remained unavailable.

The suspension had been imposed after Gotti III ignored referee Kenny Bayless’ signal to stop his exhibition fight with Mayweather, leading to a brief scuffle between both boxers and their teams inside the ring. The chaos spilled over, resulting in other fights breaking out in the arena. Surprisingly, Mayweather himself was not subjected to any suspension.

The exhibition match, which lasted eight rounds, was halted in the sixth round after Bayless repeatedly cautioned both fighters for excessive trash talk and Gotti III for holding. As Mayweather taunted Gotti III and his supporters outside the ring, tensions escalated, and the two engaged in a continuous exchange of profanities before the fight was stopped.

Gotti III previously declared Mayweather as his “enemy for life,” but during an appearance on The MMA Hour, he stated that their animosity had dissipated, and he was now interested in arranging a rematch.

Though the exhibition match did not affect the professional records of either fighter, the melee proved to be a setback and particularly embarrassing for Mayweather, who had retired undefeated but continued to promote exhibition matches with relatively inexperienced boxers like Logan Paul and Aaron Chalmers.
