Floyd Mayweather retired from boxing with a perfect 49-0 record.  It’s been widely assumed that he will come back for a big 50th win before he’s done completely.  Prospective opponents are already lining up for their shot at a big payday, but Mayweather says he’s already well off.

UFC champion Conor McGregor has been angling for a fight with Mayweather, even willing to get in the boxing ring instead of the Octagon to make it happen.  McGregor says he wants $100 million to make the highly anticipated bout happen, and that Mayweather is “afraid of a real fight.”

He isn’t the only one trying to get the champ back in the ring.  Manny Pacquiao has once again begun using social media to try and lure Mayweather for another match.  Pacquiao says the fans really want a rematch, and he promises to make sure it’s a great fight this time after a lackluster match the first time.

Pacquiao not only wants to redeem himself from a lackluster showing in the first fight, he also wants the pig purse that comes from a Mayweather bout.  Pacman has been known for causing himself serious financial issues from splurging on his massive entourage of family and friends, and bad investments.  Mayweather noted that he is well off, and does not need to keep fighting like others; he’s content in retirement.

“A lot of fighters in the sport of boxing may want to retire, but they have to fight because they have to,” said Mayweather to USA Today. “I don’t have to fight.

“I just made $300 million for fighting Pacquiao. I’m OK. Like I said before, I’m happy with my position. Once again, the money don’t make me; I make money. I’m well off. I make smart moves, and like I said before, I’m happy with where my career has went.”

It was Mayweather himself who opened the door to the possibility of another fight for a nine-figure payday, but he noted he feels different ways on different days.

“Different days, I say different things. Different days, I feel different ways,” Mayweather said in response to his comments that he’s open to a ring return. “I feel different each day. Can Floyd Mayweather contradict himself? Absolutely. So that’s why I know when I contradict myself, it doesn’t mean I’m crazy.

“When someone puts up something I said in the past like, ‘Oh you said this, this day, well you said this, that day,’ I can contradict myself. I’m only human. I’m not perfect. God only made one thing perfect: my boxing record.”

It seems to me that a 50th fight isn’t exactly off the table; Mayweather could change his mind again, especially if that purse is too hard to pass up.
