Floyd Mayweather recently came face-to-face with yet another person who seems dissatisfied with his career as a whole.
People just can’t seem to leave Floyd Mayweather happily retired can they?
Floyd Mayweather has booked a one-way ticket out of the boxing ring for good following his fiftieth professional victory last August. The win, which of course came over MMA’s Conor McGregor, saw Floyd call time on his legendary career with a perfect 50-0 record but still, despite two decades of near-perfect dominance at the top of the sport, people still just can’t let him rest easy.
Wins over the likes of Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, Shane Mosley, Oscar de la Hoya, Marcos Maidana and Manny Pacquiao figured in his flawless career and though the famously-selective Mayweather has drawn some criticism upon himself due to his business-like approach to picking opponents, his technical mastery inside the squared circle has led many to name him amongst the very best to ever do it.
So recently, when Floyd’s car was surrounded by members of the public, one heckler decided to confront ‘Money’ and accuse him of being scared of fighting one of the world’s top middleweights, Gennady ‘Triple G’ Golovkin, who recently went to war with one of Mayweather’s old opponents Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, in what was one of the biggest sporting events of the year.
The fight itself was declared a draw – though many felt Golovkin did more than enough to get the win, but despite that fact, virtually no-one is complaining about the fact that we will get to see this bout rematched at some point next year.
Floyd, who no doubt watched the fight intently, seemed to be in no doubt whatsoever about both his retirement and his feelings on fighting Golovkin.
