Floyd Mayweather strongly hints at comeback, says 'crazy numbers' offered

Only eight months since he announced his retirement, Floyd Mayweather opened the door to a comeback on Saturday during an interview with Showtime's Jim Gray.

Mayweather, who promoted Badou Jack's majority draw with Lucian Bute on Saturday in Washington, D.C., in a match for the WBC super middleweight title, said he's been in talks with CBS and Showtime, whom he worked with for the final six fights of his legendary career.

Asked by Gray if he would come back for the money or the opportunity to raise his record to 50-0, Mayweather laughed and said, "Both."

He said several times he was happy in retirement, but he didn't slam the door on a return to the ring.
"Yes, I'm happy to be where I'm at," Mayweather said to Gray. "Everyone is asking, asking me, 'Is Floyd Mayweather coming back?' Right now, I'm happy on this side [of the ropes], but I've been talking with CBS and Showtime and you just never know. But for now, I'm happy on this side.
