Lampley on Mayweather: Maybe He Can Fight a Woman Next?

By Radio Rahim

Jim Lampley, who is part of the broadcast team for HBO's World Championship Boxing, does not believe Floyd Mayweather Jr. will remain in retirement.

He fully expects Mayweather to return to the ring and fight again.

Mayweather, 40 years old, was in action last month, when he returned to boxing after two years of being in retirement.

The former five division world champion stepped in the ring with UFC superstar Conor McGregor, who was making his professional debut in boxing.

Mayweather did very little in the first few rounds, allowing McGregor to get off to a good start. But once Mayweather got going, he began to break McGregor down and eventually stopped him in the tenth round.

With the pay-per-view buyrate likely dropping down at over 4 million, Mayweather stands to make a reported sum of $300 million when all of the revenue is counted up.

Lampley thought very little of that event, but believes Mayweather will still continue to fight - and says maybe he should do so against a woman - which may or may not be a jab at Mayweather's past issues with domestic violence.

"I haven't seen [Mayweather-McGregor]. I saw the stoppage, that's all I saw. And I saw the CompuBox numbers, which told me what happened in the fight. I think Floyd did a brilliant job of doing what he needed to do in the fight and giving the MMA wish-clientele something to hold on to - 'oh, Conor won the first three rounds.' I was surprised at the number of boxing experts who accepted the notion that Floyd is actually retired," Lampley told BoxingScene.com.

"Why would you be actually retired when you can make that much money that easily? Why not fight a woman next? I think there are all sorts of ways for Floyd to make more money. And I expect him to make more money."

"I think Mayweather-McGregor is already forgotten and by next week it will be way more forgotten [when Canelo Alvarez fights Gennady Golovkin]. You are going to see something spectacular next weekend - which will be a fire-fight, which will be a skilled boxing match between two really skilled fighters. There won't be any 40 year olds in the ring and there won't be any kickboxers in the ring."

[QUOTE=ADP02;18034796]Man, the options for Floyd's cherry picking are endless. Maybe some P4P woman boxer? Floyd will market here as a top P4P fighter.

There's a possibility that floyd will fight a women. Floyd even fight a non-boxer, I'm sure with the right money floyd will fight a woman for an easy money.
