Former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather says he has no plans to return to the ring as he is happily retired.
In his last fight in September the undefeated Mayweather (49-0, 26KOs) won a 12 round unanimous decision over former welterweight champion Andre Berto in Las Vegas.
On May 2 last year he defeated Manny Pacquiao over 12 rounds in the ‘Fight of The Century’ reportedly earning $300 million for that one fight alone.
Despite speculation that he could make a comeback, Mayweather says he is making a seven figure income monthly on his investments which gives him no need to climb back in the ring again.
He took to the social networks on Sunday night and sent a message to his fans – and his long-time critics confirming that he was indeed happily retired from the sport.
“They say ‘life is what you make it” and to that, I’ll agree wholeheartedly! As I sit here acknowledging how blessed I am to be retired a year shy of my 40th birthday, it’s nearly impossible to say that I am not living the ‘American Dream’,” he said.
“Without my usual six-pack or muscle tone in sight, I can sit back and get the last laugh, knowing that I put in the ‘Hard Work and Dedication’ to be 49-0. I’m blessed to wake up every morning, certain that my bank accounts are growing.
“Making seven figures monthly without moving a finger just further proves that I’ve made brilliant investments and decisions that allow me to walk away from the ring, comfortably. I’m proud to be a king.”
