Mayweather, 38, easily outboxed his younger opponent over the 12 rounds to retain his WBC and WBA welterweight titles and improve his perfect career record to 49-0, matching the benchmark set by former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano.

Berto, a 30-1 underdog against one of the best defensive fighters of all time, dropped to 30-4 as he suffered his fourth loss in his last seven fights.

Mayweather after the fight: “It was a good fight. I knew he would be a tough competitor. Experience played a major role tonight. He is a very athletic boxer. What can I say? I was the better man tonight.”

Asked if he might be tempted to come back for a 50th fight, Mayweather replied: “My career is over. It’s official. I’m financially secure and I’m in good health.

“There’s nothing left to prove in the sport of boxing,” said Mayweather, who has made more than $700 million during his stellar career.
