Still too early to suggest Joe Calzaghe will stay retired but instinctively I believe he will, but contemporary Floyd Mayweather Jnr was never likely to remain retired irrespective of the wealth he has accumulated, throwing hundred dollar bills from nightclub balconies has a way of dwindling the coffers. It has to be enforced doesn’t it? After all, the mooted Oscar DeLaHoya match up of last year would have earned him another multi-million purse and a thick wedge of associated earnings. He retired not needing that pay day. Something changed.
Comments attributed to estranged father Floyd Snr. add weight to last week’s rumours that HBO had already reserved a July date for his return. Juan Manuel Marquez, Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto and Manny Pacquiao will all be salivating at the potential pay day. I suspect naturally bigger foe Shane Mosley will know he’ll never get the call.
