- Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he’s happy living the retired life
- He disclosed he’s been offered a huge amount of money just to fight again
- If he comes back, he said it would probably be a championship fight and a 9-figure payday
Retired pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he enjoys his retired life but admitted that if he’ll come out of retirement, it would have to be for a big payday and a chance to finish his career 50-0.
Fox Sports quoted the undefeated American boxer as saying during an interview with Jim Gray on “Showtime Boxing” on Saturday, March 30:“Yes, you know, I’m happy to be where I’m at. Everyone is asking me, ‘Is Floyd Mayweather coming back?’ Right now, I’m happy being on this side, but I’ve been talking with CBS and Showtime, and you just never know. But right now, I’m just happy on this side.”
He disclosed that he’s been offered a huge amount of money just to come out of retirement.
“As of right now, some crazy numbers have been thrown my way – upwards, of course, of nine figures. But I’m truly blessed beyond belief, and I really don’t know what we’re going to do. But right now, I’m really happy being on this side helping our fighters,” he said.
“If I came back, of course, it would have to be a nine-figure payday and probably a championship fight and a nine-figure payday.”
Mayweather announced his retirement after he defeated Andre Berto in September last year.
After 49 straight victories, he felt he had accomplished everything in boxing and has nothing left to prove. That’s the reason why he decided it’s time for him to retire.
These days, he enjoys his retired life by spending his hard-earned money, saying that he’ll be earning seven figures monthly for the rest of his life.
Market Watch quoted him as telling TMZ last March: “I’m loving the retired life. Still making seven figures a month for the rest of my life. Smart investments. I’ve made some smart moves. It’s not really bragging if you got it.”
