FLOYD MAYWEATHER was exhibiting an uneasy relationship with the sport as long ago as 2007. After the victory over Oscar De La Hoya, a massive event that launched “Money” as the star he is now, he announced an ‘official’ retirement after that fight, only to box Ricky Hatton [pictured above], another lucrative assignment later that year. Again, after stopping Ricky Hatton in 10 rounds, Floyd announced he was out of the game. “What else is there for me to prove? These guys can’t beat me. I’m the best,” he said.
