Floyd Mayweather says he has had “crazy numbers” thrown at him to fight again.

But despite offers of “nine-figure” sums of money, Mayweather, who retired after his 49th successive victory last September, is not planning a comeback.

“As of right now, I am out completely,” said the 38-year-old multiple world champion.

“If I do get the itch to come back, it really won’t be for the money but I have to get paid. That’s why the nickname is Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.”

American Mayweather won world titles at five weights and retired with an unblemished record.

He is about to embark on a speaking tour of the UK and spoke to BBC World Service Sport about his current activities.

On retirement, he said: “Life is great. My family has a comfortable life from me going out there and taking chances and taking risks. That was the ultimate goal. My kids will be going to college real soon.

“I am very happy that I was able to be a risk-taker. Roll the dice and take chances. Me being in the 12th grade, leaving school, leaving everything behind, leaving my family behind to go out there and do something that I love to do. It paid off in the long run.”
