In case you were wondering if Floyd Mayweather would be open to more big-fights after his mega-fight against Conor McGregor on August 26th, you can stop.

According to Mayweather, he is done after the McGregor fight.

“I mean, just honestly speaking, I thought that [2015 fight against Andre Berto] was going to be my last everything,” Mayweather said during a conference call, per MMA Mania’s Ryan Harkness.

“But you just never know what can happen. We’re here with this big event. It’s just, this is my last one, ladies and gentlemen. I gave my word to Al Haymon. I gave my word to my children. And one thing I don’t want to do is break that.

Mayweather also made the announcement on Twitter via Golden Boy Promotions official Twitter account.

“I gave Haymon my word. I gave my children my word. I’m going to stick to my word. This will be my last fight.”

Naturally, one would wonder if Floyd’s mind would change if he were to suffer defeat on August 26th.
