He might do boxing again eventually, maybe knock the shit out of that Paulie guy he sparred with. But I think he's back to MMA for now.
I think he can make more money in boxing. It's estimated that he may earn $200M from this fight. The MMA just doesn't pay their fighters.

While I certainly agree that MMA doesn't pay it's fighters, I don't see Mac making that kind of money in boxing without Mayweather. He's also under contract with UFC, who allowed and profited on May/Mac. I think they'd be less than enthused about promoting a second boxing match while he ties up their divisions.

But Conor does his own thing. Everybody said the Mayweather fight would never happen. Who knows? He could join WWE and I wouldn't be surprised.

A popular rumor. However, he owed less than $30 million before the fight with Conor. There have been several leaks of Floyd's finances that prove he has the means to pay the IRS bill. Whether it's laziness or arrogance that he fell behind is anyone's guess.
