BJ Penn, Boxing Champion Sugar Ray Leonard Exchange Tweets; Penn Talks About Return

Former UFC champion BJ Penn has remained pretty strong in regards to staying retired from active competition.

However, during a brief exchange over Twitter with boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, “The Prodigy” hinted he might come out of retirement.

Leonard wrote, “always loved you “Heart”!!!!!” to Penn on his Twitter account.

Penn replied back to Leonard, “thanks for the kind words..coming from you maybe I should fight again..you just made my day!”

Of course, this could be nothing more than a little chat between fighters on social media. But, any chance that we might see Penn fight again inside the Octagon is a day that gets a little brighter for me.
