Retired former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0, 26KOs) is still creating headlines with his ongoing tour of the UK.
In one of his most recent stops, Mayweather answered questions for an audience of fans at Scott Murray's Premier Suite at Bar Sport in Cannock, England.
Mayweather retired from boxing last September after winning a twelve round unanimous decision over Andre Berto at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The former pound-for-pound king has since placed his focus on expanding his promotional company, Mayweather Promotions.
Throughout the night, Mayweather was taking in a lot of questions regarding certain fights that never happened - like Amir Khan, Keith Thurman and others.
"I couldn’t fight everyone. It has to make business sense," Mayweather replied.
The most popular question of the night had to do with Mayweather potentially coming back to the ring to pursue his 50th win - which in turn would break the unbeaten streak of heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano.
Mayweather has no interest in returning or breaking that record.
“I didn’t go into the sport really focusing on breaking records, I got into the sport to display my skills. Rocky Marciano, what he did, he is a legendary champion and a great person. But I don’t want boxing to retire me. I wanted to retire from the sport with all of my faculties," Mayweather said.
When discussing the subject of retirement, he admits his body began to break down as the years rolled along. Even in his last fight, he says his body was not 100%.
"Early on I was a huge power puncher, a knockout artist, but you have to learn to make adjustments. As I got older my body started to break down. Over half of my fights my body was not 100 percent. I was using my B-game to beat a guy like [Berto in my last fight]," Mayweather said.
