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.
