Floyd Mayweather Jr. has remained firm on his stance of being retired despite the fact that most people don’t buy his claim.
Mayweather has often been linked to a rematch with Filipino fighter Manny Pacquiao but has repeatedly doused water on any hope from that happening moving forward.
In fact the undefeated American fighter has spoken on the latest rumors via Fightyhype.com.
“I don’t want to hear this anymore, Floyd Mayweather-Pacquiao. That’s over with. That chapter is over with. That’s totally over with. I don’t want to hear nothing else about Mayweather-Pacquiao. That’s not going to ever happen again. That will never happen again. Never. Out of 12 rounds and I win 10 out of 12 rounds, why should I have to prove myself? Blowout!”
But the case doesn’t seem to be the same for another fighter, Gennady Golovkin.
Golovkin is another fighter who had called out Mayweather and based on his latest interview in another report from Fighthype.com, Triple G could be an option in case he does return to the boxing ring.
“When you hear stuff about Triple G, like I said before, I told Triple G what he had to do if he wants a fight with me. He’s gotta call out Andre Ward, beat Andre Ward, and then I’ll fight him. I haven’t seen him call out Andre Ward yet.”
Checking out Golovkin’s schedule, a possible showdown with Mayweather could take some time. The Kazakh fighter will be taking the ring this coming April 23 where he will face Dominic Wade at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
The fight is Golovkin’s voluntary bout before possibly facing off against WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez later this year.
Alvarez will also be facing Bolton fighter Amir Khan a couple of weeks later (May 7) in Las Vegas. Both fighters must win to preserve another possible mega bout though both camps have yet to come to terms on the stipulations for the said fight.
