Mayweather wants $200 million to come out of retirement

Floyd Mayweather Jnr has revealed it will take $200 million for him to make a real return to the ring.

The American boxing great has teased a comeback by saying it would take extraordinary figure to have a sanctioned bout.

Mayweather, 45, has not had a proper fight since he extended his unbeaten record to 50 fights when he stopped Conor McGregor in 2017.

The multi-weight world champion has partaken in exhibition bouts since in Miami, Japan and Abu Dhabi since, but these were not official bouts.

He is planning more exhibition events but admitted he could also have a real fight.

“I’m still the most talked about motherf***** in boxing and I don’t even fight any more,” Mayweather told Fight Hype.

“All I do is rob the bank and they’re going to continue to me.

“I got three more exhibitions year, could be one fight and fighting in two exhibitions.

“But guess what, you better know it’s at least and is the lowest I’m talking about $200 million.”

Mayweather and McGregor teased about a rematch recently on social media but there have been no real talks yet about the pair rekindling their rivalry for another -spinning match up.

Those to the former world champion, who exploded on the scene when he won bronze at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996, have also dismissed rumours of Mayweather being short on money.

Mayweather has continued to promote fighters in his time out of the ring with lightweight star Gervonta Davis his biggest name and the one he is pushing to be a big -per-view draw.

There has been calls for Davis to face recently crowned undisputed lightweight champion Haney or two-weight world champion and super-featherweight ace Shakur Stevenson but Mayweather has poured cold water on his man facing either any time soon.

“If Rank has Shakur Stevenson and Devin Haney, then they fight each other,” added Man.

“They shouldn’t worry about Tank.

“They should leave Tank to doing what he’s doing.

“As long as Tank is with Floyd and Al [Haymon] then he has nothing to worry about.”
