Former pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather can truly live up to his name should he decide to switch codes to UFC, according to the fighter himself.
With limited boxing options on the table, Mayweather is considering heading over to the Ultimate Fighting Championship to sign a multi-fight deal with Conor McGregor’s handler Dana White.
Mayweather, who is now 40 years old, is never far from taking column inches regarding a return to the ring despite numerous retirements.
“You already know I’m a money-getting motherf**ker,” Mayweather said a video posted on YouTube.
“I’m Money May. They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back. I can come right back to the UFC.
“If I want, I can go, I can come right back to the UFC, I can go fight in the Octagon.
“I can do a three or four fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. Remember, I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, and you motherf****** love me, and I love you motherf******.”
Whether there’s any truth in Mayweather’s intentions remains to be seen – but it can’t be doubted that the American has the pulling power to make at least $250m per fight should he be unable to resist a 51st bout.
As WBC minimumweight champion Wanheng Menayothin (49-0) closes on his perfect 50-0 record, Mayweather may well get itchy knuckles to fight again, although the only way to stave off the Thai scrapper would be to once again trade blows in a boxing ring.
