Mayweather Tells UK Fans What His Sweetest Victory Was

Published On February 6, 2016 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News

Floyd Mayweather was on tour in the UK this week at a number of public appearance events.


Floyd Mayweather (49-0-26KO) is currently retired from the sport of boxing since his last fight against Andre Berto in September 2015, where he won a comfortable unanimous decision victory on points at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

All indications are that he is very content in retirement and will be not making a return to the ring anytime soon, with him this week in the UK saying he is categorically ruling out a return to boxing as an active fighter, and is rather focused on his promotional business within the sport – Mayweather Promotions.

Responding to one of his fan’s questions at a public appearance this week, Mayweather was asked who the sweetest victory of his career was out of all 49 professional foes, to which he said:

“Most likely the Pacquiao fight, you know because it was record breaking, over $77 million that we did at the gate, and of course I made $300 million out of it, so I would say the Pacquiao fight.”

It remains to be seen if Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather will stay in a state of permanent retirement in the coming year or two ahead, with the lure of going for the elusive 50-0 record at some point likely to draw substantial monetary offers from various parties.
