Default Re: Why did "I'll uhhhh let you take the money" Mayweather retire for 2 years...

Floyd did no different than what other fighters have done in the past, he waited for them to slow down and for some dust to settle before putting that 0 on the line.
Oscar has done it, maybe not retired but he sure as hell knew how to target big money fights when the risk was low, Example Vargas, Mayorga....
all fighters have a way of matchmaking Floyd simply chooses to retire let the dust settle take the weakest link in his come back fight why? cus nobody will complain that he is fighting a guy like Victor Ortiz in his come back fight as he has been out of the ring.

its a perfect way to not only justify an occasional cherry pick but to generate money in that come back fight as this is the whole Hes back theme and fans pay to see fighters come back.
