A REMATCH with Manny Pacquiao is not in Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s mind.
Although Mayweather has long retired from boxing, people still clamor for a grudge match with Pacquiao, years after a 2015 fight that went down as the richest in boxing history.
But the unbeaten American fighter insisted that his focus right now is on his business and family - and not a rematch with Pacquiao.
“I had a great career, Manny Pacquiao had a great career, he’s an unbelievable fighter, and I’m a businessman and my focus right now is just Frontrow,” he said on Wednesday during the SV Private Party organized by Frontrow at Corinthian Gardens in Quezon City.
“That’s what I’m focused on [my family]. Tomorrow I can feel a little different about boxing but as of right now, that’s just how I feel,” he added.
The 41-year old Mayweather held court before mediamen and guests, a day after standing up a press conference organized for him by Resorts World Manila.
Questions about the no-show were barred during the event.
“Manny Pacquiao is a hell of a fighter, we had a great fight and we both had great careers. We move on and do other things in life,” he said.
“I had a fun time when I was fighting, great time, but I did so many other things, I’m a chameleon,” he added. “Like I said before, my life is great, I’m positive, I wish Manny nothing but the best.”
“Manny Pacquiao is a hell of a fighter and the Philippines is a great place and you guys produced one legendary champion,” he continued.
Mayweather said he’s enjoying his time with his children.
“I’m promoting my fighters but what I’m working on right now is my youngest son, who went to college and is becoming an entrepreneur; my oldest son is working on his music and his modeling; my oldest daughter is also working on her music,” he said.
“And giving back to family also so that’s my focus right now. Boxing, I will always be involved to give back to young fighters,” he added.
