It looks like we will be seeing more of Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. in the rings.
According to ESPN, the undefeated welterweight fighter admitted that he may not be done with boxing until the completion of his 30 month deal with Showtime that he signed earlier this year.
Mayweather told fans during his tour in San Antonio:
“After my five more fights, guess what? I think after getting to 49-0 we may stay in this sport a little longer.”
The Welterweight title holder had signed a deal worth an estimated $200 plus million, and said once the contract was up, which was after his fight with Robert Guerrero on May 4th, he would walk away from boxing.
But obviously Mayweather has had a change of heart. Perhaps he still has his heart set on fighting.
He had later mentioned to the fans:
“I want to rack up my six victories and hopefully do commentating and keep the sport of boxing alive. That’s what I’m focused on. I only have 30 months left, so I want to just help clean the sport up. After this fight I’ve got five more fights. That’s all I got to do, finish putting them stamps on my legacy.”
And with that decision, we can see why Mayweather is the Welterweight champ!
