Although there has been several rumors circulating thru 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. 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 post was published shortly after UFC president Dana White texted ESPN's Brett Okamoto: "No deal is even close to being done."

Prior to Mayweather's post on Tuesday, NSAC chairman Anthony Marnell had confirmed to ESPN that the commission had been made aware of active negotiations between the two camps, but said the fight still faces several challenges.
