Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather has insisted he will not make a comeback. The 38-year-old American has been linked with a big-money rematch against long-time foe Manny Pacquiao, but Mayweather has claimed he harbours no ambition to return to the ring.
The unbeaten star last fought against Andre Berto in September, when he coasted to a routine victory. Mayweather has revealed his attention is now centred on growing his own boxing company, Mayweather Promotions.
"As of right now I'm not focused on me, I'm focussed on the young fighters under the Mayweather Promotions banner, and trying to help those young fighters to be pay-per-view stars," he told talkSPORT.
"I'm not thinking about who I could fight or who I could come out of retirement for, I just want to get back into the sport in a different way. I've been fighting my whole life and as a professional I competed at the highest level for 20 years, so it's time for me to let the young guys take over."
Mayweather – who boasts a professional record of 49 wins from 49 fights – has revealed that a series of "smart investments" mean he has no financial need to make a comeback.
"I will make seven figures a month for the rest of my life," he said. "I've made some very smart investments and I'm living very comfortably, my children are going to school and will be going to college soon, and that's what is most important to me right now. I'm just blessed way beyond belief."
