Mayweather explains recent sparring, says door is still open for a comeback

Floyd Mayweather talks to FightHype about being spotted in a recent sparring session and says he still might need a little more time before making a comeback.

In an interview with FightHype.com, Floyd Mayweather gives some insight into his recent training which included a sparring session that had many believing he's primed for a comeback. When asked about sparring recently and a potential return Mayweather said:

"My dad asked me when I'm coming back. So, you know, is the door still open? Absolutely. [Sparring] felt okay, I guess...I feel I don't miss it. I don't miss it...I got in there to spar. It was a lesson that I was teaching to all the young fighters in the gym and I wanted to show Adrien Broner also certain defensive moves that he can use. And I also wanted [Thomas] Dulorme to see where he was at, to check his skills out. So, you know, that's really what it was.

"I think I need a little more time off because as of right now I'm not missing it. I don't know, man. Different days I feel different ways...but like I always say, if it's meant to be, it's meant to be."

With Mayweather admitting a ring return is possible, combined with him popping up at the Manny Pacquiao fight over the weekend, you can bet speculation about him coming back for a 50th fight and a sequel against Pacquaio will continue to be a hot topic of discussion.
