Floyd Mayweather is Not Considering Retirement, According to Roger Mayweather

Publish date:

Floyd Mayweather earned a great victory on Saturday night, ultimately defeating Miguel Cotto in a thrilling 12-rounder. Mayweather later called the fight with Cotto his toughest ever.

After the match, Mayweather talked retirement -- saying that there was an "80-20" chance of it happening.

However, his uncle/trainer, Roger Mayweather, doesn't think that will happen.

"He ain't gonna retire when he can make that kind of money," he told MLive.com.

Roger thought it was a great fight, too.

"People liked the fight," he said. "They think the fight was competitive. But it wasn't as competitive as some people thought it was. Rough fight. But as far as the physical punishment, it was put on Cotto. It wasn't put on Floyd, it was put on Cotto."

I don't think Mayweather will be retiring anytime soon. We saw what he did a few years back when he announced his retirement. Then along came Manny Pacquiao, who stole all the fame and took the title as the "best fighter in the world," and Mayweather came running back.

I don't see Mayweather leaving the ring until he gets his fight with the Pacman; "Money" Mayweather really wants it, as he said in the postgame press conference.
