Mayweather is “happily retired”

Floyd Mayweather took to social media to ridicule the “backseat drivers” who are saying that he will be returning to the ring, saying he is happily retired.

The 39-year-old Mayweather retired undefeated after 49 bouts in November 2015 after a 19-year professional career during which he won five world titles in five weight classes, having earned millions of Dollars through his career.

There has been speculation in the media that Mayweather could make a return to the ring to face Manny Pacquiao in a rematch after being paid over $100m for their 'Fight of the Century' in May 2015, which Mayweather won via a unanimous 12 round decision.

Mayweather posted a photo on Instagram of the $100m cheque he earned for the Pacquiao bout with a caption stating he had no plans on coming out of retirement to fight again.  

"Gotta love these backseat drivers so worried about another man's legacy instead of trying to write their own. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh," Mayweather said on Instagram.

"This is just one of my many checks, a cool $100,000,000.00 that I still have every dime of. Y'all still have to work however, I'm happily retired. At the end of the day, it's them Benjamin Franklins that matter to me, so the joke's on you.

"I've made smart investments, sorry for those who thought that I couldn't read, write, or count. Y'all call them watches, I call them time pieces. Y'all call them boats, I call them yachts. Y'all call them houses, I call them mansions. Y'all charter jets and we own jets.
