The mirage of Floyd Mayweather boxing UFC star Conor McGregor has receded.
Mr Money, during his promotion of James DeGale’s world title unification fight with Badou Jack in New York on Saturday night, virtually ruled out any kind of comeback.
When asked about reports that he had offered McGregor $15 million, Mayweather said: ‘I’ve had my career.
‘All kinds of guys from other sports keep calling me out. If it ever happened it would be an easy win for me.
‘But I want to concentrate on helping the young boxers I promote accomplish their dreams – and helping my children become the best people they can.’
Mayweather had insisted at first that he would not return to the ring for less than $100 million but now says: I’m a businessman and I like making money but I’m retired now on my record of 49 and 0.
‘People with an interest in me coming back are not thinking of my health and my family.
‘There’s no point me no longer being the sharpest tool in the box but having more money.
‘And I look at how the great Muhammad Ali went on too long.’
Mayweather did confirm that he will be making another speaking tour of Britain this spring.
