The undefeated and retired, Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather has declined a 9-figure worth of money to fight once again. As reported by BBC.com, Mayweather never seemed to be interested to fight again.
“It’s been crazy numbers that’s been thrown at me of course, nine figures.,” said Mayweather.
“You know, I’ve had money thrown at me from so many different countries. If I get the itch to come back, it really won’t be for the money but I’ll have to get paid, that’s why the nickname is Floyd “Money” Mayweather,” he added.
“As of right now, I am out completely.”
The rumored return fight was against Manny Pacquiao but Mayweather insisted that promoter, Bob Arum and his camp has not even touch-based with him about it.
“Everything that you guys are hearing that Michael Koncz has said and what Bob Arum has said is totally false. Totally false. I haven’t spoken to Bob Arum, I haven’t spoken to Michael Koncz.”
Mayweather reiterated that all negotiations go through him and if there is a brewing fight between him and Manny Pacquiao, he will be the first to know.
“And as far as people keep talking about Mayweather Promotions, I dictate and control what goes on with it. Leonard Ellerbe is the CEO but everything has to go through me and I have to put the green light on any and everything.”
As for now, Mayweather is happily retired and enjoying father time with his kids.
“Life is great. My family has a comfortable life from me going out there and taking chances and taking risks. That was the ultimate goal. My kids will be going to college real soon.”
“I am very happy that I was able to be a risk-taker. Roll the dice and take chances. Me being in the 12th grade, leaving school, leaving everything behind, leaving my family behind to go out there and do something that I love to do. It paid off in the long run.”
