Mayweather has turned down ‘crazy’ money offers to fight again

Floyd Mayweather is so committed to retirement he says he has turned down “crazy” monetary offers to return to the ring.  Mayweather, 38, last fought in September, quietly beating Andre Berto following a heavily-hyped bout with Manny Pacquiao that turned out to be a dud.

Showtime, CBS to stream PPV broadcast of Mayweather-Berto fight

Shelling out $100 for the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight last May was too steep a price for many fans (and sports bars that also had to pay exorbitant fees). But even those who were willing to buy the pay-per-view broadcast ran into issues as cable companies were overwhelmed by the volume of orders within a short period of time, freaking out customers who had just paid a hundred...
