Floyd Mayweather will not fight Rocky Marciano to a draw

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather told the Associated Press on Friday that he will retire once his six-fight pay-per-view deal with Showtime expires in September 2015.

The 36-year-old Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs), who is slated to throw fists on four more occasions, last exited the squared circle on September 14 after earning a majority decision over Saul Alvarez to gain the WBC light middleweight crown.

Although the 23-year-old Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KOs) didn’t perform poorly and consistently forced the action, Mayweather landed flush shots for 36 minutes that flustered and slowed the youngster.

Numerous media outlets have reported that Mayweather will next meet human chandelier Amir Khan on May 3.

A defensive virtuoso ignoring Father Time with an incredible work ethic, Mayweather apparently wants to equal Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 mark and leave the sport as an unbeaten champion.

However, entirely dismissing Mayweather’s itinerary, the reigning pound-for-pound king will never shelve the gloves in a tie with Marciano.

Considering Mayweather has an ego the size of the Philippines, onlookers should expect The Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007 to negotiate an extra bout.

Unfortunately, for reasons that defy logic, Floyd Mayweather will refuse to outscore Manny Pacquiao until the end.
