FLOYD MAYWEATHER RETIRES

FLOYD MAYWEATHER

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.

Did boxer Floyd Mayweather throw FAKE $ 100 bills into the crowd at an appearance at an Atlanta nightclub this weekend?

The website sandrarose.com says an Atlanta man was almost arrested after trying to use one of the hundreds he caught at the appearance at a local gas station. The bill turned out to be counterfeit.

The site speculates that members of Mayweather’s crew may have switched out a stack of real money for the counterfeit bills and pocketed the cash.

A similar incident reportedly happened in Las Vegas where Mayweather’s crowd money turned out to be fake.
