MAYWEATHER RULES OUT MCGREGOR BOUT SAYS: HE IS RETIRED……but
All kinds of guys from other sports keep calling me out. If it ever happened it would be an easy win for me.
‘But I want to concentrate on helping the young boxers I promote accomplish their dreams – and helping my children become the best people they can.’
Mayweather had insisted he would not return to the ring for less than a $100 million purse but he says now: I’m a businessman and I like making money but I’m retired now on my record of 49 and 0.
People with an interest in me coming back are not thinking of my health and my family.
‘There’s no point me no longer being the sharpest tool in the box but having more money.
‘And I look at how the great Muhammad Ali went on too long.’
Mayweather did confirm that he will be making another speaking tour of Britain this spring.
Floyd Mayweather has claimed he offered Conor McGregor £12million to take him on in a boxing fight.
The pair have continued to tease a super-fight for the best part of a year with fans growing increasingly excited at the prospect of the two biggest characters in combat sports going head-to-head.
And retired undefeated boxer Mayweather, who has not fought since September 2015, revealed talks have taken place yet have so far been unsuccessful.
Conor McGregor keeps telling everybody he wants the fight,’ he told ESPN’s First Take. ‘Let’s make it happen.
‘We tried to make the McGregor fight. My number was a guaranteed $100million (£83m). We offered him $15m (£12m).
‘We’re the A-side and I don’t know how much he has made but I’m pretty sure he hasn’t made $2m (£1.65m) in an MMA bout.
‘We can talk about splitting the PPV but we are the A-side. How can a guy talk about $20m (£16.5m) or $30m (£24.7m) if he’s not made eight or nine? Is the fight going to happen? We’re working on it.’
However, the negotiations may have some way to go between the two with McGregor having previously demanded a $100m (£82.6m) purse to face Mayweather.
The Irishman is currently taking a break from mixed martial arts ahead of becoming a father for the first time in May.
