Floyd Mayweather insists he will not come out of retirement

Floyd Mayweather insists he has no plans to come out of retirement just weeks after his final fight.

‘Money’ Mayweather ended his ring career by winning his 49th successive fight on September with a points decision win over Andre Berto to retain his WBC and WBA Welterweight titles in Las Vegas.

That win over Berto saw him retire unbeaten and equal Rocky Marciano’s record and despite many people wanting him to break the record Mayweather insists he has nothing to prove to anyone.

British fighter Amir Khan is one boxer desperate for Mayweather to change his mind with the Bolton man confident he will finally get him to perform a u-turn.

Khan has recently said he believes he could get Mayweather back in the ring for one final bout and he reckons if he could beat Manny Pacquiao then Mayweather will definitely take the fight.

Khan told Sky Sports: “I think Floyd Mayweather will have one more fight. He’s on 49-0 and he knows that. He’s got one more fight left in him. At the moment he’s matching Rocky Marciano’s record but he can’t beat him and get to 50. I’m there ready and waiting for him. 

“I want to fight Manny Pacquiao next because if I beat him, maybe that will make Floyd Mayweather come out of retirement to fight me. The public demand would be huge.”

Despite Khan’s claim that Mayweather would not be able to refuse the fight the unbeaten fighter, who once retired back in 2008, insists he is happy in his role as a promoter now. He said: “I'm not coming back. I'm just happy to be on the other side."
