Floyd taking time off to chill

October 1, 2016

Former undefeated five-division world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather has plenty of time on his hands now that he’s hung up his gloves.

The American is frequently posting on social media and this time has revealed to fans the stunning setting on ‘one’ of his private estates.

Mayweather, who retired from the ring in September 2015, has been persistently been linked with a blockbuster bout facing UFC star Conor McGregor but revealed those talks failed to materialise.

‘I tried to make the fight happen between me and Conor McGregor,’ Mayweather Jnr told FightHype.com. ‘We wasn’t able to make the fight happen, so we must move on.’

The American added: ‘I feel honoured to be the biggest name in MMA and in boxing, and I don’t even compete no more.’

His latest Instagram post pictured the ‘Money Man’ relaxing in lavish surroundings and he told his followers, ‘At one of my private estates; sitting back, thinking how it’s one thing to get there and make it, but the question is… can you maintain it?

‘I had my first fight in 1987 and my professional career started in 1996. I retired before 40 and I’m not even 40.’

Could this display of his vast wealth be a jibe back at McGregor who last month said he was interested in fighting Mayweather as long as he could come up with the appropriate funds for the crossover fight.

‘Right now, I have Floyd running around the Showtime [Network] offices gathering my money. That’s what he’s doing,’ the Irishman said.

‘He’s running around the Showtime offices, begging those executives to come up with the 100 million cash he needs to fight me. As soon as he gets my money, we can fight.’
