Mayweather Kills Rumors: No Return No Matter The Money

Former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather J.r (50-0, 27 KOs), 40 years old, has personally gone on record to deny the widely circulating rumors that he's seriously considering the possibility of returning for fight "51."

A report, which originated on TMZ, claimed Mayweather was in deep training for a possible return and telling several close friends that he was looking to fight again.

According to the report, Mayweather was mulling the idea of a rematch with UFC superstar Conor McGregor.

Mayweather retired back in 2015 after dominating former welterweight world champion Andre Berto over twelve rounds at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather announced his return to the ring earlier this year - for a fight with McGregor, who would make his professional debut as a boxer. They fought at the junior middleweight limit of 154-pounds and used eight ounce gloves. 

The contest, carried by Showtime Pay-Per-View, took place in August at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. McGregor started well in the fight, but faded as the contest progressed and was eventually stopped in the tenth round.

There was huge business from that fight, with over 4 million pay-per-view purchases. And Mayweather made well over a $100 million.

After that victory Mayweather once again announced his retirement from boxing and promised to never fight again.

Because he posted training videos in recent weeks, reports have gone wild with claims of a potential return to the ring - something the boxer denies - and says no financial offer will make him fight again - as he branded the initial report by TMZ as "lies."

"I'm happily retired. I'm not fighting no more, no matter what the price is," stated Mayweather to Fighthype.com.

Mayweather also denied that he ever made any statements about Bolton boxer Amir Khan.

In the last few days, statements attributed to Mayweather were circulating all over the UK press, where the boxer was claimed to have responded to a callout by Khan and returned fire with some verbal shots at the former champion and his ongoing participation in a popular reality show. Mayweather branded the quotes as "fake" and "lies."

Idk why people are so obsessed with him coming back. Let the man enjoy retirement as the greatest of his Era and a top 10 ATG.

I don't think he will come back. To entertain the idea, if you think of it the only matchup that makes any sense is Oscar Floyd 2. I say this because there is so much heat there. Oscars comments were…

He said he was done and retired about three times now. Berto was supposed to be his last fight and "50" didn't matter to him. It won't be long before he's bleeding money again and in need of another big…
