Floyd Mayweather Jr. reveals 'nine-figure' talks with CBS/ Showtime for possible ring return

Is the itch of top-level boxing affecting Floyd Mayweather Jr.? Or is too hard for him to ignore the call of the Almighty Dollar and stay retired from prizefighting?

In an interview before the main event of Showtime's Championship boxing Saturday night in Washington DC, Mayweather Jr. revealed that there are recent talks between him and network giant, CBS / Showtime that involves plenty of money for him to come out of retirement.

"I've been talking with CBS and Showtime and you never know. Crazy numbers have been thrown my way, upwards of - of course, nine figures," the undefeated champion told Showtime's Jim Gray during the talk.

Mayweather Jr. was in the nation's capital to lend support to his fighter, WBC Super Middleweight champion Badou Jack who defended his belt against former champ, Lucian Bute.

"If I came back, of course it will be a nine-figure pay day and probably a championship fight."

Gray mentioned the names of Gennady Golovkin, Danny Garcia and the winner between Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter as possible opponents to Mayweather Jr.

"Well Triple G, I think that it's best that he go up to fight Andre Ward. I think that will be a good fight. That's a good matchup. How can Floyd Mayweather fight at 160 and I cannot even make 154," said Mayweather Jr.

"Danny Garcia, another name, undefeated prospect, undefeated champion at two weight classes, very exciting fighter, you just never know," described Mayweather Jr. of the current WBC welterweight champion.

"Thurman and Porter both exciting fighters , that's a good matchup but I'm happy being on this side. Every day, everyone is asking me, Floyd are you coming back? Floyd are you coming back? All I want to do is build my company, Mayweather Promotions, help these fighters become world champions, like Badou Jack. That's what I'm about right now."

Mayweather Jr. defeated (UD) Andre Berto at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas last September to end his career at a perfect 49-0.

Before that, he figured in the most lucrative fight in boxing in a win (UD) over Manny Pacquiao in what was dubbed as the "Fight of the Century", also at the MGM Grand.

The "Fight of the Century" was a colossal commercial success where both fighters pocketed a nine-figure paycheck after 36 minutes in the ring .

Pacquiao fought and defeated welterweight, Tim Bradley last April 9th at the MGM Grand, in what he said was his final bout. He is now actively campaigning for one of twelve seats for the Philippine Senate this month.
