Whether you love him or hate him, nobody can deny that Floyd Mayweather is one of the best boxers to ever grace the sport. He is currently 44-0 with 26 knockouts and finally he is attempting to silence his critics by facing the best opponents in the world.
While promoting his highly anticipated fight against Canelo Alvares on Sept. 14, Money May discussed his future and life outside of boxing. His plans may make you wonder if he's on crack.
"In 30 months my career is over," Mayweather, 36, said. "I want to rack up my six victories and hopefully do commentating and keep the sport of boxing alive. That's what I'm focused on."

Mayweather may be a lot of things, but he is not somebody most people want to listen to while they're trying to enjoy the fights. He's too cocky and arrogant to be a decent boxing commentator. He would somehow make every single fight all about himself which would cause most viewers to either turn off the even altogether or it would force everyone to find their mute button as quickly as possible.
Once Mayweather retires as a professional boxer, he would be much more productive as a promoter instead of a commentator. He has all of the money and he has the type of personality that would help sell fights.
Money May has also recently said that he may continue fighting longer than initially expected. When he signed a 30-month contract to fight six times with Showtime/CBS, most people believe that he would retire afterwards. Now he's not so sure.
"After my five more fights, guess what? I think after (getting to) 49-0 we may stay in this sport a little longer. This Sept. 14, it's just another walk in the park," Mayweather said.
Mayweather should continue boxing for as long as he remains dominant. As long as he stays undefeated, he can make a lot more money inside of the ring than he will ever be able to outside of the ring.
