Mayweather has been in the sport of boxing for 18 years and his illustrious career appears to be coming to an end as Mayweather stated Tuesday afternoon that after the remaining three fights on his Showtime deal are done, so is his career.

Mayweather is undoubtedly the biggest star in boxing and his record breaking fight with Saul ďCaneloĒ Alvarez is proof of that. But as great as Mayweather is considered, there are still those who have their criticisms of the pound for pound king.

While Mayweather isnít necessarily bothered by the naysayers, he doesnít think heíll get full credit until after he hangs up the gloves.

ďA lot of times you hear people talk about Ďis Mayweather just protecting his recordí.

The only thing Iím doing is when I fight a fighter Ė and Iím not pointing the fingers at certain fighters Ė when we fight fighters, we fight who we fight. Like I always say, I donít think Iím going to get the props I truly deserve until my career is over. Thatís what I truly believeĒ Mayweather would tell the media prior to his workout.

Floydís level of dominance and skill is currently regarded second to none and his ultimate goal is to strive to be recognized as the best to ever do it. He wonít go as far as to say heís not appreciated but he does think the sport will feel his absence when he finally makes his exit.

ďI didnít say I didnít think I wasnít appreciated. I donít really want to say that. I think that Iíll truly be missed when Iím gone away from the sportĒ said Mayweather.

Mayweather has become accustomed to the criticisms that are constantly aimed at him but he isnít bothered by them and appreciates his fans who he credits for his stature in the sport today.

ďAs long as Iím happy at the end of the day. When I go out there and perform and as long as my family is happy and the loved ones thatís around me, because itís self preservation; Iím first. I love my fans because without them I wouldnít be where Iím at todayĒ.

Mayweather will have another fight for people to remember him by as he will take on hard hitting Marcos Maidana in less than 2 weeks.
