Floyd slams door on rematch

‘I don’t want to fight anymore,’ he says.

Floyd Mayweather insists that he is done with boxing.

Speaking to reporters in Brooklyn, New York, yesterday where he presided over a card he is promoting, Mayweather says there is desire for him to return to the ring, a statement that was a response to queries about him facing Manny Pacquiao in a rematch next year.

“I don’t want to fight anymore,” said Mayweather, brushing off claims that his presence at ringside when Pacquiao fought Jessie Vargas in Las Vegas two weeks ago was a sign that they are going to go at it one more time.

“I’m happy with my career,” said Mayweather, who turns 40 in February 2017.

“Not at all,” he said to a question whether he misses boxing.

Mayweather announced his retirement from boxing after beating Andre Berto in September last year, just months after scoring a lopsided decision over Pacquiao.

The Pacquiao match generated 4.6 million buys on PPV en route to earning $600 million in revenue.

While Mayweather is reluctant to don a pair of gloves, Pacquiao is hot to get it on again, adding that he wasn’t 100 percent because of a right shoulder injury.

Pacquiao, who turns 38 on Dec 17, is eyeing to return to the ring in April or May.

At the time of his retirement, Mayweather raised his record to 49-0.
