Undefeated Champion Boxer Floyd Mayweather Announces He's Retiring

"Boxing is a very, very brutal sport".

He has made several videos on his social media accounts in the past two years claiming he will fight Manny Pacquiao in a rematch only to later say that the Filipino boxer is using his name to stay relevant. He continued: "You have got to know when to hang it up". His last bout technically was an exhibition against Japanese kickboxing star in Tenshin Nasukawa in on December 31, 2018 thay ending with Mayweather winning by first-round TKO. "I make great money doing exhibitions - between 10 and 30 million dollars", he told Reuters.

An hour or so before posting that, Mayweather also shared that he and UFC president Dana White are "working together again to bring the world another spectacular event" next year. Mayweather won the fight easily, but there was rumors about fight fixing and it has been quiet around the 42-year-old boxer since then.

Mayweather, who was undefeated in his career with a record of 50-0, is considered one of boxing's all-time greats. It was just time for Mayweather to feel the media spotlight again.

"This was my last fight", Mayweather said afterward.

"I think I make more doing that than most fighters make fighting", he said Saturday. He also stated that if they did fight, he would make "between $110 and $200 million" which would be almost $100 million more than he made during his fight against McGregor.

Mayweather is also the master of the bait and switch when it comes to social media. Mayweather was spotted Wednesday night in Los Angeles sitting with UFC president Dana White at the National Basketball Association game between the LA Clippers and Boston Celtics.

After McGregor's boxing loss, many people believed that there would be a rematch between the two in the UFC octagon, but it never occurred.
