Floyd Mayweather Announces His Official In-Ring Retirement

You have to respect the efforts from Conor McGregor as an amateur going into his first professional boxing fight, but at the same time a bigger amount of respect must be lumped on Floyd Mayweather's shoulders, as he once again proved why he is undefeated in the ring.

He is certainly the best of his generation.

Floyd announced his retirement in the middle of the ring following his 50th win in the squared cirlce. "I chose the right dance partner to dance with," he said, as he thanked the Irish fans.

He then confirmed that he'll never fight again, leaving his legacy behind with an emphatic record of 50-0.

The greatest of his generation, and one of the greatest ever, has bowed out in style.
