Floyd Mayweather Jr. is officially retired. But boxing fans are still yearning for the undefeated fighter to make a comeback for an advertised, farewell bout.
Remember, Mayweather never bowed out with prior notice. Therefore, fans feel like they deserve to see the leader of The Money Team face an elite opponent such as Gennady “GGG” Golovkin or old foe Manny Pacquiao.
Even though Pacquiao is set to hang the gloves after his final Timothy Bradley, the Filipino boxer had expressed his desire to have a rematch with Mayweather before his retirement bout was finalized. Could Mayweather have a change of heart and return to the ring? “I can barely make 147, so how am I gonna fight at 160 (against Triple G)?” Mayweather told FightHype.com. (Watch Video Above)
Triple G vs Money Mayweather…
Last year, Golovkin, arguably the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world today, threw down the gauntlet to Mayweather. “Right now this is the biggest fight (Mayweather vs Triple G) in the world. He’s a great champion. Look at me, I’m not big, I’m not fat. My couple of last fights – I was 158, 159,” Golovkin told The Washington Post.
Since Golovkin made those comments, Mayweather retired and the Kazakh went on a rampaging streak. “It’s possible for me (to go down to fight him). I would go to 154 just for Floyd. I understand that this is the biggest fight in the world. This would show who is who, the best fighter in the world.”
Despite Golovkin’s willingness to drop some weight to fight Mayweather, the retired boxer hasn’t shown any respect. “Triple G, I mean, not being disrespectful, but he’s straight up and down, no special effects. That’s easy work…with the Pacquiao fight, you know, 10 rounds to 2, that was a blowout,” Mayweather said recently.
Will Floyd Mayweather ever come out of retirement? There is a lot of money on the line and the world is waiting…
