Floyd Mayweather Jr. is showing no signs of wanting to return to the sport anytime soon as the pound for pound king enjoys the fruits of his considerable labor.

The 39 year-old, who hasn’t graced the ring for six months, has boasted that he now makes sums of $1 million and above each month with having to train or lace up the gloves at all.

‘Money’ says shrewd moves financially have made it possible to back at least $12 million per year and be safe in the knowledge that his career legacy is firmly secured.

Mayweather said this week: “They say ‘Life Is What You Make It’ and to that, I’ll agree wholeheartedly! As I sit here acknowledging how blessed I am to be retired a year shy of my 40th birthday, it’s nearly impossible to say that I am not living the “American Dream”. Without my usual six-pack or muscle tone in sight, I can sit back and get the last laugh, knowing that I put in the “Hard Work & Dedication” to be 49-0. I’m blessed to wake up every morning, certain that my bank accounts are growing. Making 7 figures monthly without moving a

“I’m blessed to wake up every morning, certain that my bank accounts are growing. Making seven figures monthly without moving a finger just further proves that I’ve made brilliant investments and decisions that allow me to walk away from the ring, comfortably. I’m proud to be a King.

“I’m proud to be a King,” he added.

Five-weight world title holder Mayweather is now concentrating on building his ‘The Money Team’ and ‘TBE (The Best Ever)’ brands whilst also promoting fighters in his role as Mayweather Promotions CEO.

A rematch with Manny Pacquiao would easily generate another $250m should Mayweather decide to make a return this year in what would also mark the 20th anniversary of his professional debut.

Any fight would give the American the chance to be a record-breaker as far as surpassing boxing legend Rocky Marciano’s similar undefeated run, although Mayweather seems happier than ever to be out of the melting pot.
