Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he’s ‘100% sure’ he will never box professionally again

Written by on November 2, 2020

Since retiring from professional boxing with an unmatched 50-0 record, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has turned his attention to promoting and mentoring the next generation of fighters.

Despite still being deeply involved in the sport on a daily basis, Mayweather says there is no temptation for him to come out of retirement.
“As of right now, I’m doing exhibitions,” Mayweather told CNN en Español’s Raul Saenz. “I’m 100% sure that I’m not fighting against any boxer anymore. So, that’s out of the question. I mean, just my faculties mean a lot to me. Money don’t make me, I make money and my health is more important than money.
“As far as me doing exhibitions and me fighting MMA guys, will I do that in a box ring? Absolutely.”
Considered one of the sport’s all-time greats, Forbes estimates Mayweather’s fight against Conor McGregor in Las Vegas in 2017 generated more than $550 million in revenue. Mayweather earned a reported $275 million, a sum generated both from his roles as fighter and also promoter.
Outside of the boxing ring, Mayweather was arrested in September 2010 after authorities said he punched Josie Harris — the mother of three of his children at his Las Vegas home — where she was living with his two young sons and a daughter.
The fighter pleaded guilty 14 months later to a reduced charge of misdemeanor battery and two counts of harassment. He was sentenced to three months, and he served two.
