Floyd Mayweather says there is presently no urge to make a return to the ring and insists a comeback will only happen “if it is meant to be”.
The former five-weight world champion retired from boxing last September after he defeated fellow American Andre Berto in Las Vegas and equalled heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano’s unbeaten 49-0 record.
Mayweather says he is comfortable with his decision to retire from the sport and has expressed his delight of being able to control his own destiny, along with his advisor Al Haymon.
“What is meant to be in life is meant to be. If it is meant for me to come back and fight again for the UK fans, then I’ll come back,” Mayweather said.
“But, as of right now, I don’t have the urge and I am far away from boxing as possible. I stay away.
“Once I got to a certain situation, I wanted to be able to control the sport the way I wanted to control the sport. I dictate and control boxing the way I want to dictate and control the sport. Right now, we have all the say so in the sport of boxing, me and Al Haymon.”
