Floyd Mayweather Rebuffs Claims He Is Planning On Coming Out Of Retirement

Retired legendary boxer, Floyd Mayweather has reiterated he's done with his boxing career and isn't planning of ever coming out of retirement to box professionally again.

The flamboyant boxer, who has won all of his 50 career fights, had his last bout against UFC's Conor McGregor in 2017. There are now speculations the 43-year-old would come out of retirement to fight Adrien Broner.

Floyd has now come out to clarify the rumours as he insists he wouldn't be coming out of retirement, and even if he eventually considers, it would be with someone who sells out big arenas.

Speaking to 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.

"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?"
