Floyd Mayweather Denies Claims He Could Come Out Of Retirement.
Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr. is an American professional boxing promoter and former professional boxer. He competed from 1996 to 2007, 2009 to 2010, 2011 to 2015, and made a one-fight comeback in 2017.
Floyd Mayweather has insisted that he’s finished with boxing and has no plans to come out of retirement.
There have been suggestions that Mayweather, who beat Conor McGregor in his last fight in 2017, could return to the ring to take on Adrien Broner.
However, Mayweather dismissed the claims, saying he doesn’t want to face fighters who ‘sell-out little arenas’.
Mayweather told Fight Hype: ‘These are just rumours. I’m retired. I’m finished with boxing. I stay in shape.
‘I am not retired from business. Would I fight with McGregor? People make $370million. I make that in one night. I made over $320m twice. It only took me 36 minutes or 28 minutes, something like that.
If this guy [Broner] wants to fight Floyd I say ‘you guys sell out little arenas and do some little baby moves, not bad, but I’m older and a lot wiser, meaning I don’t want to end up like my uncle Rog. A lot of fighters don’t know when to give up.
Even the fight with McGregor it was smart on my behalf and smart on his behalf. I can make more money than any other fighter.’
He later admitted that he could consider return to boxing for entertainment and it must be against a boxer who sells out big arenas.
He said: ‘Even if we did it again it’s entertainment and it’s business. I’m not boxing – no boxing at all.
I’m done, I’m retired and I love my life. I enjoy being retired. If I see an opportunity and have a little fun and make $600million – why not.
If I was to come back why would I fight a fighter that only sells out little cities?’.
In his entire career, Mayweather has taken part in 50 fights, winning all of them. He is considered as one of the greatest boxers having won 15 major world titles.
