It was thought Mayweather would immediately make a beeline for Jake after the fight following their scuffle in Miami last month.

But The Moneyman seemingly has no intention of ever lacing up his gloves again, saying: "As far as me coming back in the sport of boxing, absolutely not.

"As far as me doing an exhibition again probably not."

Mayweather's comments came after he refused to address a potential showdown with the younger Paul brother in the ring.

In his post-fight interview, he said: "We don't know what the future holds.

"But I'll talk it over with my team and see where we go from there.


"You gotta realise I've been in this sport for over 25 years. I understand that I'm not 21 and I'm not 25, but I had fun tonight."

Mayweather dominated his second exhibition, although he was on the receiving end of a handful of decent shots.

Paul's spirited display impressed the 44-yar-old, who said: "I had fun.

"You got to realise that I'm not 21 no more.

"But it's good to move around with these young guys, test my skills – just to have some fun.

"[He was] a great level fighter. Strong, tough. He's better than I thought he was."

As impressed as he was by Paul's valiant effort, Mayweather was irked by the 26-year-old's constant holding.

He said: "I wanted to give people a show and he was fighting to survive, he was the bigger guy but his background was wrestling so was good at tying me up.

“This was like a training session really.

“Just going the distance was a win for him. He can grapple and was good at holding.

"When a guy that size is holding you, it’s hard to get him off you. I had fun, he did too. It was cool.

“I was training a few days a week, so for me to be retired, be a grandfather and fight a guy in his 20’s, when the money comes, we will see who the winner is."
