Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather has responded to talks linking him with a return to the ring in ridiculing fashion, insisting he is happily retired.
The American boxer retired in September 2015, with a perfect 49-0 record after claiming world titles in five different weight classes and commanded purses of up to $100m in his 19-year career.
Rumours of rematch against Pacquiao were laughed off by Mayweather, while UFC superstar Conor McGregor continues to call out Money.
Now Mayweather has responded to the speculation in typically brash fashion, posting a picture of the $100m cheque he earned by taking on and beating Pacquiao last year.
A message written alongside read: “Gotta love these backseat drivers so worried about another man’s legacy instead of trying to write their own. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh.
“This is just one of my many checks, a cool $100,000,000.00 that I still have every dime of. Y’all still have to work however, I’m happily retired. At the end of the day, it’s them Benjamin Franklins that matter to me, so the joke’s on you.
“I’ve made smart investments, sorry for those who thought that I couldn’t read, write, or count. Y’all call them watches, I call them time pieces. Y’all call them boats, I call them yachts. Y’all call them houses, I call them mansions. Y’all charter jets and we own jets.”
