Mayweather: I’m an old man

Former five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather has no plans on coming out of retirement to face the likes of Manny Pacquiao in a rematch, saying he is an 'old man' and would rather use his brains than damage his body.

The 39-year-old Mayweather ended his career undefeated (49-0, 26 KOs) retiring after his last fight in September when winning a 12 round unanimous decision over Andre Berto in Las Vegas to retain his WBA (Super), WBC, The Ring, and lineal welterweight titles.

He has since focused his time on boxing promotions after founding Mayweather Promotions in 2007 when he left Bob Arum's Top Rank.

In an interview with Fox, Mayweather confirmed that he has no intention of returning to the ring and would instead look to give back to the sport. 

"I’m an old man,” Mayweather told Foxsports. “I’m treating my body good, being smart. I was still able to compete at the top level for 20 years. 

"I’ve done a lot of boxing. I just want to give back to young champions right here."
