Floyd Mayweather - ‘I’m finished with boxing’

Over the past couple of weeks, rumours circulating on social media have suggested that pound-for-pound great Floyd Mayweather could return to the ring, with fellow American Adrien Broner a potential opponent.

Mayweather has been retired since his win over Irishman Conor McGregor in 2017.

This week, the American dismissed those comeback rumours.

“I'm retired. I'm finished with boxing,” Mayweather told Fight Hype.

He also referenced his uncle and former trainer Roger Mayweather, who died aged 58 in March, saying: “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.”

So, don’t expect to see Mayweather, who won all 50 of his professional contests, in a world title fight again.

But he has not completely ruled out a rematch with UFC star McGregor, who was making his boxing debut in their much-hyped first fight.

"Even if we did it again, it's entertainment and it's business - I'm not boxing no boxers,” Mayweather said.
