Finally, Mayweather dumps boxing


Floyd Mayweather has ruled out a return to boxing and rubbished claims he is broke.

Rumours the undefeated former boxing world champion could take on Adrian Broner were dismissed by the ‘Money’ – as he says he does not want to end up dead like his uncle Roger Mayweather, who passed away in March.

But Floyd did admit the chance to make £300million from half an hour fighting Irish former world UFC champion Conor McGregor in the Octagon could see his business acumen might kick in.

Mayweather is said to have made £644m from his boxing career.

He also took in a reported £221m from his first clash with McGregor in 2017.

But he blew his fortune on bling and parties, it has been claimed.

A video emerged of him training hard in the ring sparking rumours of a comeback but in an interview with Fight Hype, he said of a return to boxing: “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.

“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.
