"These are just rumours. I'm retired. I'm finished with boxing. I stay in shape,” Mayweather said in an interview with Fight Hype.

"I am not retired from business. Would I fight with McGregor? People make $370million. I make that in one night. I made over $320m twice. It only took me 36 minutes or 28 minutes, something like that."

"If this guy (Broner) wants to fight Floyd I say 'you guys sell out little arenas and do some little baby moves, not bad, but I'm older and a lot wiser, meaning I don't want to end up like my uncle Rog. A lot of fighters don't know when to give up.

"Even the fight with McGregor it was smart on my behalf and smart on his behalf. I can make more money than any other fighter.

"Even if we did it again it's entertainment and it's business. I'm not boxing - no boxing at all.
