FLOYD MAYWEATHER is keeping fit in retirement as he ran two miles in under 12 minutes – but still has no desire to make a boxing return.

The American legend posted a video on Instagram running on a treadmill, where he showed off his impressive speed.

But Mayweather recently admitted in an interview with the WBC that he does not miss fighting.

He said: “I’m OK. Floyd Mayweather made a lot of smart investments.

“One of the buildings I own is the tallest commercial building in America. So if you get a chance go to New York and check it out. This is my ninth sky scraper.”

The building Mayweather is referencing is the One Vanderbilt, a 93-story skyscraper in the Midtown Manhattan neighbourhood of New York City.

Mayweather has stakes in the building, which opened in 2020 after three years of construction.

After beating UFC star Conor McGregor, 33, the unbeaten icon hung up the gloves, but not for good.

He has since returned for two exhibition bouts, the first against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, which he won in a round.

But this June, Mayweather faced YouTuber Logan Paul, 26, in an extraordinary spectacle bout, giving away TWO STONE in size.

Paul managed to take it the full eight round distance, technically avoiding defeat.

Mayweather has since talked down another return, despite Julio Cesar Chavez’s best efforts.

The legendary boxers were both in attendance at the WBC convention where it was announced they agreed to an exhibition.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said: “At the same time, they turned to each other and they said, ‘Let’s do an exhibition’. Chavez and Floyd.

“And they are here to announce they will be doing an exhibition next year either in Mexico or Texas where many Mexicans will be.”

The pair then shook hands, but a day later, Mayweather snubbed interest in the bout despite fighting talk from 59-year-old Chavez.

Mayweather, 44, told reporters: “He kept talking about how he wanted to do an exhibition, I said, ‘I can use one hand if you want me to?’

“He was trash talking. But I wouldn’t do that, I wouldn’t want to do that, because that would tarnish his legacy as well as my legacy.”
