Floyd Mayweather has said that he will not fight Conor McGregor.

The boxing legend was rumoured to take on the Crumlin native and a report suggested that the pair were close to securing a deal for their fight.

However, the American has shut down talk of a fight and any future fights with anyone.

Floyd posted a series of photos of text on his Instagram explaining why.

“There seems to be several rumours floating around media recently however, let the record show, there hasn’t been any deals made in regards to a fight between myself and any other fighters,” he wrote.

“I am happily retired and enjoying life at this time.

“If any changes are to come, be sure that I will be the first to let the world to know.”

Floyd urged that he is happily retired and that if he ever was to change his mind, he would be the first to tell people.

“Although there has been several rumours circulating through media suggesting that I will have an upcoming fight, I’d like to set that record straight and state that there has been no deals made on my behalf in regards to a bout with any fighter at this time,” he continued.

“I am happily retired and enjoying my life. Rest assured that if any changes come about, I will be the first to let the world know.”

The athlete finished off his statement by telling Conor that if he wants to fight, he needs to “take care of his business with the UFC” first.

“Listen, Conor McGregor, if you really want to get this fight done, take care of your business with the UFC and then have your people get in touch with my people,” he added.
