Retired American professional boxer, Floyd Mayweather has ruled out any chances of returning to the ring for fight.

Mayweather, who retired in 2017, also rubbished suggestions that he is going broke

He told UK Sun that he is done with boxing after many suggested that he could be preparing for a return into the ring.

CANDIIDONLINE recalls that the former heavyweight champion lifted five different weight titles haven won all his 50 professional bouts to make him the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of all time in a glittering career.

He fought UFC champ McGregor and is said to have earned $275m from this clash alone, but there are rumours that the 43-year-old is preparing for a return.

Mayweather was rumoured to be coming out of retirement to take on Adrian Broner which he dismissed and stated that he is not ready to end up like his late uncle Roger.

“These are just rumours. I’m retired. I’m finished with boxing. I stay in shape.

“I am not retired from business. Would I fight with McGregor? People make $370million. I make that in one night. I made over $320m twice. It only took me 36 minutes or 28 minutes, something like that.

“If this guy (Broner) wants to fight Floyd I say you guys sell out little arenas and do some little baby moves, not bad, but I’m older and a lot wiser, meaning I don’t want to end up like my uncle Rog. A lot of fighters don’t know when to give up.

“Even the fight with McGregor it was smart on my behalf and smart on his behalf. I can make more money than any other fighter.

“Even if we did it again it’s entertainment and it’s business. I’m not boxing – no boxing at all.

“I’m done, I’m retired and i love my life. I enjoy being retired. If I see an opportunity and have a little fun and make $600million – why not. If I was to come back why would I fight a fighter that only sells out little cities.” Mayweather said in an interview with Fight Hype.
