It appears that undefeated WBC junior middleweight champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is going to stay retired until the right amount of money comes along to change his mind. There is a lot of momentum in the boxing public for a showdown between Mayweather, 30, and former three-time division champ "Sugar" Shane Mosley.

Mayweather told BoxingScene's Bill Emes that he would fight Mosley if the money is right. But, Mayweather has a problem giving Mosley a sizable share of the overall pot of money and plans to stand by his position based on the money the two fighters have made throughout their careers.

“Here's a guy. You can take all of Shane Mosley's biggest fights. As a matter of fact, we take every fight in Shane Mosley's career. What I made in one night with Oscar, Shane Mosley hasn't made in his whole career,” Mayweather said. “And he fought Oscar twice and he fought Vargas twice. You take his two fights with Vargas, you take his two fights with Oscar and you take his two fights with Winky Wright and his two fights with Vernon Forrest and he still didn't make more than what I made in one night. I still got money coming in from the Oscar fight.”

“Like I said before, Mayweather is a cash cow. Whatever I touch don't turn into gold, it turns into platinum. It's money Mayweather. If the price is right, we can make it happen.”

Mayweather admits that Oscar De La Hoya is the only man that can negotiate with him on the terms of a fight, but he will not even think about negotiating the terms of a fight with Mosley and other potential opponents.

“I set the plateau of the money and what I make. Listen, when I fight fighters I tell them what they get, they don't tell me what I get. They only person that can negotiate with me is Oscar De La Hoya because he's the type of fighter that's in that position,” Mayweather said. “But as far as Shane Mosley and guys like that, guys like that can't even negotiate, talk money with me. I tell those guys 'this is what I'm gonna give you.'

Mosley was one of De La Hoya’s sparring partners for the May 5 scrap with Mayweather, and Floyd did not miss his opportunity to take a shot at Mosley for volunteering his services.

“What do I look like? A guy like Mosley is on 24/7 being a sparring partner. C'mon man, I can't fight a sparring partner. He's a sparring partner. How are you gonna go out there and spar for free and then tell me you want to make the same type of money I'm making. And you haven't reigned undefeated; I've done it for a decade,” Mayweather said.

If you know how boxing works and you understand it like i do, This pretty much sums up the fact that this fight will happen. Now please dont turn this into every other thread about how mayweather is just after money and mosley would destroy him or soemthign like that. Every member here knows how everyone feels about all that. So just tell me, Who do you like, Who do you think will win, and what kind of credit will the winner get.

Everything Floyd says is true. Lance, you keep giving guys their chances to take shots at Floyd with these money articles!!! If Floyd beats Mosley he solidifies himself IMO to the point where nobody can say a damn thing.

shane. my bad for starting this thread then. just wanted to update gusy who dont check out other news sites. tommy : who would you rather see him fight, last timei checked, alot of people think mosley can win. part of me thinks he can pull the upset. remember, floyds only 30, he still has at least 5 years of fight left in him if he chooses to, it may only be 5 fights, but thats about all he would need to fight all the top guys.....cotto, hatton, mosley, possibly margarito and maybe 5 years down the road, andre berto.

id personaly like to see him fight the guy still standing after margie/williams/cotto, my moneys on margie.

ive always maintained tonys the hardest fight out there for floyd, it was also the richest when it was offered. and isnt floyd talking about $$, they sure ment nothing when tony was calling.

i dont think it had to do with money when offered margarito, margy only had a wbo belt, a belt floyd always made sure he never got, margarito wasnt a big name at all and he made 2 million more in his next fight after that offer against baldomir. I too would like to see all 3 off those guys fight him. I think he beats margy and williams , but i think cotto gives him hell.

and mosley holds the interm version of the title floyd relinquished.

the fact is, ive heard floyd contridicte himself more than once over the past few years, he says its about belts one minute then the next he says its about money, ive picked up on this 3 or 4 times from floyd.

and at the end of the day margie was offering both a belt and money at the time!

as much as i think floyd would destroy margarito, he is very contradictory and i wish he would just fight as well.

Mayweather, Mayweather, Mayweather. Michael Jordan contradicted himself several times. When your whole life is practically on camera that tends to happen.

Floyd works out all day carrying around all that jewelry. I bet that watch weighs ten pounds just in diamonds!!!

He had on a different watch after the Oscar fight, and he just had a diamond, platinum plated bracelet on his left wrist. His boxing glove chain is just rediculous. Have you seen that thing?
