By Mark Vester

In a recent conversation with BBC Sport, Roger Mayweather, uncle/trainer of WBC junior middleweight champ Floyd Mayweather, said that his nephew will not retire. He thinks there is too much money out there for Floyd, more than enough to even make a "dead man walk." Floyd promised to retire after he won a split-decision over Oscar De La Hoya last weekend at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Floyd ain't quitting. Too much of this money will make a dead man walk," Roger said. If I'm Oscar De La Hoya, I'm thinking, 'Why not fight Floyd again? Look at the money we made.'"

Mayweather is not the only one, there is a good possibility that De La Hoya will also retire. De La Hoya promised to keep fighting regardless of the Mayweather outcome, but now he is not so sure. Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, told BBC Sport that De La Hoya will take some time to think about whether or not he plans to return to the ring.

"Oscar is such a great champion, he gave the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world an amazing fight. What he needs to do is get some distance from this fight, and see what he wants to do. A great champ like Oscar deserves when he retires for it to be his decision, and his only. If he retires, he does so off a great performance. Oscar has nothing left to prove," Schaefer said.

ummm.... im sure your joking but there isnt even a chance at that happening. Floyd is not a business partner of someone, he is a business man for himself. He wants all of it and doesnt need golden girls helping him. He is already starting his own promotional company and has many others in different industries.

OMG another one of you guys. Floyd fought Oscar. Could Margarito beat Oscar? HELL NO. Floyd would murder him but keep on hating and Floyd will keep on winning. If you don't like don't watch.

OK, maybe i was a little out of line with that comment, but all kidding aside, do you honestly and truly believe that floyd is that good?!?!?! Do you root for him because you both are from Michigan? Do you root for him because he is fast? Please explain. Can you honestly answer why you think he's as good as you think he is? As a boxing fan for the last 27 years, I can tell you why I think floyd isn't as good as you think he is. But can you or your buddy tysonjones honestly tell me why you think he's the best?? I feel like i'm probably wasting my time. I mean, after all, you do have his name as your username, and his picture as an avi, that alone should tell me that no matter what I show you, you're still going to think he's the best.

do i think he is the best fighter ever? no. Who do i consider the best fighter ever. I dunno. If i had to say best poudn for pound fighter ever? i wouldnt say SRR. I would easily argue RJJ would beat any middleweight ever past or present. As for tellign you why i consider floyd great? For one he is 38 and 0 and has fought in the US his whole life. I dont care who you are and how good you are, its hard to stay unbeated for over 12 years. He has about as much skill and ability in a boxer that i have ever seen. I think his style resembles alot of the greats. I personally love his defensive style. The way he tucks his chin into his shoulder and uses his other arm to protect his body and the other side of his face. its brilliant. I actually defend myself that way and works very well. I strongely believe floyd could win every fight he ever fought, the problem is they all wont be very exciting. No one will ever dominate oscar delahoya. That is just not going to happen. Floyd cant look great agsint guys 20 pounds heavier than him. yes i know SRR did. But the guys SRR beat at those weights had many losses. We all want to compare old fighteres to new fighteres. The truth is we can never truly tell who will beat who and who's better than who. Some guys have other guys number, ala tarver/jones. Tarver hardly has any skill, but he did have jones number. Same thing with Junior Jones and marco antonio barrera, and ivan robinson/ arturo gatti. If you want to know more just ask and ill answer to the best of my ability. There is someone out there that can beat floyd. Wil that person ever get the chance to fight floyd? Maybe. You yourself may have floyds' number. But you will never know. We will never know until it happens. But floyd hasnt lost, and his only close fight was against castillo and i thought he won it. I think floyd easily beat delahoya even though the scorecards were close. I know this is long and alot to read, but take the time. If you still have a problem with floyd. Just ask.

Nice rambling. All you had to say was "i have no idea why i root for him", thats all. First off, the 38-0 thing, in all honesty is not really 38-0. He did lose to Castillo the first time they fought, but you'll never admit that. I will admit floyd won their 2nd fight decisively. You say that you strongly believe floyd could win every fight he fights? I agree with you!!! All he has to do is hit and RUN!!!! (you call that being the best???) Its easy to take on guys 20 pounds heavier!! Once again, just hit and RUN!!! You say SRR's opponents had a lot of losses? Guess what? All the guys that floyd beat, more then half of them were chumps!! Like i said, nice rambling. I asked a simple question regarding floyd, and you bring up all these boxers that don't figure into the equation. I honestly thought you could back up what you felt...NEXT!

38-0 24 Knockouts. At his natural weighs his hit and runs were hit and boomS! Floyd has unreal talent that he has adopted into a more defensive style since he has moved up from his NATURAL WEIGHT of around 130-135. He is the best right now and my favorite boxer currently. I am not from Michigan. I am from Dallas Texas. I think he is as good as I say because of his accuracy and catlike reflexes. He is one of, if not the toughest boxer to land solid shots on up high. He is amazing on the ropes and makes opponents look silly, like Oscar. I don't only consider boxers offense as what makes them great but I split it up 50/50 or different depending on the fighters style and if they are fighting at a comfortable weight. I can tell that you are one of those oldschool boxing fans (which my father is) and do not like Floyd because of his cocky ass mouth. I understand that. I feel that I have answered your question from MY side now even though I really didn't have to or much less need to. I have so much more I could throw in there but it's not worth the time. It is funny to me how before the Oscar fight there were several people who hate Floyd but now AFTER Floyd won there are millions who hate him???

dude i could argue with you all day and you would just keep talking. I have more facts inside my head than you could ever look up in a lifetime. If all your here is to argue about hwo much you hate floyd, thats a sign that you seriously need to get a life or start boxing for real. Because me and few other guys here would give you a massive boxing lesson if you were to say that **** in front of my face.
