Saying he no longer has the passion to fight, boxer Floyd Mayweather announced his retirement today.

Mayweather is walking away from AT LEAST $20 million by retiring. His next fight was scheduled to be a rematch against Oscar De La Hoya in September. The last Mayweather/De La Hoya match was the richest fight in boxing history.

If he stays retired (the 31-year-old has un-retired before) Mayweather would be one of the few boxers in history to retire undefeated. Mayweather is 39-0 for his career with 25 KO’s. Former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano was the last major fighter to finish his career undefeated. He retired in 1956 with a 49-0 record.
