“I only got two more fights left (after Saturday) and after the next two fights I just want to build the Mayweather Promotions brand,” said Mayweather, via ESPN’s Dan Rafael.

“My next fight is in May and my last fight is in September, so a year from now will be my last fight.”

The pound-for-pound king also shared that he plans to remain involved in boxing as a promoter and build Mayweather Promotions brand.

He also denied that there are ongoing talks for a possible match between him and fellow welterweight titleholder Manny Pacquiao.

“Not true,” Mayweather said. “I can’t say what the future holds, but Arum and Pacquiao is trying to sell tickets for the (fight with the) guy named (Chris) Algieri. Trying to sell tickets for that fight. I don’t know where they fighting, I don’t know anything about what Top Rank is doing.”

Well, what do you think? Should Mayweather fight Pacquiao in the boxing ring before he retires?
