In an interview with George Foreman on MSNBC, conducted by Dan Fleschner, Foreman discussed many things including the recently retired Floyd Mayweather Jr.

When asked if he really thinks Mayweather Jr will remain retired, Foreman stated: "Floyd Mayweather is young. You have to understand, when a boxer says, "I'm retiring," that means, "I'll be back pretty soon. As soon as I run out of money, I'll be back!" [laughs] So he'll be back. He's talented, he's got a lot of youth in him, and he can still do
it.

Foreman was also asked if he had any advice for Mayweather? "Most important thing is, if you walk away from boxing, those paydays are not going to be there, you're not going to be earning. So play like you are a poor man. Play poor. The old saying is, "Cry hungry with a loaf of bread under your arm," said Foreman, adding: "If you want to stay retired, don't spend money. Have fun. There are a lot of really great things you can do real cheap. You can hang out with your kids at McDonald's, go on fishing trips...just leave the yachts alone."
