Boxing's biggest draw Floyd Mayweather has confirmed earlier this week that he plans to fight for the last time in September 2015, when his current record-breaking television with showtime comes to an end.
Mayweather signed the six-fight deal rumoured to be worth an astonishing $250m last Feburary, in a collaborative deal with CBS that locked the 45-0 superstar into six fights over a 30-month period.
Since signing that incredible contract Mayweather has maintained his flawless record with wins over Robert Guerrero and Saul Alvarez, but 'Money' recently admitted during a speaking tour in South Africa that he has no plans to fight on past his current Showtime moneyspinner.
He said: "I remember my first fight when I was a kid in 1987 and September 2015 will be my last."
Last September's dominant win over Alvarez saw Mayweather send records tumbling in terms of box-office revenue, with the Las Vegas showdown the highest grossing boxing event of all time with a reported $150m in revenue.
The 36-year-old is yet to confirm his next opponent, although a bout with British former world champion Amir Khan is widely expected to take place on May 3rd.
