Floyd Mayweather Puts The Brakes on Talk Regarding Move to MMA
Earlier this year, Floyd Mayweather repeatedly teased that he may give MMA a go. But, now the undefeated boxer has said he’s not thinking about ending his retirement to fight again.
Several months ago, Mayweather went from hinting that he was thinking about trying MMA, to outright saying there was a “50/50” chance he’d fight in the cage. But, recently TMZ caught up with the 41 year-old, and Mayweather said this, when asked if he was planning to compete in the Octagon (quote via Bloody Elbow):
“I’m not thinking about fighting right now. Two weeks from now, you can do an interview with me because I can contradict myself. I’m only human.”
“So, two weeks from now, you ask me the question, guess what I’m gonna say, ‘I’m fighting in MMA.’ And then two months from then, I’mma say ‘I’m not fighting in MMA, I’m not fighting in boxing.’”
Mayweather boxed Conor McGregor last summer and stopped the now former UFC champ in round ten.
