Every so often, there is always that rumor that Floyd Mayweather would make take one more stab into the ring against someone. Whether it be against Manny Pacquiao, Connor McGregor in rematches, or even as of last week the rumor of him coming out to take on former champion Adrien Broner, Mayweather’s name is always being trotted out there.
Goes without saying, we can all put this all to rest.
Mayweather spoke with the folks at Fighthype.com recently to remind everyone that he is not getting back into the ring anytime soon.
“No, those are just rumors,” Mayweather said to FightHype about the possibility of fighting Broner that surfaced last week. “I’m retired. I’m through with boxing. It doesn’t hurt to stay in shape. Your body’s your temple. Just in the gym keeping sharp.”
All of this “Is Mayweather fighting again?” talk stems from the on his Instagram showed him training in a ring last week. Since then, the undefeated Mayweather has been floated around with on his possible return. Those talks, of course, have been surfacing around for a while. A lot of those for Mayweather came to a screeching halt with the passing of Roger Mayweather back in March.
For the time being, Mayweather, who hasn’t been in action since stopping Conor McGregor back in 2017 to go 50-0, is enjoying what he is doing right now and isn’t looking to return anytime soon.
“If I am going to do something, it’s got to be worth it. There’s no number worth me getting back in the ring and fighting these young fighters and get wear and tear on my body,” Mayweather explained. “Am I fighting these young fighters? No. I’m retired. I’m retired from the sport of boxing. I’m training, having fun, and enjoying life. I don’t want for nothing.”
Mayweather being hinted to get back in the ring at this point isn’t happening but that despite these words coming from him, aren’t going to stop the rumors of him returning. Especially now with heavyweights Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield talking about making returns in charity action in their 50s. While many will speak Mayweather’s name into action into existence, one thing for sure so far is that it isn’t happening, and our last image of him in the ring will be that tenth round where he stopped a spent boxing novice in McGregor.
