In what he says is the final fight of his career, Floyd Mayweather once again used his speed and legs last night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena to win his fight against Andre Berto.
Back in the ring for the first time since May when he beat Manny Pacquiao in a “mega-fight” that became the richest bout in boxing, Mayweather landed 232 of 410 punches while Berto connected with just 83 of 495.
This has made him an undefeated champ at 49-0 with 26 KOs, equaling the mark of heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano, who also retired as an unbeaten champion.
As of now, Floyd insists he won’t come back for a 50th fight. He completed his six-fight deal with Showtime that earned him more than $300 million.
“You got to know when to hang it up,” Mayweather said. “I think it’s my time to hang it up. I’m close to 40 years old. I broke all records. There’s nothing else to prove in the sport of boxing. Now I just want to spend time with my family and children and take Mayweather Promotions to the next level.”
