Floyd Mayweather leaves the door open for a return

Floyd Mayweather Jr. spoke with Showtime Sports commentator Jim Gray during the DeGale-Medina, Bute-Jack bouts and was asked about a possible return which he responded to stating that he has been in talks with multiple networks including CBS and Showtime about a possible return and in his words "Crazy" numbers have been thrown his way

“Upwards, of course, of nine figures. But I’m truly blessed beyond belief, and I really don’t know what we’re going to do. But right now, I’m really happy being on this side helping our fighters.”
— Floyd Mayweather Jr.

When asked who about middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, Mayweather responde

“Triple G, I think that it’s best that he go up and fight Andre Ward,”
”I think that would be a good fight for Triple G and Andre Ward” “How can Floyd Mayweather fight at 160 (pounds) when I can never even make 154?”
— Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mayweather last fought in September of 2015 against Andre Berto in a dominate performance for the former pound for pound king. Many question whether or not Mayweather is truly done with the sport and believe he will return. 

There are several intriguing opponents who would be eager to challenge Mayweather should he decide to end his retirement and make a return to the ring. Danny Garcia who Floyd mentioned in his interview would be a possibility and would likely spark some interest from fight fans if the fight was indeed made. There is also Keith Thurman and Kell Brook both of which are also undefeated and would provide a big challenge to Mayweather.
