Floyd Mayweather Jr.: Boxing is the best sport in the world, but I'm not coming back | DAZN News US

MEXICO CITY — Floyd Mayweather was born into boxing and will not give it up, as it is in his DNA. However, he assured that he does not miss being in the spotlight, as he is still linked to the sport through its new stars.

"I'm not going back to boxing. No, I won't. Boxing was very good to me because I was able to make smart investments on the outside. But now I want to help the upcoming champions like Gervonta Davis, who I don't understand why he's not in the pound-for-pound championships. Terence Crawford, Errol Spence, (David) Benavidez, the list goes on. There are a lot of very tough fighters out there, great young champions that I'm proud of," said "Money" Mayweather, who is visiting Mexico City for the WBC Convention, in an interview with DAZN News.

Mayweather said his approach to boxing with exhibitions is more than enough to keep him having fun.

"That's why I went and did an exhibition with the YouTuber, Logan Paul, we had fun, I had fun. We gave people a bit of fun and people have to know that there is a difference between a real fight and an exhibition. With an exhibition I only sparred once in a while, but I'm sure if it was a real fight, there would have been blood from the beginning," he added.


During his visit, Mayweather pointed out the great influence that the body led by Mauricio Sulaiman had on his career.

"23 or 24 years ago I won my first world title in a great fight with Genaro Hernandez, may he rest in peace, he gave me the opportunity and we fought in Las Vegas and put on a great show. I'm very blessed, it all started with Jose Sulaiman, Mauricio has a great vision like me and I'm the best of all time and that's why my face is on the WBC belts. I will be on the side of the WBC, I will be on the side of boxing and I will always stand up to say what is right and we need more things like this convention. We have to clean up the sport, boxing is the best sport in the world, it is about blood, sweat and tears," he stated.

"I feel very blessed (to appear on the WBC belt), he (Jose Sulaiman) saw my talent and he (Mauricio Sulaiman) also saw. Many records I broke within the sport of boxing. It's the spirit of the sport. Being in the sport and taking it to the next level, that's what my career was all about. Now I will continue to open doors for the little guys that come after me," he concluded.
