Floyd Mayweather prepares to fight again

FLOYD MAYWEATHER, like all the rest, is struggling to settle in retirement.

In Las Vegas last night, Floyd Mayweather spoke with Showtime’s ringside reporter Jim Gray, and discussed his intent to fight in the Octagon, former rival Conor McGregor’s recent incident that involved attacking a bus, and more”

“Retirement has been great,” Mayweather said, “but as you know and everyone knows, I go in retirement and I come back.  It is possible I do come back, but if I do come back, it has to be in the Octagon.

“I spoke with my team, I spoke with Al Haymon.  Al Haymon says ‘no’.  I spoke with Showtime, I spoke with CBS.  If I do come back, Showtime and CBS has to be involved.


Floyd Mayweather was then asked about Conor McGregor’s recent war with a bus.

“I feel that when you have reached such high status you have to carry yourself in a classy way,” Floyd Mayweather said, perhaps suggesting that throwing heavy objects at a bus was not classy. “Outside the ring you have to carry yourself as a gentleman.”


What weight would he come back at?
“When I do go to the Octagon I look forward to going to 145 (pounds).”


And he wants to come back?
“Absolutely. If the money is right.”


But it’s all about the money?
“You got to talk to Showtime, CBS.  The money is going to be crazy.  I can do whatever I want to do.  I’m Floyd Mayweather.”


Of course he is. Would he box again?
“I would not box again,” he said, surprising no one.
